One in ten participants of a newly released study were found to have had a confirmed near-death experience, or NDE. Researchers, led by Dr. Daniel Kondziella, used an online crowdsourcing platform to “investigate the prevalence of near-death experiences and self-reported REM sleep intrusions.”
The Nightmare is a new documentary that delves into the horrifying world of sleep paralysis, a strange phenomenon that leaves sufferers immobilized in their beds, awake but unable to move. They also, sometimes, experience terrifying hallucinations of demons and shadow people, among other things. While I’ve never experienced any of this myself, the trailer here is certainly unnerving.
