Sleep Apnea Causes Patients to be ‘Dead Awake’

Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Gold Circle Films (White Noise, The Fourth Kind, Slither, New Daughter) is producing a new horror thriller, Dead Awake, which is currently out to writers. Here’s the logline we were provided with: “Unable to breathe while sleeping, sleep apnea victims experience horrific consequences.” The idea that something horrible happens when you sleep has been touched on by the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, but this sounds like an intriguing new spin. Unfortunately, the details are slim pickings, but when more information comes available we’ll update you.
