Hypnagogia (2014) Trailer
Trailer for the short film Hypnagogia.
Johnny is a photographer, he is also a rapist and a killer. Nadia visits him to do some modeling work, but ends up being raped and killed. Johnny suffers from hypnagogia (sleep paralysis), and a girl in white tries to kill him in his dreams. But what is reality, what is dreams... In Hypnagogia, not everything is as it seems...
From Norway and Violence Productions comes Hypnagogia, a 27 minutes long short film about a terrifying phenomenon called "sleep-paralysis". Director Lars-Erik Lie is obviously inspired by Italian horror-masters, such as Dario Argento and Mario Bava, in this very visual and colorful film. Believe it or not, Hypnagogia is actually a microbudget-film, made for only $666.
Hypnagogia blends the stylish Italian-style of horrorfilm-making with the Japanese ghostgirl-stories, together with beautiful locations and gothic music, made by Eric Hyman (known from the 80`s band Animal), and Norwegian composer Kaspar Marius Jota.
