Egads. Here’s the trailer for Sleep Tight, directed by Spanish film maker Jaume Balaguero, best known for co-writing/directing one of my favorite horror movies of the last ten years, [Rec]. While Balaguero stumbled a bit with [Rec 2], he looks to be returning to some genuinely chilling and nerve-wrackingly scary material with Sleep Tight. The film is about an apartment complex doorman who can only achieve something close to happiness by making others suffer, and he silently, subtly takes it out on the residents of the building.
It’s creepy as fuck. Note to editors: watch this for how to make an effective trailer, please.
OK, sure, it looks like he recycled the set from the [Rec] films. But damn if that wasn’t an macabre and affecting little trailer. I’m officially interested.
