Starring Jocelin Donahue (Insidious 2), Jesse Bradford (Swimfan), Lori Petty (Orange is the New Black), Brea Grant (Halloween 2), Jesse Borrego (Dexter), and James Eckhouse (The Avengers), the film centers on a young woman who must fight to save herself and her friends from an ancient evil.
Directed by Phillip Guzman, Dead Awake enters on Kate Bowman (Jocelin Donahue), a young woman who discovers an ancient evil stalking people who suffer from sleep paralysis.  As Kate finds herself besieged by this terrifying entity, she teams up with a local artist (Jesse Bradford) to try and stop it. With a skeptical doctor (Lori Petty) questioning her sanity, Kate turns to an eccentric expert on sleep disorders (Jesse Borrego) who opens her mind to the horrifying truth: Kate has unwittingly opened the door for this evil to enter our world and has put the lives of her friend Linda (Brea Grant), her father (James Eckhouse), and everyone else close to her in danger.
