More Scary Movies Advocate To Don’t Fall Asleep

Last week, I mentioned that the promotional logo of the neo-A Nightmare on Elm Street was “Don’t Fall Asleep.” Last night, and I watched  The Haunting in Connecticut and Paranormal Activity, and again, the underlying message was : 1) Don’t Fall Asleep and/or 2) if sleep pressure is too much, Don’t Sleep Walk. Even if all three movies support America’s number one medical problem, sleep deprivation, at least Paranormal Activity showed that sleep walking coincides with deep sleep and not REM sleep, as most commonly thought; Katie’s sleep walking commenced roughly two hours after bedtime when she was most likely to be in slow, deep sleep, which dominates the first third of a 7-8 hour sleeping episode. I highly doubt that sleep consultants were hired though, given the movie’s poor, undergraduate grainy quality.
