You wake up unable to move, barely able to breathe... you feel an oppressive weight on your chest... and you sense some evil presence in the room... The old hag strikes!

Welcome to the sixth episode of The Horror Express. On this program Jason goes toe to toe with The Conductor, our topic is Sleep Hag Syndrome and our story involves an invisible gray lady that knows how kill. If you still want more Jason and I take on your emails and tweets. So, if you have the courage press that play button and board the express train that tries to chill you a little and thrill you a little.

Sleep Hag Syndrome: The name of the phenomenon comes from the superstitious belief that a witch or old hag sits on the chest of its victims, rendering them immobile. Although that explanation isn't taken very seriously nowadays, the perplexing and often very frightening nature of the phenomenon leads many people to believe that there are supernatural forces at work.  Ghosts, Demons or Science? Jason and I discuss both sides of the issue.
