Trouble Sleeping is a 2018 American-Canadian psychological thriller about a woman tormented by the memories of her late husband’s suicide. Her life is even further complicated by the arrival of her stepson, who will soon inherit all of his father’s wealth.

Written and directed by Robert Adetuyi (Turn It Up, You Got Served: Beat the World, Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack; Stand!). Produced by Robert Adetuyi, Linda Eskeland, Roger Fex and Greg McKay.

The movie stars Vanessa Angel, Billy Zane, Rick Otto, Ingrid Eskeland, Kale Clauson and Fred Stoller.



“By the time the final credits roll, the movie will leave audiences with a sense of satisfaction. While nothing is ever extraordinary, it does a lot of things well. Most importantly, it serves a purpose. It is fine background fluff that is easily digested. Its premise sounds a little silly – mostly because it is – but that is part of the charm of Trouble Sleeping.” AIPT

“Adetuyi’s direction is fine; stylish with flavors of neo-noir. The screenplay has some bumps, though, including, as mentioned earlier, being rather easy to figure out, and having some occasionally clunky dialogue. The ensemble cast all give serviceable-to-commendable performances, though their characters never give the actors much with which to stretch.” B&S About Movies
