Suffering from an occasional bout of insomnia? Not like this one, I bet.

The consciousness-altering dream states of nocturnal slumber are explored in this terrifying pair of new clips for Dead Awake. Final Destination's Jeffrey Reddick wrote and directed this indie horror flick, which investigates the rare-but-real medical condition known a sleep paralysis, where the person afflicted is unable to move during a waking nightmare.

Here's the official sleepy synopsis:

Official synopsis: Kate Bowman (Jocelin Donahue) is a straight-laced social worker who finds herself plunged into a world of supernatural terror while investigating a series of mysterious deaths. Each victim suffered from a chilling condition known as sleep paralysis, a nightmarish assault on the senses that immobilizes its victims as they dream. As a terrifying entity begins to haunt Kate’s friends and loved ones, she must fight to stay awake to stop the nightmare she’s unleashed!

Also starring Lori Petty(Tank Girl, Point Break), Jesse Bradford (Bring It On), Jesse Borrego (Con Air), Brea Grant (Dexter, Heroes), and James Eckhouse (The Avengers, Big), Dead Awake staggers into theaters on May 12.

Open your eyelids wide and ingest these new previews before you take your afternoon nap.
