  • Published 1 month ago

Sleep paralysis is a common, yet underrated phenomenon in modern world. To put it simply, it is a phenomenon in which “an individual, either during falling asleep or awakening, briefly experiences an inability to move, speak, or react”.

Think of sleep paralysis as the transitional state between sleeping, and waking up. One of the biggest characteristics of sleep paralysis is the inability to move muscles.

And Rodney Ascher paints a perfect picture of sleep paralysis in his documentary “The Nightmare”. The director of the iconic Room 237 again goes into the psychological world, only this time for a different phenomenon.

The Nightmare is a human story. In what can be classified as a sleep paralysis documentary, the Nightmare focuses on “how people try to make sense of the world around them”.
