Documentary filmmaker Rodney Ascher loves to creep you out and if the following trailer for his latest endeavor, The Nightmare, is any indication, this may well be his most terrifying excursion yet. Sleep paralysis, just the name makes you uneasy right? And, imagine being unable to move while horrifying events occur around you – creepy beyond words.

I think this new trailer does a more than adequate job of setting the stage.

In the film, Ascher looks at eight individuals and documents their night terrors using reenactments to drive the horror home. It really looks quite unsettling to me. We’ll know soon enough as The Nightmare will be hitting VOD platforms on June 5th.
