Dreaming of turtles…

This is weird: I decide to check in with my hibernating night-terror blog to moderate some spammy trackbacks, and I find this draft entitled “Dreaming of turtles…” in the post list.

Night Terror by Gabriella Karin Jonsson

Night Terror from © Gabriella Karin Jonsson on Vimeo. Gabriellas vision is terrifying because it feels so familiar. I especially like the sound, and the real-yet-not feeling of the film.

ArthuriusRex Night Terror From Hell

I’ve had pavor for as long as I can remember, but I only learned that such a condition exists a few years ago. One of the first things I found when I started googling was this film on YouTube. This is very much like my own night terrors: I often use my blanket to protect […]
