SLEEP (2020)

The genre stalwarts at Arrow Video have provided FANGORIA with an exclusive clip from the cerebral German horror feature Sleep (a.k.a. Schlaf), which is now streaming on the company's subscription-based platform. In the clip, Mona (Gro Swantje Kohlhof) has a vivid dream of a woman in a bright orange dress standing out in the snow in the wooded area outside her home. When she awakes, she may wish that was all that is out there. Check out the clip below!

The feature directorial debut of Michael Venus, Sleep premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February of 2020, and has since played in several other big fests, including Fantasia.

Here is the official synopsis for Sleep:

Tormented by recurring nightmares of a place she has never been, Marlene cannot help but investigate when she discovers the place is real. Once there, she suffers a breakdown and is admitted to a psychiatric ward.

Determined to discover what happened to her, Mona (Gro Swantje Kohlhof), her daughter, follows and finds herself in Stainbach, an idyllic village with a dark history/secret. What is it that so tormented her mother, and the people of Stainbach? What is the source of the nightmares she suffered? Who is the mysterious Trude that lives in the forest?
