While visiting his friend Billy in the rehabilitation center of a local psychiatric hospital, the arts student Danny Sloan decides to visit the serial killer Byron Volpe. Byron, a deranged hypnotizer, used his ability to control his victims. He was arrested, wearing a hood to cover his eyes, and is now in a cell in the end of the corridor. When he passes by the room of Laura Baxter, he becomes fascinated with her angelical beauty and discovers that she has Parasomnia (the Sleeping Beauty syndrome), sleeping most of the time and awaking briefly on a few moments only. Billy visits the girl in other occasions falling in love with her; when he finds that she will be transferred to serve as experiment in a clinic with bad reputation, he decides to abduct Laura and bring her to his apartment. However, Byron also loves Laura and controls her nightmares, and uses his power to bring her back to him in a trail of blood.

- Director William Malone funded the entire project himself.
Filmed on the same stage as 'House on Haunted Hill (1999)', another project William Malone directed.
Misunderstood by some, is the fact that this film is a not one of the big studio films that the director is noted for, but actually a personal project. Director William (House on Haunted Hill) Malone wrote this while he was working on his Masters of Horror episode "Fair-Haired Child". He was so taken with the idea that he decided to "just make it" rather than taking the usual studio route. He apparently broke the first rule of filmmaking which is "Never finance your own movies". He and one of his friends refinanced their houses to make it. Interestingly, there is another connection to his MOH episode in that one of the creatures in the film is an unused design from that show. Malone actually built the creature himself for the film. Also Malone's High School Garage Band "The Plagues" can be heard on the soundtrack for the movie along with other garage bands from the 60's.
