A young woman must save herself and her friends from an ancient evil that stalks its victims through the real-life phenomenon of sleep paralysis…

The film premiered at Shriekfest 2016 on October 6, 2016.

“There’s a fine line between paying tribute to your horror heroes and the terrifying tales of the past – and an audience asking the question “why?”  Dead Awake walks that tight-rope, borrowing heavily from Craven’s signature film [A Nightmare on Elm Street] while also branching out on its own with humor and its own set of unique rules.” Michael Klug, Horrorfreak News
