‘What happens when staying awake means your nightmare never ends’
The Soviet Sleep Experiment is a 2019 American horror film about Russian researchers’ keeping test patients awake for thirty days.

Directed by Barry Andersson (Relentless; The Lumber Baron; Edge of Insanity) from a screenplay written by actor Michael Patrick McCaffrey, the Mogo Media-Walk the Moon Media production stars Eva De Dominici (Cosmic Sin; Sangre blanca; You Shall Not Sleep), Rafal Zawierucha (Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood), Chris Kattan (American Nightmares; Sharknado 5: Global Swarming;  Santa’s Slay; House on Haunted Hill 1999) and Michael Villar (Psychopaths; Visions).

In the late 1940s, Russian researchers kept four test patients awake for thirty days using an experimental gas-based stimulant. The researchers were cut off from the world and asked to do a series of tests on the subjects.

What starts as a purely scientific study, quickly spirals out of control. As the experiment progresses, the subjects take matters into their own hands and test the concept of truth as a matter of life and death…

“All four actors portray the victims/subjects of The Soviet Sleep Experiment quite well and make for one bombastic showcase of horror and gore. They act opposite each other very well inside the isolated 1940s Soviet testing facility. The set design team who put together the chamber must also be commended as it is quite believable…” Flix Chatter

The Soviet Sleep Experiment premiered at the Twin Cities Film Fest on October 18th 2019.
