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.

This is one very evil man. What makes it so gripping is there are many in the world exactly like the main character. So as far as horrors go, Sleep Tight is far scarier than any typical horror no matter how gory. I felt no sympathy for his ailing mom, after all, she spawned the monster and had a hand in his upbringing. But another part of the movie was so heartbreaking, I had to take a 5 minute break from watching, just to deal with it.

This movie earned its 5 stars easily. I was not bored in the slightest.

This is a remarkably made film about a sociopathic doorman determined to ruin the lives of those around him for his own sick pleasure. It's short on graphic exploitative horror and long on disturbing tension. I'll admit, there were times I had trouble watching this movie. This guy is one sick twist!

The acting in this is phenomenal! Although it is in Spanish and subtitled, I didn't even notice after a while because it was so good. The villain in this movie is really, truly evil, and he is well played by a very good actor. I have watched a lot of movies, and many I forget, but not this one.

For most people, it's hard to fathom how anyone could delight in making others miserable. "Sleep Tight" is one of those films that will have you hoping to mergatroid that you'll never meet a monster like the one you're about to witness. Not a single shot is wasted in presenting such a disturbing plot for your insatiable voyeuristic enjoyment. This is the kind of thriller ripe with unnerving suspense that commands your full attention. What catapults this movie into purely unsettling territory is the simple naiveté of the protagonist. Can anyone be so trusting, so unsuspecting? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. In some ways, watching this may be a lesson to the viewer who thinks he/she knows somebody solely based on a short-time, or long-time acquaintance. A smile can conceal chasms of darkness.

If you enjoy this movie, I also recommend "The Making of a Lady", a British production set in the Victorian era. The plot is overly contrived (in the best fictional way, of course), yet equally entertaining.

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.

In terms of creative story telling, acting, cinematography, dialogue this rates five stars for me.
Story, as viewers probably already have read, centers on a intelligent but highly disturbed condo complex doorman, fixer-upper, greeter, what ever task dwellers ask of him. He lives alone in the basement, has had problems keeping similar jobs in the past and has some serious anger self-esteem issues. Also has a semi-aware yet comatose hospitalized mom with whom he has mommy issues with and in whom he confides his evil intentions just to torment her and be the vehicle by which the audience learns his true nature. But, three stars for too many holes in the story such as his background with his mom; how he became so creepy; how he was able to pull so much off, so many times, without being caught, especially when the police fail with what little they know about forensics in solving a death in the building and other investigations; finally, the ending which was clever but not believable.
Summation - four stars.

What a cut-throat film that leaves you gasping for more. For starters the story is unique and the direction is complete so there's no loose ends and you won't think that this is not possible. This film has plenty of surprises and it was for my wife and I - a really tense atmospheric and overall gripping thriller.
