The Nightmare (2015) - Trailer / Poster
A sleep paralysis movie that is a documentary about the nightmares endured during this very scary moment for some. Director Rodney Ascher dares to venture into this world where the victims of this have a real fear of sleeping. The film centers directly on the Shadow People who visit these unlucky individuals. I even saw a Freddy Krueger looking shadow in the trailer, coincidence... I think not. Wow, the last few seconds of this trailer are scary... I have to see this!
THE NIGHTMARE’S subjects hail from different backgrounds and walks of life, but share eerily similar visions of malevolent, near-human beings that grow increasingly aggressive the longer the sleep paralysis recurs. Are these just random hallucinations or something more? Rational explanations get challenged by the similarities of the “shadow people” multiple subjects describe looming over them. Ascher, who has first hand knowledge of sleep paralysis, brings the full intensity of this experience to the screen while maintaining empathy and respect for his subjects. As the film unfolds, distinctions between the documentary and horror genres fade as do easy lines between reality and the imagination.
Synopsis:A look at a frightening condition that plagues thousands; sleep paralysis.
