The mysterious real-life phenomenon of sleep paralysis gets a terrifying screen treatment in the horrific tale of a children's author who suffers from inexplicable night terrors after moving into a picturesque country estate. Valerie Whitmore is an author in search of inspiration. Though her works have held millions of children worldwide in rapt attention, she needs a place to feed her imagination and get her creative juices flowing again. Though the lavish, lakeside country home she purchases at first seems like the perfect setting to collect her thoughts and ponder her latest book, an increasingly intense series of paralyzing nighttime terrors threatens not only to end her successful career, but her very life as well.
