review by
Mike Haberfelner

Ever since her roommate in college has committed suicide, Jordan (Shelley Regner) has been plagued by terrible nightmares, and what's worse of late she has also taken to sleepwalking - so it was only a logical step for her to move back in with her parents (Diane Franklin, Jamison Newlander) for the time being, even if her mother seems to be a bit on the over-protective side, while her doctor (David Naugton) knows little but to prescribe her ambien. Only with her best friend Zoey (Every Heart) she feels somewhat free - but that's not enough, as her condition worsens, so much so that on occasions during a sleepwalking spell she actually leaves the house and one night is picked up by a security guard - who wants to takie advantage of her, upon which she brutally stabs him to death. When she wakes up later in the shower, she has no memory of what went down, and since there were no witnesses chances are she'll get away with it - but then her mother finds her blood-covered nightgown. But of course, she still covers for her daughter when questioned by a police detective the next day, and of course the detective has no reason to actually suspect Jordan. However, it's not long before Jordan sleepwalks into her pervert neighbour's (Yan Birch) house, and it's not long before he tries to rape her. Eventually he turns up dead as well, but this time it's not Jordan's doing ...

Genre fave Helene Udy makes a cameo appearance as crime scene photographer.


While this film's build-up at first seems pretty familiar to an average genre audience, by the by there are plenty surprise twists and turns to keep one at the edge of one's seat, at the latest when sleepwalking Jordan kills the security guard. Plus, there's a fittingly nightmarish scene to all the murder scenes (especially to Yan Birch's one) that goes hand in hand with the occasional (and intentional) suspension of logic. But a strong ensemble cast made up of many familiar genre faces keep things grounded and relatable at all times, and the end result is a pretty unusual but also pretty enjoyable piece of horror.
