    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    A great many New Yorkers are rightfully indebted to doormen, but Jaume Balagueró's nasty little thriller offers a decidedly darker perspective. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    Jaume Balabueró's effective thriller Sleep Tight puts more value on slow-building bad vibes than on pulled-curtain shock, but its treatment of mental illness and voyeurism, lightly salted with pitch-black humor, will feel pleasingly familiar to fans of the older film. show more

    Sleep Tight is a nifty little thriller that dances on the boundary between plausible and preposterous. show more

    Ultimately, Sleep Tight makes a sounder case for nocturnal Webcams than the "Paranormal Activity" franchise ever could. show more

    Sleep Tight is a creepy - but highly effective and superbly made - horror movie from Spain in which the monster is spine-tinglingly human. show more

    Sleep Tight, first of all, is a nifty new Euro-horror film, with several wicked-cold Hitchcockian twists, that shows off the range and craft of terrific Spanish director Jaume Balagueró, co-founder of the "[Rec]" franchise (still the gold standard in found-footage horror). show more

    Director Jaume Balagueró's film is nothing if not a well-executed bit of escalating craziness. show more

    Manohla Dargis The New York Times

    Mr. Balagueró is so overtaken by his villain that he becomes like César, displaying an eagerness to play the role of tormentor, which kills both the movie's pleasure and its flickering political subtext. show more
