Sleep paralysis horror Dead Awake is coming to the UK next month, and the trailer has arrived to remind you why going to sleep in a horror film is a terrible idea.
The film stars Jocelin Donahue (The House Of The Devil, Holidays, Insidious: Chapter Two) as “Kate Bowman…a straight-laced social worker who finds herself plunged into a world of supernatural terror while investigating a series of mysterious deaths. Each victim suffered from a chilling condition known as sleep paralysis, a nightmarish assault on the senses that immobilizes its victims as they dream. As a terrifying entity begins to haunt Kate’s friends and loved ones, she must fight to stay awake to stop the nightmare she’s unleashed!”
Final Destination‘s Jeffrey Reddick wrote the script, while Phillip Guzman directs. The supporting cast includes Jesse Bradford (Happy Endings), Brea Grant (Beyond The Gates), Jesse Borrego (Con Air) and the awesome Lori Petty (Point Break, Tank Girl, Orange Is The New Black).
Dead Awake is available on DVD and digital on 15 May. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
