Critic Reviews for Sleep Tight

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (8)

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.

Oct 26, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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

Oct 25, 2012 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 25, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5

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.

Audience Reviews for Sleep Tight


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.

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.
