Sleepless is full-force Argento.
Gorgeous but overbaked "mama's boy" thriller from master Argento.
The entire exercise is a heartrending one, particularly for fans of the horror auteur who held hopes that Sleepless would return Argento to form.
The ending's actually pretty good -- it just takes too long in getting there.
Crime horror/thriller from Italian gore daady Dario Argento. A serial killer persumed dead appears to be alive and killing again but things don't add up as people saw the killer get shot in the head. Detectives on the case seem baffled so enter a retired old detective who can't help but get involved, along with the son of one of the killers victims. This starts brilliantly with an action sequence on a train, which has as much tension as any of the shitty hollywood blockbusters of today. There's also the grisly, almost exploitation style murders and gore on offer, a cool twist ending and the usual great soundtrack from Goblin.
For people unfamiliar with Argento, you can expect some dodgy acting and editing and the occassional questionable accent. But you can also expect great gore and some interesting twists and turns and direction along with some cool music.
Overall, Sleepless is a well crafted horror movie for horror movie fans.
It says written and directed by Dario Argento but he isn't capable of such boring garbage. Therefore, I can only assume there's another Dario Argento, his family was held at gunpoint, or he was having a bad day. Either way it's not good.
If you're a fan of Argento, then you'll enjoy Sleepless.
It is Argento doing what he does best. Stringing you along from one grizzly murder to another. There are several very nicely shot scenes here and lots of blood and gore.
Though the story as a whole seemed a bit "rehashed" and the ending, a bit predictable...I'm always willing to "hop in the car" and go for another wild ride with Mr. Argento.
A great return to the classic "Giallo" murder mystery horror style by Dario Argento! This film had strong plot and characters, with a compelling mystery. Victims were killed in inventive animal-themed ways, making it all very interesting.
The opening scene on the train had great suspense. All the elements of a good Giallo were present: red herrings, a black-gloved killer, an Italian setting, female nudity, a detective investigation, and gorey setpiece killings with a complex motive involved. The mystery kept me guessing until the end. I highly enjoyed this new effort by Argento.
