PARALYSIS is a psychological horror feature about overcoming grief and trauma through the lens of a horror film.
LOGLINE: A woman suffering from sleep paralysis learns her demons may be connected to a family secret.
SYNOPSIS: After family trauma, Haley Stone has isolated herself from everyone except her brother Nicky. Consumed by her complicated grief, Haley's well being is deteriorating as she experiences hallucinations, vivid nightmares, and debilitating episodes of sleep paralysis. These episodes become ever more pressing when Haley notices bruises on her body. She suspects the entity that visits her in the night is not just a figment of her imagination. With the help of a paranormal investigator, Haley must access the truth buried between realities and free herself from this living nightmare.
