The Nightmare

The Nightmare

Directed by Rodney Ascher

Welcome to the most terrifying place on Earth... A documentary-horror film exploring the phenomenon of 'Sleep Paralysis' through the eyes of eight very different people. These people (and a shockingly large number of others) often find themselves trapped between the sleeping and waking worlds, helpless, totally unable to move but aware of their surroundings while being subject to frequently disturbing sights and sounds. A strange element to these visions is that despite the fact that they know nothing of one another, (and had never heard of sleep paralysis before it happened to them), many see similar ghostly 'shadow men.' This is one of many reasons many people insist this is more than just a sleep disorder.

It was all right. Some stories were more interesting than others, which I guess is to be expected. But, it was fairly interesting overall.

I've heard of sleep paralysis from people I've met, had my own theories on it but never have there been so many similarities like in this documentary. The shared encounters are interesting at first, then the spooky levels start to build... amazing!

Wow I don't do 5 skulls very often and I certainly didn't expect to do it here based on what I had read. But what a well done movie!
