It will put you to sleep alright...
7 April 2021 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Well, I suppose the movie's title, "The Sleeping Room", is a clear indicator of what this movie will do to you. It is so unfathomably boring that its pacing will put you to sleep.

I tried to suffer through the ordeal that is the 2014 horror movie "The Sleeping Room", but I just had to give up on it. The movie's storyline was anything but interesting, and the pacing of the movie was so atrociously slow that you could leave the movie, come back 15 minutes later and still be up to speed with current events in the movie.

The character gallery in "The Sleeping Room" was every bit as monotonous and pointless as the storyline was; a fact that hardly helped to carry the movie or make it even remotely watchable or interesting.

I have to admit that I am a bit astounded that three writers - Alex Chandon, Ross Jameson and John Shackleton - could collectively manage to write something this abysmal and fully devoid of anything entertaining or interesting.

The acting in the movie is adequate, I suppose. I wasn't familiar with anyone here though, but the fact that the actresses and actors had virtually nothing to work with in terms of script, storyline and characters, made for some very forgettable performances, though that was not the performers fault.

"The Sleeping Room" was a boring movie experience; one that I couldn't even make it halfway through, and one that I am never ever going to return to watch the rest of. This movie simply wasn't worth the time, money or effort.

As for this being a horror movie, yeah, that's a big no. If you enjoy horror movie, you should find something else to watch. Trust me.

My rating of "The Sleeping Room" lands on generous two out of ten stars, based solely on the production value of the movie.
