Content has just announced that cult director Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237) will direct THE NIGHTMARE, a disturbing investigation into the demonic visions experienced by victims of sleep paralysis and provoked by Ascher's own unsettling experiences with the condition.

Here's a bit of WebMD's article about sleep paralysis:

"Have you ever felt like you were awake but unable to move? You might have even felt afraid but could not call for help? This condition is called sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis may leave you feeling frightened, especially if you also see or hear things that aren't really there… Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, you may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking."

THE NIGHTMARE is produced by Preferred Film & TV‘s Ross M. Dinerstein (THE PACT, DARK SUMMER) and Kevin Iwashina (JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI), alongside the producer of the Academy Award-Winning film, UNDEFEATED,  Glen Zipper. The horror documentary is executive produced by Content's Jamie Carmichael (THE PACT, BLACK BOOK), who will also introduce the film to international buyers at the American Film Market this week.

"ROOM 237 was a mind bendingly brilliant movie. Rodney has a piercing intellect and a unique cinematic vision for horror," said Content’s Jaime Carmichael. "We can’t wait to follow him down this new supernatural worm hole..."

I have this all the time!

Before I knew what it was I often thought I was haunted by ghosts or demons. Turns out I'm just very self aware and often break out of my sleep at moments where I shouldn't. It can be a very scary thing, but once you realise what it is it's not that bad. Although sometimes I still can't help myself panicking when I get the choking sensation, usually to the point where I stay awake for the rest of the night.

yes, it was terrifying...first time it happened I thought I had a heart attack, then the next time it happened I saw someone standing in front of my tv. Just a tall shadow figure. Then the last time a figure was waving to me right next to me as i slept in my chair. It's not a fun experience, Looking forward to this film
