Storyline

Thorne Sleepyhead: follows DI Tom Thornes investigation into a mysterious serial killer. His first three victims ended up dead. His fourth was not so fortunate. Alison Willetts is unlucky to be alive. She has survived a stroke, deliberately induced by manipulation of pressure points on the head and neck. She can see, hear and feel, she is aware of everything going on around her, but she is unable to move or communicate. In leaving Alison alive, the police believe the killer's made his first mistake.

Crap
30 July 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Just watched the first one of these shown here on local telly.

Don't know what it was called and couldn't care anyway.

Pretentious garbage. Cut and paste of so many clichés. Average acting with the lead playing his role like a Liam Neeson clone.

Not sure what else I can say other than, don't waste your time.

Seriously, don't waste your time.

This line is just for IMDb.

So is this.

Well OK, I can say that it also uses those stupid camera sequences where things share and images swap - like a cheap Japanese horror movie. As I said - pretentious.
