COMA


Presented by DARKFIELD


Imagine the moment of waking up is actually the moment when your dream begins. In light of this new, and strange reality how can we save you from the unspeakable horrors that lurk in the dark recesses of your own mind? The only cure we offer is a placebo and a promise.

Please remember when you leave to take your body with you.
