Glaring flaws ruin this one.

While the overall premise of a sleep demon is pretty interesting, the execution is terrible. The film can't decide whether to follow Alice's story, or the family's story and it bounces between the two. To be honest I don't recommend this one at all.

Decent horror

I was pleasantly surprised at this flick as I was not sure what to expect since there wasn't a review yet. I'm not actually going to put any spoilers in, so you can read on without fear.

Basically a new twist on another recent, terrible film about sleep paralysis. This one is worth watching though, I promise.

The acting is very good all the way around and although there were a couple of plot holes, they're forgivable.

One thing I would throw out to the film makers is that I think they made a mistake in offering up too much of the story right off of the bat by somewhat pre-explaining what was going to happen. I think it would have been better to be more vague about the description and let the viewer discover what was happening.

I wanted to like this...

1st off it should be said that I wanted to like this movie as it had a good concept. I have actually been through a sleep study before, and so I was intrigued when I first heard about Slumber.

The movie started out OK but quickly took a turn towards unrealistic nonsense. When I say unrealistic I am not referring to anything supernatural as this is a horror movie and as such the perfect place for all things supernatural. What I am referring to is the writing for one, and the acting for another. The acting can be forgiven as this is a lower budgeted movie with a mostly unknown cast, but that does not excuse the writing.

I take great issue when people do, or say things in films that are simply out of the realm of possibility. Things that are just outright stupid bother me...

-----------------SPOILERS AHEAD------------------

One of these things that just made me scream at my TV after seeing it was when the family spends their 1st night at the sleep centre. It doesn't take long before they begin sleepwalking etc... The 2 technicians Alice & Dr? (who were both away from their monitoring posts)hear screams and quickly go to investigate. They run into the room only to find everyone out of bed except for the son Daniel. They run over to Daniel and look at his chest and see bruises in the shape of a hand print. They then look to the daughter who is standing in a corner quietly humming to herself. When Alice approaches her the father springs out of the shadows and begins choking her. After some struggling the father is subdued by a janitor who just happened to be passing by, and in the next scene we see the father is being handcuffed and led away by the police. Alice tells the Dr. that she believes the father was sleepwalking the whole time, and the Dr. replies that it doesn't matter "you saw the bruises on that boys chest etc..."

So the 2 major things that I take issue with here are 1. The bruise on the boys chest was clearly a hand print, it's also very clear that it was a very tiny hand print, there's noway it was made by the hand of that father. Any police officer, or especially a Dr. would notice this right away.

And 2. I have taken a sleep study before and they monitor EVERYTHING, that includes video taping you while you sleep. It's even mentioned in the movie that there are cameras filming them the whole time, so Why on earth wouldn't they just review the tapes to see what had actually happened??? In real life that would have been the very 1st thing done.

You cannot become, or remain immersed in a movie when logic is just thrown out the window, and unfortunately Slumber is just filled with one head scratching moment after another. I think I'm being quite generous by giving this a 3/10.
