Dark Sky Films will release on Blu-ray Spanish director Jaume Balaguero's horror thriller Mientras duermes a.k.a Sleep Tight (2011), starring Luis Tosar, Marta Etura, and Alberto San Juan. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the country on January 8th.
Luis Tosar (The Limits of Control) is Cesar, an apartment building doorman who keeps very close tabs on the residents' private lives and whose only happiness comes from others' misery. One building resident in particular, the cheery, happy-go-lucky Clara (Marta Etura of The Impossible), makes his skin crawl. He becomes determined to do whatever it takes to wipe the smile off her face. Tense and disturbing, Sleep Tight has been nominated for more than 20 awards in Spain and won six Gaudi Awards, including Best Director for Jaume Balaguero, Best Actor for Luis Tosar and Best Screenplay.
Saw this in theatres last month. Fantastic movie. He has grown as a director and it's definitely a departure from the previous films he has made but still a great flick. Along the lines of Oldboy with the subject matter.
