Gimme Some Truth: The Nightmare

Sat, Nov 3 / 7 pm
Directed by Rodney Ascher
2015, USA, 91 min

Introduction and Q&A with Rodney Ascher.

From the director of Room 237 comes a documentary-horror film exploring the phenomenon of sleep paralysis through the eyes of eight very different people. These people (and a surprisingly large number of others) often find themselves trapped between the sleep and the waking worlds, totally unable to move, but aware of their surroundings while subject to frequently disturbing sights and sounds. The Nightmare digs deep into not only the particulars of these eight people’s uncanny experiences, but also into their search to understand what they’ve gone through and how it has changed their lives.

Plays with The S From Hell / Directed by Rodney Ascher, 2010, USA, 9 min / A short documentary-cum-horror film about the scariest corporate symbol in history – the 1964 Screen Gems logo, aka “The S From Hell”. Built around interviews with survivors still traumatized from their childhood exposure to the logo after shows like Bewitched or The Monkees, the film brings their stories to life with animation, found footage, and dramatic re-enactments.

PRESENTED WITH THE GENEROUS SUPPORT OF MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC.

Reviews

The Nightmare manages a tricky balance of visceral fright and sincere investigation. It’s a rare non-fiction achievement that earns the ability to freak you out.
