I have a friend who has described this. I dont know about the "demonic voices" he says he's heard but the paralysis comes from a chemical in your body when you go to sleep.Basically when you sleep, your body releases this chemical so that when you dream, you aren't really running around, fighting crime, saving hot damsels in distress and what not. Through out the night, you go through sleep cycles and every few cycles will release this chemical, though each time it will be a little less until you wake up. As Snowleopard says, sometimes you wake up in this sleep cycle and because the chemical is still active in your body, you won't be able to move. And I suppose the voices come from your mind still in a dreamlike state.That's how my psychology teachers have (sort of) explained this process anyways, but I can see how demons and aliens are a believable alternative too.
