Production

Allen Wolf wrote, directed and produced In My Sleep. The film entered post production in August 2008, after having resolved several technical glitches before moving into sound design, music scoring and visual effects.[7] Sound design was handled by Hollywood's Jonathan Miller, whose works include Independence Day, Saw, Narc, Trainspotting, The Hills Have Eyes Part II, and many others, while music scoring was completed by Conrad Pope, who also orchestrated Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Horton Hears a Who! and Julie & Julia and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and who recorded the score in Bulgaria and Los Angeles.[7] Ralph Winter was the Executive Producer. Alyssa Weisberg, who won an Emmy for casting Lost and also cast Star Trek (film) was the Casting Director.

On November 6, 2009, In My Sleep screened at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival where it won the Audience Choice Award.[8] The movie has sold to over seventy countries around the world and has been translated into German, French and Spanish.[9]

Plot

Marcus (played by Philip Winchester) wakes up in a cemetery with no memory of how he got there. He suffers from parasomnia, a sleep disorder which causes him to do things while asleep which he cannot remember, and so is plagued with questions: "Where was I last night? Who was I with?" Hoping to deal with his use of one-night-stands to escape his problems, Marcus joins a Sexaholics Anonymous support group, where SA sponsor Derek (Michael Badalucco) helps him work through his problems. His disorder takes a turn for the worse when he wakes up and finds himself covered in blood with a knife at his side and the police banging at his door. In a panic he hides the evidence and then learns from the police that Ann (Kelly Overton), wife of his best friend Justin (Tim Draxl), was found stabbed to death. Marcus is terrified to put together the pieces of how she might have been murdered. A series of mysterious phone calls make him believe that someone is watching him. Desperate to figure out what happens after he goes to sleep at night, he investigates his own nocturnal activities. His quest for the truth ends in a shocking revelation.[3][10]
