An instant must see for fans of the horror and thriller genres.

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 ...

February 18, 2013
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.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Brian Orndorf

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

AV Club
October 25, 2012
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.

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