Rodney Asher is the guy behind one of the most intriguing film documentaries in years, Room 237, which is all about the clues and conspiracies behind Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel The Shining.

Ascher is coming back to intrigue and spook us with another doc, this one on the phenomenon of sleep paralysis. It’s called The Nightmare, and from the look of it, it’s bound to cause quite a few!

Dread Central: I saw Room 237 at Laff the year before last, and I thought it was really well-crafted and quite labyrinthine… will The Nightmare have the same vibe?

Rodney Ascher: I think so, at least about the attitude, seeing as how I'm still in a similar headspace in a lot of ways, and this mystery is in some ways bigger and more complicated than a single film, even one as formidable as The Shining. »
