‘REC’ Director Braves Entering Another Apartment Building For ‘Sleep Tight’

By  · Published on January 28th, 2011

Why Jaume Balaguero would even want to step foot inside another enclosed apartment complex after delivering REC, REC 2, and steadily working on two other films for that franchise, is beyond reason. Those movies were enough to make me happy to be in a house where it’s nice and safe (except for all the masked and un-masked, tennis shorts-wearing strangers that keep coming by to torture me and my family for no discernible reason). The point? Damn, the REC movies are scary.

So when I saw that Twitch had a teaser for Balaguero’s forthcoming Sleep Tight – the day was made.

Check it out for yourself, and never look at your doorman the same way:

Absolutely chilling.

It’s still so ambiguous even with a set up that leaves the doorman looking empathetic and guilty beyond reason. This is the kind of movie and teaser that begs the audience to figure out what happens next.

Cannot wait for this.

Not super happy with the “Don’t let the bed bugs bite,” tagline, but it is topical.

What say you?!
