Cesar is a deeply troubled and unhappy apartment block concierge. The only thing that brings a smile to his face is the misery of others, particularly happy go lucky resident Clara. He begins a campaign of terror against Clara to try and ‘wipe that smile off her face’.
Sleep Tight is very similar to Hammer Horrors recent comeback film The Resident in plot but is executed much better in reality. This film is another example of how non English speaking horror films (Sleep Tight is Spanish) are currently beating out their English speaking counterparts.
Shout out to Luis Tosar who despite looking like a Spanish James Nesbitt plays Cesar perfectly to make him both charming and despicable at once, he even inspires sympathy at times.
