The Grue-crew climb into the dreamlike world of Rodney Ascher’s documentary about sleep paralysis, THE NIGHTMARE (2015). Following a small group of subjects relating their experiences of horrifying nightmares and being frozen in their beds, unable to move, unable to scream, sometimes unable to breathe. Paired with this are a series of reenactments that are, at times, as scary as any horror film.

Review: The Nightmare (2015)
The synopsis is simple, “A look at a frightening condition that plagues thousands; sleep paralysis.” and so is the approach to tackling a fairly complicated subject matter. For THE NIGHTMARE, director Rodney Ascher sticks to sharing the experiences of a small gathering of poor souls who each suffer from sleep paralysis and horrifying nightmares. The Grue-crew chime in with their reactions to this unique and challenging genre documentary.
What Have You Been Watching: Inside Out
Thomas Mariani and The Black Saint plead with horror fans to take a look at Pixar’s latest film regardless of the fact it is far from horror. They both proclaim the animated feature, INSIDE OUT, to be the best film of 2015 thus far. Listen to why.
