163rd Street Films is collaborating with a group of Latino filmmakers to create a thriller about sleep paralysis, titled GOODNIGHT. The film is set to release in 2018.
The film follows Lisa as she attempts to live a normal college life, but she is haunted by something abnormal that keeps holding her back. From a young age she’s been tormented by a dark figure while in a state of sleep paralysis. For some time this went away, but then anomalous nightmares and daydreams returned to her. With the help of her boyfriend and best friend, Lisa investigates her past. She uses sleep to encounter this ‘shadowman’. Her mother Nancy gives her profound confidence, but facing childhood trauma brings more terror than she expected.
Sleep paralysis is a very real and serious condition that affects millions of people in the United States alone. The team’s goal is to bring awareness to sleep paralysis and also entertain their audience while doing so.
