Refreshing to see someone still can and does makes horror movies like this
3 August 2001 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Yes, it is not the best giallo Argento made (that was PROFONDO ROSSO), but, hey, it is unfair to expect someone to make masterpieces all the time, and while SLEEPLESS is not a masterpiece, it is much better than his own disastrous TRAUMA or virtually all of American serial killer movies made in the past ten years or so. The movie does not offer anything original, but it re-plays all the conventions of the giallo tradition (which Argento himself had perfected) in the perfect way of an expert. It's great that Argento and Goblin have re-united after two decades and the music score is one of the greatest assets of the movie. It's not just a feeling of nostalghia satisfied to enjoy hearing a Goblin track, it is really good and enhances the movie. The opening murder scene in the train is probably the best part of the movie and it is the best-shot, best-edited and best-scored murder scenes put on film in the recent years. Argento provides one trademark visual touch in the amazing 'carpet scene' as the camera menacingly and voyeuristicly prowls on a carpet leading to a murder. Sergio Stivalletti's gore sf are state-of-the-art and some of the murders are very gory and grotesque and, as one other reviewer pointed out, are in Fulci territory. Max von Sydow is puts great sensitivity and care to his role. Before watching the movie, I had feared he might have put forward a disinterested stance, far from it. 8/10
