Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.05.15] horror documentary

I was a little shaken after seeing Rodney Ascher's The Nightmare (review) last week. I didn't suffer from sleep paralysis after seeing the doc but it did manage to creep me out and it really got under my skin in a way most movies never manage. It also left me with a lot of questions.

I had the opportunity to speak with Ascher shortly after seeing his new documentary and he was kind enough to answer some of those burning questions including sharing some details about his own personal experience with sleep paralysis, the mood reel he created and gave to his staff to get them into the headspace for production and how the movie, from the interviews to the re-enactments, all came together.

The Nightmare opens in NY and LA on June 5.

Recommended Release: Room 237
