Content Film has announced that cult director Rodney Ascher (Room 237) will direct The Nightmare, a disturbing investigation into the demonic visions experienced by victims of sleep paralysis and provoked by Ascher’s own unsettling experiences with the condition.
From the Press Release:
THE NIGHTMARE is produced by Preferred Film & TV’s Ross M. Dinerstein (THE PACT, DARK SUMMER) and Kevin Iwashina (JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI), alongside the producer of the Academy Award-winning film UNDEFEATED, Glen Zipper. The horror documentary is executive produced by Content’s Jamie Carmichael (THE PACT, BLACK BOOK), who will also introduce the film to international buyers at the American Film Market this week. Iwashina and Carmichael will handle North American sales.
Ascher’s hit Kubrick analysis feature ROOM 237 premiered at Sundance, screened in Cannes’ Director’s Fortnight, and won the Best Director (Documentary) prize at the Austin Fantastic Fest and IDA’s Creative Editing award in 2012. It is repeatedly listed as one of the must-see documentaries of 2013.
Ross Dinerstein said, “We’ve assembled a great team with Rodney, Kevin, and Glen and are going to collectively break new ground with this film.”
“ROOM 237 was a mind-bendingly brilliant movie. Rodney has a piercing intellect and a unique cinematic vision for horror,” said Content’s Carmichael. “We can’t wait to follow him down this new supernatural worm hole…”
