Sleep Tight (Mientras Duermes) (15)

Horror, Thriller

You wake day after day to the comfort and security of your home. But how safe is it really?

The critical consensus

Balagueró balances the suspense almost perfectly but adds enough humanity to all his characters to make this a sad tragic thriller that will get under your skin and keep you hooked until the final cruel dénouement.

****(*)Henry Northmore, The List, 22/02/2013

A creepy, neo-Hitchcock stalker drama, infused with uneasy twists and a slow-burning intensity. Check it out. Then check under your bed...

****(*)Simon Crook, Empire Online, 25/02/2013

Tosar continues to be a powerful on screen presence, disguising layers of darkness beneath an affable exterior.

***(*)(*)Becky Bartlett, The Skinny, 21/02/2013

Wildly malevolent, but shrewdly executed and creepily watchable.

***(*)(*)David Gritten, The Telegraph, 01/03/2013

Balagueró stretches suspense as taut as piano wire, tightening it by degrees, and adds a gratuitous twist of horror in the concierge's account of these barbarities to his voiceless, hospital-bound mother. The old dictum "Misery loves company" has seldom been given a more unsavoury or gripping illustration.

****(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 28/02/2013

A well-orchestrated, understated tale of terror that sustains suspense throughout.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 01/03/2013

You won't after seeing this master fully creepy suspense thriller.

Nicholas Barber, The Independent on Sunday, 03/03/2013

An unrelievedly nightmarish film.

Philip French, The Observer, 03/03/2013
