Nicolas Bruno suffers from sleep paralysis, and is unable to move while being haunted by his worst nightmares.
“[They’re] dark, mysterious, and they’re all based on my personal experiences of literally being paralyzed with fear… I like [to] give the viewer a glimpse inside the strange and chilling quality of a nonsensical nightmare.”“Sometimes when I would wake up, I’d have shadow figures and hands grabbing at my neck, and I wouldn’t be able to move.” Nicolas describes.
“Sometimes the room would shift, the walls would start melting and the windows would open and close. After not being able to move or scream, you’d just go along with the ride and have to experience it…no matter how terrifying it is.”
