Sleep Tight

Sleep Tight

Balagueró creates scenes that are the definition of nerve-jangling, not necessarily because of the threat of extreme physical violence – though that's an always-present concern when you're dealing with a villain this cruel – but because it's dangling out at the edge of believability. Perhaps Balagueró crosses the line a time or two. But I savored every suspenseful moment that flew by, literally biting my nails, right up to the dreaded, though somewhat inevitable, time bomb of an ending. You may not be able to do what the title suggests after you see this movie.” (Twitchfilm.com)
