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.
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).
Don't waste your time on this sappy thing. Winchester says his lines as though he can't stand being there at all. Why he agreed to star in something that utterly stifles all his talents was the only thing mysterious to me about this supposed mystery film. It's a flop in every way possible, and that's being generous. The reason I didn't give it the one star it really deserves is because I respect Phillip Winchester. If you want to see what he can do, avoid this disaster and go spend your time with the aforementioned shows.
This is a bit more than your run-of-the-mill thriller. It left me guessing as to what was going on and how different characters were involved. It also dealt with a behaviour of which I knew very little - that of a parasomniac. In this case, the lead character Marcus, is a parasomniac and is anguished when he realizes how he behaves while asleep. And then it escalates.
Enjoyed the suspense in this show, the kind that you don't often get in movies recently.
The acting was well done with the exception of the female detective. It felt like this actress was trying too hard, and the bit with the nuts was just that...nuts. The only thing it lent to the character was an even deeper lack of believability
I also didn't understand the point of the father. That part just felt like filler. The movie would have worked without it.
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.Read more ›

Lacey was again very good and she showed a different side to her acting career. She's good at showing human emotion in just about any way known to women.Published on March 23, 2014 by Gary L. Cotton
