Rodney Ascher (Room 277) has wrapped production on his latest film, The Nightmare, and we have the shadowy first still and details for you right here. Sleep tight… you may wanna turn on that nightlight, too!
From the Press Release
Production wrapped last week in Los Angeles on THE NIGHTMARE – the latest film from acclaimed director Rodney Ascher (ROOM 277) and Content.
THE NIGHTMARE follows the disturbing investigation into the demonic visions experienced by victims of sleep paralysis and provoked by Ascher’s own unsettling experiences with the condition.
The horror documentary is produced by Ross M. Dinerstein (THE PACT, THE DIVIDE) and Glen Zipper – producer of the Academy Award® winning film UNDEFEATED. The film is executive produced by Content Film President Jamie Carmichael (THE PACT, BLACK BOOK) and co-produced by Tim Kirk (ROOM 277).
Content is handling worldwide sales on THE NIGHTMARE and working with Preferred Content on North American sales. A teaser is being shown in Toronto during TIFF. The film has already been pre-sold to the UK (Altitude) and France (The Jokers Films).
Director Rodney Ascher said: “This project was a once in a lifetime opportunity to cross-breed two genres I love, documentary and horror. After exploring people’s real-life waking nightmares in long, free-flowing personal interviews, it was a bizarre trip through the looking glass to bring them to life and get lost inside of them on the set.”
THE NIGHTMARE follows Ascher’s hit Kubrick analysis feature ROOM 277, which 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. It was repeatedly listed as one of the must-see documentaries of the year.
