Storyline

Josie is a teenage girl on the cusp of her sexual awakening. Her confusion is heightened by her extreme sleep condition, which blurs her dreams into waking life. Forbidden from leaving the house, she's long remained alone but for the supervision of her sister Samantha, for whom she yearns. But Samantha has a macabre fetish and a dark web of secrets. While Josie sleeps, Samantha manipulates her, making her the unwitting subject of her artistic obsessions of power, sex and death. Josie is the plaything in her ever-broadening cavalcade of sadistic fantasies that spiral towards destruction. To maintain her secret, Samantha uses Josie's condition against her while she's awake, further undermining her perception of reality. Josie must learn to trust her own perceptions or risk losing total control. Written by Dajus

A timeless nightmare set in an architectural maze of shadowy elegance and minimal dialog to complement one killer of a soundtrack.
21 January 2014 | by dirntygirrlSee all my reviews

A tale of two young sisters, isolated from the world around them.

Add a twist of the sublime with a foreboding sense of curiosity and you have one potent mix for original film making.

A young narcolepsy sufferer Josie lives with her seriously strange sister Samantha.

Josie struggles to grasp the difference between what is real and what is a dream thanks to her unfortunate illness that leaves her in a perpetual state of confusion and helplessness.

Her sister Samantha seems to revel in the realm of the unspeakable. Bound by crippling symptoms ranging from sleep paralysis and hallucinations, Josie finds herself driven deeper into solving the puzzle of her barely grasped reality of conscious life and surroundings.

While Josie struggles to control her world put on hold by her chronic neurological disorder, Samantha toys with a youthful ambiance of creativity mixed with a dark and tempting psychosis that leaves her cold and calculating towards her otherwise compassionate responsibility.

There is something undeniably romantic and seductive that lingers in this haunting dark subconscious awakening.

Goodman masterfully creates this horrifying web of deceit, anxiety and confusion that thrives in an isolated setting which is both beautiful and terrifying.

A timeless nightmare set in an architectural maze of shadowy elegance and minimal dialog to complement one killer of a soundtrack.

Wakey Wakey, is a visually stunning and delicately surreal journey that will grab your attention right from the get go.

Not to be missed.
