Don't Sleep

Synopsis: Shawn and Zach are young lovers who move into a guest house together on an estate owned by Mr. and Mrs. Marino. When bizarre events begin to occur with increasing danger, Zach slowly remembers a forgotten time in his childhood when he suffered from what appeared to be a severe and violent psychosis - memories erased by as series of electroconvulsive shock treatments administered by his psychiatrist. As the terrors surrounding their lives grow to deadly proportions and innocent people are slaughtered, Zach is forced to question his own sanity and fears for Shawn's safety. Once the threat of psychotic behavior turns into the possibility of demonic possession, Zach is confronted with a horrific reality he never could before have imagined

- Good morning.

I thought you had a rule...

No classes before noon.

Ah. No, I got a test today.

I got to hit the library

before it starts.

- Anything I can help you with?

- Oh, yeah?

How are you gonna help him?

What, are you gonna describe

to him what the inside

of a courtroom looks like?

You've been dragged

in one enough times.

That's real cute, Jo.

You're gonna give this kid

a bad impression about me.

- You know that?

- No. Not possible.

Hey, why don't you guys

come over for dinner tonight?

We got some fresh eggplant

from pop's garden.

I'll make some eggplant parm.

Yeah. Yeah, that'd be nice, Jo.

I, uh... I'll ask Shawn.

You know, I don't know

what she's doing after class,

but, uh, thanks.

I'll, uh...

I'll catch you guys later.

- Okay, good luck.

- Thanks, man.

Cute kids, huh?

It's nice having them around.

Yeah, it is.

No pants! Naked!

He says, you lost a tomato.

That was the craziest thing

I'd ever seen.

And the guy says,

"you got to go.

I'm gonna call the cops."

You know what, man?

Pop started the business

just after six weeks after

he and mom came over

from Palermo.

He barely spoke

a word of English.

Started with a little

produce stand downtown.

By the time he was done,

we owned eight markets

all over the county.

That must've taken real courage.

More worry than courage.

I was always worried

that I'd do good, you know,

so I can support my family.

Of course.

You always did that, pop.

There was always food

on the table.

Thank you, Vincent.


How did you two meet?

- What?

- I was down at the Lincoln...

I'm just gonna tell a story,

that's all.

I was down at

our Lincoln street store,

and I noticed

this beautiful woman

squeezing grapefruits.

Oh, wow.

- She was squeezing...

- Vince!

- This is stupid.
