Sinopsis: In the Dark is a look at the unexplored side of the Sleep Paralysis phenomenon. It features the journey of one’s dream, entering deep into the sleep paralysis state, and further encounters the nightmare that comes with the strange condition, called “Spiritual Attack”. A woman wakes up in a false awakening, and discovers that she’s under sleep paralysis. Physically, her body is sleeping, but mentally her mind is awake, and spiritually, her soul is defenselessly lingering in the dark. She then encounters different spirits/entities: there are some trying to reach out, some attempting to scare, some playing tricks, and there’s someone who intends to harm her.
