‘From the director of [●REC] and [●REC]2’ is a selling point.
Jaume Balagueró is an auteur in progress. His résumé1 shows his English language films to be lacking but his Spanish horror films are excellent. Sleep Tight 2011 is a Spanish film.
There is nothing new under the sun.
Every story is a reworking of a previous one. The art is in the telling. This year Hammer Films released The Resident 2011. It is the tale of a single female tenant who is stalked in her apartment. Sleep Tight tells the story from the stalker’s vantage point.
The Masters of Horror from the 70s have stopped making good movies – Carpenter, Craven, Romero. Horror needs new masters. Sleep Tight will not make Balagueró a star amongst fanboys but it will further his reputation amongst aficionados.
