Movie Summary

Following the death of his girlfriend in a car accident, a man suffers from post-trauma and attempts to maintain his grip on sanity. Now renting a dingy basement suite, he is plagued with constant interruptions from his landlady and terrifying bouts of sleep paralysis. His sense of the real and the illusory world begins to blur when he is visited nightly by hallucinatory representations of his depression in the form of a Succubus.
