The Nightmare is a documentary about sleep paralysis, a condition where sufferers are aware of their surroundings but unable to move. Since they're partially asleep, they have waking nightmares: shadow figures watching them from across the room, aliens coming towards their bed, feelings of impending doom, etc. Director Rodney Ascher interviews a series of people with sleep paralysis alongside reenactments of what they've experienced.
I had mixed feelings about The Nightmare. There were genuinely creepy moments, particularly a portion discussing nightmare archetypes like shadow figures which are independently reported by sufferers around the world. The film speculates that sleep paralysis could have a social contagion element which allows it to spread to people who hear about it. This is one of the major problems with The Nightmare. There's almost no discussion of the science behind sleep paralysis or examination of whether the interviewees' stories are typical. One of the director's previous movies, Room 237, was about off-the-wall interpretations of The Shining. It had similar problems: the interviewees' quirks and odd beliefs end up drowning out the rest of the movie.
