Excellent fast-paced thriller
21 September 2014 | by simon-113-790952See all my reviews

This is a masterpiece in independent film making. The Sleeping Room is exquisitely fast paced and takes viewers through a Hammer-style plot thickly laden with mystery. Set in Brighton, Blue is an escort who gets more than she bargains for when she arrives at the home of her client Bill who is doing up a house. Together they discover something in the house that sets the story from sleaze to screams! For those that like deep character development, you might be disappointed, but if you like a well written story with imaginative use of narrative and effects that frequently creeps you out, then this is for you. The use of sound is chilling. Great acting, and a brilliant example of directing by John Shackleton, despite this being his first feature film.
