Toiling silently amongst the residents of an everyday Barcelona apartment building, doorman Cesar (Luis Tosar) harbors a dark secret: his sole desire in life is to make others unhappy. When he sets his sights on Clara (Marta Clara), one of his building's cheeriest residents, his sick need blossoms into a full-fledged obsession. Embarking on a series of private and physical violations against Clara, Cesar becomes determined to ruin her life by any means. (c) Official Site

Unsettling tale of obsession benefits from black-comic undercurrents.

"Sleep Tight" makes a sounder case for nocturnal Webcams than the "Paranormal Activity" franchise ever could.

A nifty little thriller that dances on the boundary between plausible and preposterous.

Mr. Balagueró is so overtaken by his villain that he becomes like César, displaying an eagerness to play the role of tormentor, which kills both the movie's pleasure and its flickering political subtext.

This is a crime story with little to no interest in the who or the why, but only the what and the how. It's a reverse-procedural, tracking not the solution of a crime, but all of its awful particulars.

Here is a unique fright flick that sets out to terrify and does it to capacity, eschewing fangs and claws to find chills and thrills in the unquenchable evil of human madness.

It's a stalker movie. But some ingenious variations, shrewd direction, and a killer lead performance render it fresh and absolutely entertaining.

An unrelievedly nightmarish film.

Even though the central character is somewhat undefined, this film is a thorough creep-out, playing on our vulnerabilities while making the villain the most sympathetic person on-screen.

Wildly malevolent, but shrewdly executed and creepily watchable.

It's eminently watchable, more than a little chilling and a league and a half better than most of its kind.

Impressively directed and superbly written, this is a thoroughly gripping and deeply disturbing Spanish chiller with a terrific central performance from Luis Tosar. It's also, for my money, one of the best films of the year.

Luis Tosar's performance is central to the success of Sleep Tight, a taut psychological thriller set in an upmarket apartment block.

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

While Sleep Tight is more a dark thriller than a straight horror it inhabits some pretty creepy, twisted territory ...

Clever suspense cinema with a gleam in its eye and ice in its heart from an emergent Spanish A-lister. Hitchcock himself would be proud, and maybe shocked.

Sleep Tight threatens to be a real snooze until the film's electric second half jolts us awake.

"Sleep Tight" is well-directed by Spain's Jaume Balaguero, the guy who gave horror fans "[REC]" and "[REC] 2." It's definitely worth a rental.

Lacks transparent thrills, but its dedication to psychological disease and escalating panic results in a tremendously satisfying feature, low-key but splendidly sinister.

Quite well-made and well-acted... a rock-solid uncomfortable thriller.

Audience Reviews for Sleep Tight

Having majority liked the movie, the director's efforts seems to have gone in vain. He failed in torturing most of the audience & making them unhappy. I'd have been one of the victims had he paced it too slow, but given the case, I found it passable.

Excellent thriller. Very tense and a great story. The performance of the main character is nothing short of brilliant.

Any of you read my review on The Tenant? This movie delivered what that movie didn't. I like it when a movie doesn't show you everything and surprises you.

From beginning to end with nearly no let-up, "Sleep Tight" is squirm-inducing. The entire cast is terrific in their roles however, Luis Tosar plays his repulsive, disgusting, character to perfection. I seriously wanted to take a shower after spending an hour and a half following him around. Some minor issues include the "ridiculous" police-work and the attempt to provoke us to care for the main character. While there are some scenes that produce tension with our protagonist; I absolutely was "not" rooting for him to escape detection. This character as well as being very creepy, is literally one of the biggest assholes ever; the ending, while somewhat predictable, was the icing on the cake.
