A high school horror hound attempts to stay focused on his studies as his nightmares begin bleeding into reality. Charlie subsists on a steady diet of fright flicks, and even runs his very own movie review website. But lately his love of the genre has been wrecking havoc on his GPA. Summer classes start tomorrow, providing Charlie with one last change to indulge in an epic horror bender that stretches deep into the wee hours of the night. The following day in class, however, Charlie's sleeplessness catches up with him and he begins to nod off at his desk. Every time Charlie's eyes close, the nightmares take hold. Each sleep-deprived vision is more vivid than the last, and the deeper Charlie drifts into fantasy the further his grip on sanity slips. Confronted by a relentless wave of nightmare threats ranging from slashers to vampires to Nazis and satanic cults, the increasingly disoriented student gradually loses the ability to discern whether he is awake or asleep. Will Charlie summon the fortitude to survive his first day of summer school, or will his love of shock cinema prove too much for his fragile system to handle.
