Jesse Matthew Bernstein,
In "Parasomnia," a stylish horror/thriller from director William Malone ("House on Haunted Hill," "Masters of Horror,") Laura Baxter is a young woman, literally a "sleeping beauty," who suffers from a medical condition called "parasomnia." A childhood accident victim, she is actually sleeping her life away, awakening briefly on rare occasions. Art student Danny Sloan falls in love with her, unaware that her hospital neighbor, a terrifying mass murderer and mesmerist named Byron Volpe has other, more sinister plans. Sloan helps Laura escape from her hospital prison only to discover that Volpe is about to enter her dreams. Written by
An odd quirky film that takes horror a GREAT new direction.
I just saw this at Screamfest LA at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. I wasn't sure if this was going to be good or not from what I'd heard. I just went in and let the film wash over me. Three days later, I still can't shake it. This may be one of the best film experiences I've had in years. Yes, it's got the usual things that you'd expect out of a horror movie... gruesome murders, naked chicks, insane maniacs... but it also has a great plot, twitchy characters and the weirdest bunch of robots or clockwork men or whatever the hell they are, I've ever seen. The cast was uniformly good. Standout performances by Timothy Bottoms and Jefrrey Combs. The two leads were excellent. My friend thought the movie took a while to get going (though I liked it as is). We both felt the same about the ending. I'm not going to tell you too much about it except to say the last 30 minutes or so of this film left me stunned. Awesome ending!!! Not that this is a perfect film.... it's not, but it's damn close. I have to see this again. Did I dream this movie?
