Mara: Exclusive Clip from New Sleep Paralysis Horror Starring Olga Kurylenko

Bleeding Cool has received an exclusive clip from Mara, a new thriller about a woman trying to learn the truth about a creature that attacks you in your sleep — without becoming its next victim.

From a producer of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes this shock-filled descent into fear. After a man is seemingly strangled in his bed, criminal psychologist Kate Fuller (Olga Kurylenko) interviews the sole witness, the victim's eight-year-old daughter, Sophie. When asked to identify the killer, Sophie says, "Mara." As Kate digs into the case, she unearths a community of people who claim to be tormented by a shadowy menace, a centuries-old demon who kills her victims as they sleep.

Mara stars Olga Kurylenko (The Death of Stalin, Oblivion, Vampire Academy), Javier Botet (It, Slender Man, Insidious: The Last Key) and Mitch Eakins (Glory Road, Evil Bong). The film is the feature debut of director Clive Tonge and was written by Jonathan Frank (The Tournament).
