THE NIGHTMARE worth a watch .. maybe not before bed

NIGHTMAREASCHERREVFEATIn April of this year the HORROR REPORT profiled the NIGHTMARE, a documentary film from Rodney Ascher (from ROOM 237).. It's a series of stories told by people who Ascher collected to tell their tales of sleep paralysis. Along with the verbiage, horrific images of what they saw--documentary style..

The creation is amazing. It's a documentary but can easily as one of the best horror movies of the year..The hat man. The shadow people.. the beds shaking and the constant state of fear that someone is in when they are sleeping but yet awake, terrified and not able to move.

This documentary can be viewed on NETFLIX right now, and it's worth your time.. I recommend it, along with a dark room and a cup of your favorite beverage..

I have a story for your as well.. a personal one and one from a friend.

A friend of mine had a night issue of paralysis a few months ago.. He told me about it twice now, most recently just now as I write this post.  He was unable to move, but he did not see the shadow man or the hat man. Instead he was awake but could not open his eyes.. or move at all. Just was still, stuck in a night mare.

And me..

Yes .. me

I had my own strange occurence about seven months ago.

I fell asleep early the night I had my issue.. but then woke up only an hour or so afterwards.. when I did, my eyes opened and I was awake. I think. But what I remember more than anything else was the movement of the bed--I felt like there was an earthquake, like the bed was rapidly shaking and violently moving me up and down. But all the while I was unable to move.

Luckily for me the hat man and shadow man and creatures of the closet did not appear. And I hope they never do.

THE NIGHTMARE on Netflix is important. Not only does it offer up entertainment and horror, but it also gives right to an important question: Just what are these night issues when they happen? Why do they happen? And what are they conjuring up? Imagination.. or reality.. One that no one, yet at least, understands.

THE NIGHTMARE gives no answers. But leads to a number of questions that may haunt you before you lay yourself down to sleep and pray the lord your soul to keep..

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet.

No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
