Movie Info

Barely dressed, Marcus wakes up in the middle of a cemetery. He has no idea how he got there. But this is not the first time this has happened. In fact, lately when he wakes up, Marcus has to ask himself: Where was I last night? Who was I with?

Marcus suffers from parasomnia, a rare form of sleep disorder which causes him to do things in his sleep, which he cannot remember the next day.

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 Sitemore

Zzzzzzzz.

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.

I liked the idea of the movie, but the acting and film quality were terrible.
