Reviewed in the United States on April 21, 2013
Being a fan of low-budget H.P. Lovecraft adaptations and a big fan of the films of Brett Piper, buying a copy of Dark Sleep was a no brainer. Dark Sleep is inspired by the short story "Dreams in the Witch House"; I stress the term "Inspired". Only a few of the elements of the original Lovecraft story are present in Piper's script. Not a problem for me, but a lot of Lovecraft fan boys tend to obsess on changes made to the original material. That said, all of the truly fun element of the original Lovecraft story remain: Brown Jenkin, Euclidian Geometry, and Surreal Dream Sequences. Piper's film follows a young writer who is recently divorced from her husband and is struggling to put her life back together in a new house. And if her life wasn't bad enough, the house she has just moved into has Brown Jenkin living in the walls, and a dimensional portal in the basement.
