Sleeping with the Dead, a nearly ten-year-old ghost story from Hong Kong, manages a few scenes to entice the viewer. But, unfortunately, there is never much of a pay-off. We see the life a doctor who becomes involved in the investigation of a series of grisly murders. Despite his job and the rash of killings, he seems detached, focused mostly on his relationship with his wife. That relationship seems to be falling apart, but the doctor has no problem attracting other women (which is odd since he's so moody), he sleeps with them but they're certainly not dead. Ghosts appear from time to time and our doctor seems to be able to see them. Ultimately the story goes nowhere. We get an explanation for the killings, and for the doctors detachment, but it falls sort of flat. Watch if you have insomnia.
