Meant to be Hitchcockian -- the writer and director, Allen Wolf, more or less says so in his director's statement -- and maybe it is, if you think of it as, say, Hitchcock's senior project for film school.
All the labored explanations (and tedious psychology) that follow the bad behavior and bloodshed make for a serious buzzkill.
Writer-director Allen Wolf loads In My Sleep with so much psychosexual baggage you wish he just focused on one emotional affliction to propel this mediocre whodunit.
Aspires to the noble tradition of L.A. film noir, but boasts all the cerebral and aesthetic restraint of a West Hollywood dance club.
Little screen finesse to support Wolf's aspirations, leaving behind an ambitious but inept production that has difficulty maintaining chills, thrills, and, well, camera focus.
Hideous-looking, poorly acted, nonsensical and a waste of actor Tony Hale (Buster from "Arrested Development"), "In My Sleep" could turn you into a sleepmoviegoer.
For a while pulls levers of dramatic engagement competently if never rivetingly, but unravels into a labyrinthine tangle of soap-y contrivance and improbably centralized conflict.
The biggest problem with Allen Wolf's thriller is that there are so few characters, it's immediately clear what's going on; there's simply no one to suspect besides the obvious.
An overstuffed Lifetime movie, if that network for women ever made movies about nice guys who happen to be sex-addicted murder suspects with a sleep disorder.
- Becky: Sometimes in your dreams, you do what you really wish you could do in reality.
- Marcus: My sponsor says I use sex to escape.
- Marcus: I just need something to keep me from walking around at night.
- Dr. Schwarz: If you're a parasomniac, you'll need something strong.
