Room 237 director Rodney Ascher is back with The Nightmare, premiering at the ongoing Sundance Film Festival.
The pic is described as a documentary-horror film exploring the phenomenon of sleep paralysis through the eyes of eight people. “They (and a surprisingly large number of others) often find themselves trapped between the sleeping and awake realms, unable to move but aware of their surroundings while subject to disturbing sights and sounds.”
A teaser clip was posted below where a woman recalls her terrifying moment of sleep paralysis. Imagine not being able to move while you’re haunted by something – or someone.
