Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.27.15] documentary

Imagine waking up, seeing someone you don't know in your room and then discovering that you can't move. You can’t run, you can't hide – you're frozen. Sleep paralysis is a real thing and director Rodney Ascher is about to let the world know all about it.

You may recognize Ascher's name. He's the director behind Room 237 (review), the documentary on the conspiracy theories behind Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. For his follow up, Ascher is mixing documentary filmmaking with horror in The Nightmare.

In his new movie, Ascher explores sleep paralysis in a conventional way that is turning out to be more than people bargained for: by re-enacting individual's experiences of sleep paralysis and from early reviews of the movie, which recently debuted at Sundance, The Nightmare is at once a documentary and an effective horror movie. Sounds great!

No news yet on a release date but expect to hear more on this one in the coming weeks.
