Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome is a real phenomenon where seemingly young, healthy people can die mysteriously in their sleep.  Survivors of the syndrome report a feeling of intense terror while being paralyzed in their bed, as a shadowy figure attempts to grab or strangle them.

 

When Dallas Roberts, a struggling late night radio host, reports on-air about a series of bizarre, unexplained, sleep fatalities, a skeptical investigator from the Center for Disease Control, Alison Eastwood, is called in to examine his claims. Together, they discover a deadly, psychological condition where fear actually causes the shadow beings to appear.

 

This supernatural thriller, based on true events, interweaves never-before-seen footage, interviews and news reports about this horrifying, real phenomenon, taking "found footage" movies to a whole new level.
