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 that 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.

The following is a simple screen test (best viewed on mobile).
Special effects, makeup, and overall cinematic quality will be greatly improved for the actual film.

"The Sandman" is coming soon. Click here to learn more.
