His situation only gets worse when Marcus wakes up covered in blood with a knife at his side. Then, the wife of his best friend is found dead, stabbed to death. Marcus is scared to put together the pieces - could he have murdered her in his sleep to hide a dark secret between them?
A series of mysterious phone calls leads Marcus to believe that someone else is watching him. Marcus begins investigating his own nocturnal activities, following clues and trying to figure out what happens after he goes to sleep at night. His journey to discover the truth ends in a shocking discovery. --© Official Site … More

Critic Reviews for In My Sleep
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.
Did a hunky LA massage ther apist kill someone in their sleep? Perhaps the biggest problem with Allen Wolf's drowsy thriller In My Sleep is managing to stay awake long enough to find out.
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.
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.
