A Supercut of Movie Characters Abruptly Waking From a Less Than Restful Sleep

Have you ever woken up with a sudden jolt just as you’ve started falling asleep? Or maybe it felt like you were falling? It could be that it felt like you were having a huge muscle spasm. You may have even felt a small shock sensation or a bouncing feeling. Or maybe you were just having a nightmare about a guy with knives for fingers that scared the crap out of you, causing you to promptly wake the hell up.

This cinematic supercut by London-based film enthusiast Roman Holiday, running at just under two minutes, shows 88 scenes of such “rude awakenings,” in films ranging from The Matrix to just about every Nightmare On Elm Street movie, with the unlikely but strangely appropriate Vivaldi composition Winter playing in the background. Remember to keep the Belsomra (suvorexant), Ambien (zolpidem), and Lunesta (eszopiclone) in close proximity.
