Sleep Tight (Mientras Duermes) (2012) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
ummm...I would like to see this...NOW.Quote:
Just how much damage can you inflict on people without them even knowing about it? How creepily disturbing can you be while flying under the radar of everyone you are violating? Jaume Balagueró's new movie Sleep Tight does a great job in answering those questions.
Sleep Tight is a Spanish-language film from Balagueró who is best known for co-directing [REC] and [REC 2], and he delivers a whopper of a movie with this effort. It's the tale of Cesar, an apartment building concierge who finds himself at a spot in his life where he feels he has nothing to live for, nothing to motivate him, nothing to make him get out of bed in the morning. However, we soon find that Cesar has a few extra-curricular hobbies that seem to be fueling his interests.
During the first five minutes you'll find yourself staring at the screen going, "Wait a minute…I thought he…oh, what the ****?!" An early reveal into Cesar's exploits sets the stage for an invasive experience where we the audience become voyeurs peeping in on a devious plan of deception, intrusion and violation...
And if Balagueró hadn't toyed with us enough throughout Sleep Tight, he saves a big reveal for the very last scene. He delivers a massive 'Holy ****!' moment to send audience members away with one last shock. It's an excellent ending to a great film.
Sleep Tight is a very entertaining experience that is going to hit home for a lot of people. It shows us that locking our doors is not always going to keep the boogeyman out, and sometimes it's the monster that smiles at you that's the most dangerous. Filled with sub-stories that add color and even humor to the main tale, Sleep Tight is brilliantly put together and brings viewers on a tense ride following a man literally on the edge with nothing to lose. For fans of unique and disturbing films, this is a must see. Tosar is perfect and Balagueró weaves a slow-burning tale of violation that builds to an incredible climax. Well done.
Eli Roth showed Amazonian villagers Cannibal Holocaust, and they thought it was hilarious! | BoingBoing
In one of the most delightfully disturbing stories you will read today, director Eli Roth screened 1980's Cannibal Holocaust for 200 Amazonian villagers who had never seen a movie before. While Roth was scouting for locations for his own cannibal-themed movie, The Green Inferno, he found a remote area with "no electricity, no running water, nothing." As a courtesy, he wanted to give the people living there an idea of what he was going to be doing in their backyard, so he showed them Cannibal Holocaust, and "[t]he villagers thought it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen." So, there's your nervous, cannibalism-related giggle of the day, plus a bonus cannibal cop! (via Movieline)
