Casting Lead Roles for Student Film Project in Chicago

About The Film

The student film revolves around the strange story of two young men. Claude and Irwin are the ones in need, in desperate need of help to combat the weird monsters taking over them. They have hallucinations and those are similar. They have been experience sleep paralysis and that would take them to places they did not know existed. These encounters are not pleasant at all and the coincidence that both of them are experiencing exactly the same thing makes them wonder if there are some deadly forces working behind this.
