‘Superbly made and brilliantly acted, Sleep Tight is a terrific Spanish chiller that is well worth seeking out. Highly recommended’ - Matthew Turner, View London.

‘It’s eminently watchable, more than a little chilling and a league and a half better than most of its kind’ - Derek Malcolm, Evening Standard.

It was reviews like these that convinced us that this Hitchcock-type suspense thriller should come to Keswick.

Director Jaume Balagueró has a thing about the apartment buildings in Barcelona; having directed two horror movies ( ‘[Rec]’ and ‘[Rec] 2’) about the same block, he now uses the same subject in a more psychological thriller. This time, the embittered concierge César Marcos (played brilliantly by Luis Tosar, ‘Even the Rain’, ‘Cell 211’) has it in for the world; he sets out to make the tenants as unhappy as he can. Along the way, he comes across Clara whose very cheerfulness makes her his number one victim.

‘The deliciously dark script keeps you guessing throughout as you never really know what Cesar is up to and are constantly marvel-ling at his continual close-shaves. To that end, Balaguero maintains a nail-bitingly tense atmosphere that keeps you constantly on the edge of your seat, though there's also a streak of jet-black humour running through the film that works well’ - Matthew Turner, View London
