This chilling sleep entrapment horror pleasantly surprised me. Olga Kurylenko plays a criminal psychologist who begins experiencing her patients deadly nightmares. This movie has an interesting clever concept and plays it out well. 

There are more than a few jumpy moments in it that director Clive Tongue surprises with. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend you watch this before heading to bed. Sleep paralysis is a real thing and this movie creeps you out with that idea of it.
