Sleep Tight (2011)

Directed by: Jaume Balagueró
Country: Spain

Plot: You wake day after day to the comfort and security of your home. But how safe is it really?
Review: Spanish director Jaume Balagueró (“Rec” and “Rec 2”), continues his work in horror genre with this new feature film. “Sleep Tight” is not a perfect movie but as a thriller, it gathers the essential material to continue pleasing the fans. It tells the story of a man who only finds happiness when taking off the smile from other people’s faces. Sounds a bit odd but to tell the truth, even with some flaws, the plot deserves consideration. I may warn you that there’s nothing supernatural here. What shows is the evil itself represented through a human being. It’s nightmarish to think that people like these do exist.
Relevant awards: Best director, film and screenplay (Gaudí Awards, Spain).
