Editorial Reviews

When Marcus wakes up with blood on his hands, he is startled to hear that a close friend has been found stabbed to death. Marcus struggles with parasomnia, a rare sleep disorder, and he wonders if he could have killed his friend while sleepwalking to hide a dark secret. The police close in as Marcus frantically investigates his own nocturnal activities, desperate to figure out what happens when he goes to sleep. His journey to uncover the truth leads him to a shocking discovery. Philip Winchester (Strike Back, Camelot), Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls, The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past), and Abigail Spencer (Mad Men, Cowboys & Aliens) star in this award-winning movie that The Hollywood Reporter hails as "a sexy, well-made thriller!"

In My Sleep is a fast paced, gripping, edge of your seat thriller that will keep you guessing right up to the very end! The story plays out in an unpredictable and wonderfully spooky, which will keep you on your toes. In many ways this movie reminded me of a new age thriller that is reminiscent of the classics from master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. Truly a great new film from Director/Writer Allen Wolf that I highly recommend for all viewers!

Writer/director Allen Wolf has hit a home run with this indie motion picture in the tradition of Hitchcock. From the opening scene, the viewer is kept guessing with the main character, Marcus, who embarks on a mission to try to discover whether he committed murder and to search within whether he has the capacity for such an act. The plot is highly suspenseful and entertaining, but in the end the movie leaves the viewer thinking about the deep issues that Marcus explored within himself.

The screenplay is tightly written and the movie features strong performances by lead actors Philip Winchester, Lacey Chabert, and Abigail Spencer. Allen Wolf mixes superb humor into this thriller, keeping the audience entertained throughout. "In My Sleep" is truly a unique movie that you will not forget.

I rarely rave about movies, but without exaggeration it's truly one of the best movies I've seen in a very long time.

The movie is a well-written edge-of-your-seat thriller, interlaced with incredible suspense, Hitchcockian elements, a fantastic plot, great intensity, wonderful musical score, and even humor along the way.

If you like movies like Memento and the Usual Suspects, and appreciate movies with twists and turns that keep you guessing the entire time, you'll love this movie. After I saw this movie, I couldn't stop talking or thinking about it. It's one of those movies that stays in your mind and makes you think through it and ask questions about it for several days. (And one that you'll want to see again once you figure everything out).

IN MY SLEEP is one of those rare movies that make you realize why indies still have the edge over their studio counterparts. This film has a wonderfully complex storyline, harkening back to the golden age of Alfred Hitchcock. It is a wonderful puzzle box that becomes move fun with each layer that is unraveled. These days with so many films playing it safe with cookie-cutter plots, this film gleefully "breaks the rules" with a wholly original plot that will surprise you as you try to put all of the pieces together.

In this film, the protagonist must follow the clues and unravel the mystery as to who murdered one of his best friends, even though the signs point to the bizarre conclusion that he may have killed her while he was sleepwalking.

The twists and turns will keep you guessing. What a fun film. I wholeheartedly recommend this indie-gem to all fans of thrillers and murder mysteries alike!

Can you imagine going to bed and waking up with blood on your hands? Not knowing what you've done the night before? In My Sleep asks those questions and many more equally frightening ones, keeping you in suspense throughout, until the last satisfying and surprising revelation. There are even a few chuckles along the way! Worth the wait!

I've been watching too many disappointing films lately so it's good to see a quality one crop up from time to time.

In My Sleep is a murder/mystery with a twist- the man (played by Philip Winchester) apparently committing the murders does so while sleepwalking. However the question running through 80% of the movie is this- is he *really* killing people in his sleep, or is he being set up using several carefully placed tricks? He wakes up surrounded by unxplainable blood spots that don't belong to him but, it's definitely somebody's blood. Does that mean he's guilty? Does that mean he's a murderer? This makes for a compelling story.

What makes the story even MORE interesting is that the person murdered just happens to be his brothers wife after Philip and said wife actually have an affair together. Philip wakes up in the morning with no recollection of the events that occurred over the night. While this may sound like a typical guy thing ("I don't remember sleeping with her!") there's more do it than that, haha. Yes, *very* good idea for a storyline! Amazingly, Philip being responsible for the murder is something he brings on himself due to nobody believing the severity of his sleepwalking issues.

Throughout the film Philip's character constantly tries to figure out what actually happened that fateful night and put the clues together involving several women he meets (a photographer played by Lacey Chabert, a woman he meets during special meetings with a gathering of people (Abigail Spencer) and his mother (Beth Grant) to name a few). Other big name actors and actresses such as Tony Hale from Arrested Development and Kirsten Vangsness from Criminal Minds aren't really utilized much, which is a shame.

Allen Wolf makes a fairly impressive writing/directing debut with this tense little thriller. Though there are many aspects of the film that seem like it is a very low budget, quickly produced little grade B movie, the presence of Philip Winchester makes it work. Not only is this actor first class eye candy, he holds a character well and makes us believe a rather implausible plot.

Marcus (Philip Winchester) suffers from parasomnia (a category of sleep disorders that involves abnormal and unnatural movements, behaviors, emotions, perceptions, and dreams that occur while falling asleep, sleeping, between sleep stages, or during arousal from sleep. Most parasomnias are dissociated sleep states which are partial arousals during the transitions between wakefulness and NREM sleep, or wakefulness and REM sleep). He awakens with blood stained hands and when he hears that a close friend Ann (Kelly Overton) has been murdered he fears the worst. His best friend tries to be supportive but the police disrupt Marcus' own investigation of his behavior patterns when they come to arrest him for the murder. How the story ends is wracked with suspense and keeps the audience in suspense to the last minute.

The supporting cast is spotty, but Lacey Chabert, Abigail Spencer and even Kirsten Vangsness from The Mentalist television series give solid support. This is not a great movie but it is a chance to watch Philip Winchester grow beyond his previous roles and become a solid leading man. Grady Harp, March 12
