Plunge into the chilling depths of marital horror (bliss) with SLEEP, the gripping debut from writer-director Jason Yu. Expecting parents Soo-jin and Hyun-su find themselves in a waking nightmare when Hyun-su develops a frightening sleep disorder. What begins as harmless, if unsettling sleepwalking soon transforms into terrifying somnambulatory behavior, leaving Soo-jin questioning both her husband’s sanity and her own safety. 

As they turn to medical professionals and a peculiar shaman for answers, their once-happy relationship begins to crumble under the weight of fear and suspicion. With expertly crafted suspense and a deft hand for storytelling, Yu skillfully blurs the line between reality and the supernatural. Each scene of SLEEP pulses with tension, building towards an electrifying climax. Featuring standout performances by Jung Yu-mi and Lee Sun-kyun, SLEEP is a haunting tale of love, betrayal, and the unknown. Don’t miss your chance to be riveted by this pulse-pounding thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end. Screening Support: Independent Film Festival Boston
