When you're writing a paper and the deadline is fast approaching, there's nothing scarier than a blank screen staring back at you, and that's exactly what a student pulling an all-nighter in the library discovers (along with some other spooky surprises) when they wake up from a nap in Abie Sidell's new horror film Cram. With Cram premiering this Friday, October 22nd at the Austin Film Festival, we've been provided with an exclusive clip to share with Daily Dead readers!

Written and directed by Abie Sidell, Cram stars John Dimino, Brandon E. Burton, Rolando Chusan, and Carolina Do.

Synopsis: "We all do what we gotta do to pass – except Marc. Desperate to finish his final final paper, he struggles to cram all night in the library.

After dozing off, Marc awakens to discover that his paper has vanished! Desperate for answers and a way out of this nightmare, Marc is drawn deeper into the mysterious and enchanting stacks. Alone in the library (or so he thinks), Marc is easily frightened and considers giving up.

But the library has other plans for him...."
