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

"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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
