“Plenty of disturbing twists and turns lie in wait thanks to a sneaky (and darkly funny) script by Alberto Marini (Romasanta) and controlled, impressive direction by Spain’s current reigning maestro of horror, Jaume Balagueró.” Mondo Digital

‘A complex, gripping, and in the end unpredictable, thriller that manages, in a genre almost defined by cliché, to shock and surprise, Sleep Tight is yet another sure-fire hit from Jaume Balagueró, proving that Hitchcock’s spirit is still alive and kicking in European cinema.’ Blogomatic 3000
