These Dark Sketches On Sleep Paralysis Hallucinations Will Make You Uneasy

This post is unsettling on multiple levels. And, the plight of those suffering from the condition is brilliantly captured.

People who have experienced sleep paralysis know how twisted and horrifying it can be. During such an episode a person is mentally conscious but they are unable to speak or talk. The worst part in some cases are the hallucinations that people experience initially. Trapped in a conscious dream-like state can be very scary and several artists have captured this tricky condition with perfection. You'd be surprised and spooked out after going through the different versions of sleep paralysis.
