Watch this if you liked: “The Resident” and “Disturbia”.

"Sleep Tight" or "Mientras Duermes" is a disturbing Spanish thriller about a doorman, Cesar (Luis Tosar), who secretly torments the residents of the building as he sees no other purpose in life than to make others as miserable as he is. He is most bothered by cheerful resident, Clara (Marta Etura) who seems unperturbed by the "coincidental" string of bad luck she seems to be facing. This motivates Cesar to find more ways to torment her but he hits a bump in the road when her boyfriend (Alberto San Juan) returns from his long trip away.

Luis Tosar ("Even the Rain") is eerily convincing as the sociopathic doorman. He plays his character so well that it leaves you with chills whenever he half-smiles. One of the most disheartening displays of his character is when he calmly but cruelly degrades an elderly resident in the building, breaking her spirit. Throughout the movie, you see his character grow to be bolder and more fearless as he gets away with increasingly despicable acts. Unexpectedly impactful in her character is Iris Almeida. She plays a problematic girl who catches Cesar red-handed multiple times and blackmails him for money and porn. The 13 year old's character is not a particularly major one but makes the important distinction between a real sociopath and plain mean-spiritedness.

The movie deals with various aspects of human fear and disgust. Beyond the gory scenes, it deals with intense themes like sexual violation, intrusion into ones safe space, abandonment and death. It leaves the viewer with an unsettling feeling of helplessness. Jaume Balagueró is no stranger to the horror genre, having written, directed and produced more than 10 horror-thriller movies. Clearly, he hasn't lost his touch as this is a carefully laid out thriller that doesn't rely too much on cheap scares.

This is a must-watch for the not faint at heart. Just be sure to lock your doors and check under your bed, tonight!
