On January 8th, 2013, Sleep Tight comes to Blu-ray and DVD from Dark Sky Films and MPI Media Group. Directed by Jaume Balagueró (Fragile, [Rec], [Rec]²) and written by Alberto Marini (Films to Keep You Awake: To Let), the film was nominated for more than 20 awards in Spain and won six Gaudi Awards, including Best Director, Best Actor for Luis Tosar and Best Screenplay.
Toiling silently among the residents of an everyday Barcelona apartment building, doorman César (Luis Tosar, Even the Rain, Miami Vice) harbors a dark secret: his sole desire in life is to make others unhappy. When he sets his sights on Clara (Marta Etura, Cell 211, Dark Blue Almost Black), one of his building's cheeriest residents, his sick need blossoms into a full-fledged obsession.
Embarking on a series of private and physical violations against Clara, César becomes determined to ruin her life by any means necessary. Becoming the boogeyman hiding under the bed and bringing her nightmares to life, his fascination with torment soon crosses the line into lunacy — and his thirst for others' sadness soon becomes manically unquenchable.
Director Balagueró delves into the perverse fantasies of a man on the brink, and delivers an unnerving tale of obsession and torment that delivers nonstop thrills right up to its shocking conclusion.
