Ever experience the horror of sleep paralysis. If not, I can personally speak of just how terrifying it can be, which makes ‘Mara’ a film that can potentially hit home for me, as well as many others.
Javier Botet and Olga Kurylenko both star in ‘Mara’, which, according to the synopsis:
“Criminal psychologist Kate Fuller is assigned to the murder of a man who has seemingly been strangled in his sleep by his wife and the only witness is their eight-year-old daughter, Sophie. As Kate digs into the mystery of an ancient demon which kills people in their sleep, she experiences the same petrifying symptoms as all previous victims and spirals through a chilling nightmare to save herself and Sophie before she dares fall asleep again.”
