Storyline

Enigmatically silent, and driven by love, the man known as Resnik was imprisoned for butchering another man and kidnapping the young girl at the heart of his obsession, Kelly. For the safety of his fellow inmates, Resnik was only ever allowed to wake, eat and exercise alone, after dark, he learned to like it. Now having escaped during a midnight transfer, Resnik is headed back to Moonlight Bay, and Detectives Raynor and Molloy have only 12 hours to stop him before the sun goes down, and the carnage begins, again.

An intriguing story, but fails to get the job done.
14 October 2012 | by (Lancaster, England) – See all my reviews

Sleeper is your traditional prison escapee style horror film, the prisoner played fantastically by current part-time wrestler Raven (Scott Levy) who is portrayed originally as a deranged murderer with only a thirst for blood without explanation. What sets this film above the standard gore-filled horror fests is that they implement some form of a story between the killing. History between Resnik (Raven) and Kelly (the main girl) is alluded to but not substantially capitalized on until they very end of the film. The plot as you'd expect it gets turned on its head, and the portrayal of multiple characters in the film will be reversed. It beats the commonly acclaimed horror films such as The Hills have Eyes in terms of storyline and plot development.

What lets this film down is three things. Firstly, the non-important characters who effectively play bowling pins for Resnik to decimate aren't adequately characterized much further than being arrogant teenagers and this makes it hard to get emotionally involved when their demise is potentially due. Whilst the storyline does somewhat justify this attitude, it would have been more gripping to have been swerved, much like many wrestling stories have ended being successful (ironically). Secondly, the story isn't adequately ended. Whilst a plot forms, it doesn't close nor does it end in a way which is sufficiently ambiguous for the audience to try and draw multiple conclusions from. Instead, it left me scratching my head and wondering why certain things had happened, knowing I had little evidence to come up with any real theory. Finally, the inability of Resnik to talk at all in the film hurt his character as much as it helped it, as I feel if given the chance we could have seen perhaps a warped, intelligent side to this very one dimensional murderer we see in many similar films.

In conclusion, I would recommend Sleeper for those of us who want to see Raven in an acting role not too similar to his wrestling role as a sociopath and someone who cares little of the pain he inflicts on those around him.
