I 've seen "REC" some months ago and I just wasn't sure... I mean, how can you tell if there is a visionary director or some random guy who just got lucky? REC wasn't so demanding by concept and it all worked out fine.
So I had to check another one by and this time I found out that Jaume Balagueró really is a visionary director plus ...I just got lucky! Because Sleep Tight was a real treat for this messed up part of my mind (we all have this, no? It's just me? Whatever...).
Yes, it is a thriller all right, but not the horror-jump scare kind of thriller. The horror element here is actually a poison more than just a scare. It will slowly get into you and when this film is done with you it will extract a portion of happiness out of you for the pleasure of César.
César is the main character and he is suffering from pathological unhappiness. He have an urge to kill himself every single day but his survival instinct driving him to find a reason not to. But what can you do to feel better in this absolute unhappiness especially since you realize that you are just not capable of happiness? Well, misery loves company. And the only way is to make the others unhappy too.
That's the whole story actually, but the way this story unfolds itself before our unsuspected eyes is masterful. I was stand up alone clapping my hands in the first twenty minutes. I was on the edge ever after and before the very end I was filled with sympathy AND repulsion for the same character, soaked into despair of what a man can do.
