“Dead Awake,” By One Of The Creators Of “Final Destination,” Is Available For Streaming

May 24, 2017 — Sleep paralysis is a deeply frightening phenomenon.

Neither completely asleep nor awake, sufferers of sleep paralysis find their minds alert, but their bodies cannot respond — paralysis leaves them locked in and defenseless. No matter how powerful the stimulus — and fear is extraordinarily strong — The sufferer lies in a paralyzed state, unable to move.

In Dead Awake, an ancient evil force preys on those in this locked-in state, and one of the victims must find a way to prevent other sufferers from succumbing.

High production values, excellent acting and direction raise this above the usual horror film.

Screenwriter Jeffrey Reddick, who helped create the Final Destination franchise, brings a sure touch to his creepy suspense, and director Phillip Guzman pays homage to Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Stream Dead Awake on Amazon Video.
