The Curse of Sleeping Beauty

Synopsis: "The Curse of Sleeping Beauty" is an entirely new, dark vision of the classic Brothers Grimm adventure. Thomas Kaiser inherits an ancestral mansion that has been in his family for generations, only to learn that he has also inherited an ancient curse stemming back to the Crusades. Forced into his new role as "protector", the guardian appointed to keep the evil demons in the house at bay, Thomas must unravel the mystery of the house, while struggling to awaken the beautiful Briar Rose, held captive in a terrifying netherworld seen previously in his dreams.

So you, uh, left

the door open again.

Cash is on the counter.

You know, as much as I

love being your personal maid

and running all these

little errands for you,

you really need to get out

of this apartment, buddy.

This is...

It's gettin' ridiculous.

I just have a couple more

paintings to finish up.

But thank you for your help.

No problem.

Hey, I'm goin'

over to McGowan's.

Craig's got his

birthday happening.

You should come with.

I don't like karaoke.

It's not karaoke.

It's drunk girls singing.

So it's drunk girl-araoke,

which is awesome.

Everybody loves

drunk girl-araoke.

You should come, get

out of your apartment.

- It smells like a shoe.

- Oh.

No, I'm fine.

Okay.

Sleep paralysis.

It's happening

every morning now?

Only when I have the dream.

But it's happened

two nights in a row.

It hasn't happened that

close together before.

The Sleeping Beauty dream?

It always ends the same way.

I'm about to kiss her,

then get distracted by

some creepy-looking house

and that's it.

Are they connected, the sleep

paralysis and the dream?

What do you think?

I did some reading

on sleep paralysis

and it's supposedly your

body not moving smoothly

through the stages of sleep.

And I also read that

in the Dark Ages

people thought the paralysis

was a demon or evil spirit

sitting on your chest.

You mentioned that I'm your

third therapist in three years.

So you already know what I'm

gonna say about the dream.

Your subconscious created

this perfect, passive woman

with whom you are

unable to connect.

Can you see the parallels here

with your isolation with people?

That is the distraction keeping

you from your real life.

Your lack of human interaction

is what makes these sessions

the wrong kind of necessity.

You're looking for an

answer you already know.

You just won't accept.

What you need is to put

yourself out there again.

Be vulnerable. Only then do

I think this dream will fade

and you won't depend

on this so much.

Hello?

Is this Thomas Kaiser?

- Yes. Who is this?

- Hi, this is Katherine

from the law office of

Jeff Jennings and Associates.

Can you come down to

claim your inheritance?

What?

Uh-huh.

Yep.

Yeah.

Talk to you later, bye.

Where is this?

The address is at the top.

- It's like three hours from here.

- You know what?

I really know just

about as much as you do.

This firm is just the

executor of the property.

Wait. You said Clive Kaiser died

and left this property to me?

Yes. It says here that

you are the beneficiary.

I had to dig in the archives

downstairs for this.

It looks like the property's been

in your family for generations.

It doesn't make any sense.

I've never met my uncle...

Okay, you're breaking my heart.

This came in a few days ago.

It's from your uncle Clive

and the envelope said

that it should go to you

along with the deed.

How much is the property worth?

It's never been sold,

so there's no reference.

You'll have to get it appraised. We

can help you with that, for a fee.

But you know what? You might want to go

out there and check it out on your own.

- You okay?

- How did he die?

Oh, it says here

that his body was found

in the river by the property.

It was ruled suicide.

Thanks.

I'll have a real estate

associate meet you out there.

'Cause I am not drivin'

out to that place.

That was stimulating.

Thomas, I wish we had a chance

to get to know each other.

Your grandmother, my

mother, did her best

to make sure that

we had never met.

She was not without her reasons.

The men in our family carry

with us something terrible.
