Storyline

Shawn and Zach are young lovers who move into a guest house together on an estate owned by Mr. and Mrs. Marino. When bizarre events begin to occur with increasing danger, Zach slowly remembers a forgotten time in his childhood when he suffered from what appeared to be a severe and violent psychosis - memories erased by as series of electroconvulsive shock treatments administered by his psychiatrist. As the terrors surrounding their lives grow to deadly proportions and innocent people are slaughtered, Zach is forced to question his own sanity and fears for Shawn's safety. Once the threat of psychotic behavior turns into the possibility of demonic possession, Zach is confronted with a horrific reality he never could before have imagined Written by MiNDS i CiNEMA

Don't Sleep: Not so much a swing and a miss but a swing a miss and a faceplant in dog poop
13 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

By the end of Don't Sleep I felt bad, the ending was so interesting that I wished that I had enjoyed the film. But I didn't, I simply couldn't.

Starring Cary Elwes (Princess Bride, Saw, Top Gun) and Drea De Matteo (Joey, The Sopranos) but both as side characters this supernatural thriller staggers along at a dreadful pace from start to finish.

The story a mess, the creation abysmal and yet there was something there something frustratingly beneath the surface but unable to break free.

In the hands of a decent writer this could have been something quite watchable but Don't Sleep is far from that in its present form.

The Good:

Well the ending was certainly interesting

Cary Elwes

The Bad:

Lame/dull leads

Dreadful story

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I learnt that we had a backup pack of ibuprofen at the back of our cupboard for the headache this 95 minute embarrassment gave me
