Dead Awake: Chilling new horror film from the writer of Final Destination reveals two startling clips
From the mind and typewriter (figuratively speaking… does anyone use a typewriter anymore?) of the man who penned and created Final Destination (that would be Jeffrey Reddick) comes Dead Awake, a surreal, frightening chiller that mines and exploits the very real condition of sleep paralysis.
Official synopsis: Kate Bowman (Jocelin Donahue) is 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!
Dead Awake stars Donahue (The House of the Devil), Lori Petty (Tank Girl, Point Break, Orange Is the New Black), Jesse Bradford (Bring It On), Jesse Borrego (Con Air), Brea Grant (Dexter, Heroes), and James Eckhouse (The Avengers, Big). The film is set for a May 12th release in theaters and On Demand via FilmRise. We have TWO new spooky clips to share below, in which Donahue comes face to face with her fears. Have a look and tell us what you think… unless you fall asleep, that is.
