Telling stories has been something that’s been so close to my heart since I was a kid. I love making people feel things or see things another way. In the case of ‘Sleep Paralysis,’ it is based primarily on my own experiences, but hopefully, you take something from it and still have a good time. That’s what it’s all about after all.
