HYPNAGOGIA REVIEW BY SIGNE JOHNSEN
I've learned about this movie from a friend on facebook a good time ago, got interested in the story behind it. I haven't seen all that many movies around this particulary subject before, and was intrigued.
Following up to the release of the movie, we got some few "tastes" of what it would finally end up like, but boy.... I had this image in my head of what it would be like, and thank Thor, I was horribly wrong. The way the crew behind this movie has interpreted sleep paralysis, is as a far as I have seen, anyone come. The mix between reality and fantasy is so thin when you are in sleep paralysis, that the two worlds collide and interact with eachother.
This movie takes the whole experience of being trapped in your own mind to another level. In some of the characters hallucinations I was terrifed, and sickened by what I saw. The mind are capable of doing all sorts of tricks on us, and that is exactly what is happening in this movie.
I don't have much knowledge of the Italian horror-masters that the writers behind this movie was inspired of, but I have seen my share of horror movies, and this one,
a microbudget-film as it is, really has done much with little budget.
If there is one microbudget-film you should see this year, this is the one.
