As the days wear onward, James' anxieties and agoraphobia grows worse. However, as he attempts to adjust to this sometimes dehabilitating illness, what was once invisible and only presentated as just a "feeling," becomes more real than any nightmare he could ever recount. As his reality is slowly consumed, he must discern between what is reality before he loses himself to the "Mist."
A Note from the Director:
Mental illness is nothing new, however, it is something that is evolving. There are a number of films out there that may cover mental illness such as stories of schizophrenia, PTSD, Depression, and stories of substance abuse and druge abuse. However, there aren't many, if any stories about anxiety. There aren't any stories about sleep paralysis out there. There is a lot of stigma and misunderstanding about what mental illness is and how it affects an individual. Many people can't really relate to what mental illness is unless they personally experience it or have someone in their lives they are close to that experiences it. They only seem to see the outside of that. As a result, people that suffer from mental illness are in many cases left to fight their battles alone; not because they choose to, but because the people they'd usually rely on, don't fully understad what the world is like from their eyes. That inspired me to write this story and a previous story concerning mental illness... not about the usual stereotypical topics/illnesses such as schizophrenia, or suicides caused by depression. I wanted to go beyond describing it from the viewpoint of a character that doesn't have mental illness; I wanted to give a viseral experience of what having anxiety is like -- what experiecing sleep paralysis. These afflictions are nothing short of uncomfortable, creepy, and sometimes even terrifying for those that are experiecing it. THat's what I hope to give you the experience of in this movie, giving you an experience you won't soon forget.
