Direct To DVD "ghost movie" is a lot of fun!
24 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

OK, I got this movie in a box set containing 5 or so other direct-to-DVD movies and one theatrical film--it was under $6. The Dead Sleep is one of the last ones I'm viewing and it was definitely a cinematic treat for intellectual horror buffs (there's very little violence in the film) and fans of "The 6th Sense" and other such movies which rely far more on clever plotting and skilled ensemble acting to make their points than on standard horror movie plotting. The leads, especially the bored, somewhat selfish and introspective husband all do top-notch thesping and the 2nd Time Around-style plot is played out in straight-faced compelling style. Photography and editing all above-par for a non-theatrical. Check it out.
