The latest fright flick from Jaume Balaguero, Sleep Tight, is on its way to DVD and Blu-ray, and as always you can count on us for the skinny on what to expect when it gets here. Read on for the latest.
From the Press Release
None of the residents of a sleek apartment building would ever suspect that the quiet man who opens the door for them every day has a deep, dark and deadly secret. And now the secret’s out as SLEEP TIGHT, featuring “one of the most charismatic villains in the recent cinema” (Fotogramas), comes to high-definition Blu-ray and DVD from Dark Sky Films on January 8, 2013.
Written by Alberto Marini (Films to Keep You Awake), SLEEP TIGHT is the latest film from the director of the Calista Flockhart horror movie Fragile and the modern thriller classics [Rec] and [Rec] 2.
Toiling silently among the residents of an everyday Barcelona apartment building, doorman Cesar (Luis Tosar; Even the Rain, Miami Vice) harbors a dark secret: His sole desire in life is to make others unhappy. When he sets his sights on Clara (Marta Etura; Cell 211, Dark Blue Almost Black), 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.
Director Balagueró 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.
Sleep Tight (Mientras Duermes) (review) was nominated for more than 20 awards in Spain and won six Gaudi Awards, including Best Director, Best Actor for Luis Tosar (praised as “appropriately clammy” by The New York Times’ Manohla Dargis) and Best Screenplay.
