A small rural town experiences a string of murders with the victims all sharing one commonality... their eyes have been brutally ripped out. As law enforcement tracks what they think is a serial killer, even more strange occurrences start happening, such as the emergence of ``The Sleepless,`` a mysterious cult who worships an entity they call ``The Sandman.``
``The Sandman`` is based on the mythical Eastern European character that brings people their dreams... or in this case... nightmares. The feature will be a hard ``R rating`` and in terms of atmosphere, it will be on a similar level to The Conjuring movies, however we are going for a slightly more disturbing/dark feel, and it will definitely NOT rely on jump scares (we are allowing for 1 or 2 at most). We are going to try and stay away from as many common horror tropes as possible. In addition the film will rely HEAVILY on practical effects rather than CGI.
