Short Film Of The Day: The Nightmares Within Nightmares of ‘Halbschlaf’

Why Watch? Compelling camera work, tension ringing the doorbell at all hours of the night, and a chilling reality make this a fun/terrifying little flick.

Ben (Nils Althaus) and Nina (Nina Buhlmann) joyously return home from a night of drinking only to continue the hard Tequila-filled work in their apartment. After falling asleep, Ben keeps falling into nightmares and reality becomes hard to grasp. By the way, “halbschlaf” means “a light sleep” in German. Sweet dreams.

What will it cost? Only 7 minutes.
