Paralyzed is a short film, directed by Aaron Sims, and written by Jeffrey Reddick about a horrific experience with sleep paralysis. It stars Brit Morgan, Jay Rodan, and Mark Steger.
Sleep paralysis is a bizarre phenomenon in which victims awake and find they can't move, and in many cases, they also sense that an evil presence is in the room with them. Many of those who have experienced this also report a frightening figure sitting on their chest, sometimes choking them. It is a world-wide phenomenon that has been documented since ancient times.
