Editorial Reviews

Toiling silently amongst the residents of an everyday Barcelona apartment building, doorman Cesar (Luis Tosar) harbors a dark secret: his sole desire in life is to make others unhappy. When he sets his sights on Clara (Marta Clara), one of his building s cheeriest residents, his sick need blossoms into a full-fledged obsession. Embarking on a series of private and physical violations against Clara, Cesar becomes determined to ruin her life by any means necessary. Becoming the boogeyman hiding under the bed and bringing her nightmares to life, his fascination with torment soon crosses the line into lunacy and his thirst for others sadness soon becomes manically unquenchable.
 
Acclaimed Spanish director Jaume Balagueró, co-creator of [REC] and [REC] ², delves into the perverse fantasies of a man on the brink, and delivers an unnerving tale of obsession and torment that delivers nonstop thrills right up to its shocking conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterful Spanish Supense Thriller January 11, 2013
By Kbowton
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Sleep Tight is a foreign film i know most people haven't heard about unless you live in Spain of course, it barely got a release in America but now it's out on blu-ray and digital and is definitely a must watch. First thing though if you hate subtitles walk away because watching it with dubbed voices is criminal. Anyway the movie comes from the director of [REC] 1&2 and is his best film yet, sleep tight takes place almost exclusively inside a small apartment complex and tells the story of Caesar the complexes lobby and maintenance worker and his fascination with the tenant Clara and how she's always happy. I won't go any further with plot points as doing so will ruin it but the movie makes you think about how you trust someone yet that person can be just plain evil. The concept is very dark and surprisingly original and bolstered by fantastic performances, beautiful direction and writing with gorgeous cinematography and editing. A must rent or buy in my opinion. But fair warning this movie is done in a very intense Slow-Burn style so the movie moves at a slower pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight, taut thriller! December 30, 2012
By P.W
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie starts off ordinarily enough, and then sucks you right in! How anyone can be as despicable as the main character is beyond my imagination. I love the way they established the setting and the characters from the beginning. From then on it gets worse, with every scenario worse than the preceding one. The main character is relentless and I love the actor playing him. This is what thrillers are made of! I can't wait to purchase the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Psychopathy Unbound" June 4, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This is not a slasher film (in the traditional sense)) but certainly reveals a lot of physical, mental and sexual pain as inflicted by a middle aged misanthropic psychopath. The sadist, in this case, is an outwardly mild mannered concierge in a Spanish apartment building who vacillates between suicidal urges and drives to inflict humiliation and degradation on the unfortunate tenants and neighbors in his building. He is at his worse when other are happy, and most at peace when others despair. Even his own ailing mother doesn't escape his hatred. So, be prepared for a discomforting adventure that is well-acted and truly believable. English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Classic February 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Terrific psychological horror film. A story Patricia Highsmith might have been pleased to have thought of. Directed by Jaume Balagueró, who has already made three of my favourite horror films - REC, REC 2 and THE NAMELESS (the actor who plays the Dachau survivor in THE NAMELESS, a film adapted from the Ramsey Campbell novel of the same title, is in this too). It's a film that rubbed one of my raw nerves for about two thirds of the 90 minute duration and made me squirm. A compelling story of how exclusion, disappointment and obsession work in the mind. A quieter, lo-fi SNOWTOWN in some respects and has one of those great scripts that makes me wish it was based on a novel I could now read.

4.0 out of 5 stars MISERY LOVES COMPANY January 26, 2013
Format:DVD
Cesar (Luis Tosar) is the concierge/super for an apartment building. He seems like a normal helpful person, however under it all he is not a people person. At night he has chloroform sex with Clara, an unsuspecting tenant. He confesses his misdeeds to his mother, who is bed ridden, unable to speak, only cry. He is also being blackmailed by a young girl (Iris Almeida) who espies him coming out of Clara's room (Marta Etura).

The film is not overly graphic and goes easy on the "perv" factor. You are drawn into the film to see how far Cesar will go to make everyone miserable. It is a well done production, unlike so many "B" films in this genre.

The film lacks any real good "B" horror. At the same time it is a "B" movie subject. I would imagine the niche is narrow for a fan base in this slow moving tale.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief sex, brief nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing July 26, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Creepy but slow moving thriller about a seemingly convivial doorman at a high rise building who harbors a seething hatred for anyone who is happy, since he is unable to experience happiness himself. To reveal more would undermine the slow-burn narrative that reveals information at its own very leisurely pace--you don't even really know what the main character is up to until fairly far into the movie. This was relatively creepy but I liked it the least of any of writer/director Juame Balaguero's movies to date--it's simply much more slow and less scary than anything else he has made so far and the cat and mouse game between the main character and his victim is so completely one-sided that I found myself starting to lose interest after a while. This is apparently intended to be more cerebral than Balaguero's previous thrillers. The ending is certainly interesting to ponder after, but like much of the movie it doesn't have much impact while you're actually watching. Sleep Tight is only intermittantly suspenseful and the movie's single-minded focus on its psychotic main character becomes a bit numbing after a while. Even after the movie is over you end up knowing very little about him--he ends up being someone you don't want to ever cross paths with, but little more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spanish Thriller from the Co-director of "[REC]" January 14, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
After directing two POW thrillers "[REC]" and its sequel, a director team Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza took separate paths. While Paco Plaza went on to direct another sequel to the "[REC]" franchise alone, Jaume Balagueró chose to direct "Sleep Tight" ("Mientras duermes"), a thriller whose success with audiences may depend on how much they can suspend their disbelief.

"Sleep Tight" centers on César (Luis Tosar), a quiet Barcelona apartment building concierge with a secret. Without giving away much about the film's convoluted storyline, he is interested in one resident, ever-cheerful Clara (Marta Etura). Also, another resident seems to know something about his "secret."

As the story slowly unfolds, you will know more about César, who finds his meaning of life in something that most people would deem as unusual or unhealthy. Perhaps some viewers may find the central character César intriguing, while others notice in him an all-too-familiar narrative pattern, in which our protagonist greatly benefits from lucky coincidences and other supporting characters' incredibly stupid decisions.

It is true, as some critics point out, that the film is free from familiar thriller conventions, but Balagueró actually borrows its key ideas from other thrillers: one from Hitchcock and one from Almodóvar. Not that "Sleep Tight" is a rip-off, as it has a few unique aspects, especially its ending. Still, as far as characters go, Balagueró's are disappointingly flat, in spite of Luis Tosar's effective performance.

So is it worth watching? It depends. Maybe once. Not a bad thriller though with characters that we do not care much it fails to leave much impact.

This is more of a gothic character study than any kind of genre piece. It is quite dull and lacking in true suspense.
