DEAD SLEEP

Linda Blair, the woman who terrified millions with her possessed performance in "The Exorcist", changes character again in DEAD SLEEP. This time she plays the hero in a tale of dark and dastardly medical misdeeds.

Nurse Maggie Healey gets suspicious of the exclusive deep sedation treatment given to unwilling patients at a respected psychatric clinic. It seems to slowly kill them! And the electric-shocks the doctor keeps applying are not doing them any good either. Together with a patient she sets out to unmask the villain.

DEAD SLEEP is an exciting psycho-thriller that pushed all the right buttons, while being set firmly in the world of fiction. Nevertheless it raises very real questions in regard to psychiatry and modern medicine.
