Sleep paralysis seems to be all the rage these days, and the next new film to tackle the subject is Be Afraid. Sit still. Don’t move (as if you had a choice). Watch this clip!
The horror film stars Brian Krause (Sleepwalkers), Kevin Grevioux (Underworld; I, Frankenstein), Louis Herthum (“Westworld,” “True Blood,” The Last Exorcism), Jaimi Paige (Peacock), and Callie Thorne (“Rescue Me”).
Written by Gerald Nott and directed by Drew Gabreski, Be Afraid will be released On Demand and on Digital June 1st (U.S. only). A DVD will follow later this summer.
Not long after John Chambers and his family arrive at their new home in a small country town of Pennsylvania, John begins to experience sleep paralysis. Lying there paralyzed, trapped within his own nightmare, other-worldly beings visit John. They are entities which exist in the darkest shadows of the night and can only be seen out of the corner of one’s eye.
These encounters begin to haunt John, transforming to complete terror as he discovers the entities’ sole purpose… the abduction of his seven-year-old son. In the end John will uncover the town’s horrific secret, a portal on his land, and make one last attempt to save his son before the shadow people permanently take him away to their world.
