SYNOPSIS

Blunda ("close your eyes") is a short horror film about sleep terror; A professor in clinical neuroscience has finally detected the cause of the sleeping disorder, and the result turns out to be quite unpleasant.

DIRECTOR STATEMENT
I work as a full-time police officer, helping good people and hunting bad people. But I'm also a filmmaker. I write, direct and produce mostly horror films, which has been my passion since the age of 13.

I got the idea for Blunda from my twin brother Patrik (also part of the film crew) who has been troubled by sleeping terror since he was 6 or 7 years old and no doctor has ever been able to tell him why or from where the sleeping terror (thru panic attacks and vicious nightmares) comes from. Though the plot in Blunda gives you an explanation why some people have it and what's really causing it.

The film length is 9 minutes and I wanted it to have the feeling of an old gothic horror film in combination with an episode/intro of the X-files.
