Sleep 15

Jason Yu, South Korea, 2023, 94m.

What if the place you thought was safest suddenly became a battleground for your sanity? Young couple Hyun-su and Soo-jin are about to become new parents when, one night, heavily pregnant Soo-jin wakes up from a deep slumber to her husband’s first act of parasomnia. Debut director Jason Yu brings audiences a clever, well-crafted and genre-bending thriller.


The Garden Cinema View:


Those hoary horror staples of sleep disorders/paralysis and demon seeds are rearing their horrifying heads again in this effective new chiller from South Korea. It’s an impressive debut from Jason Yu who deploys genre conventions quite elegantly within a claustrophobic chamber setting. Some early sequences are genuinely quite uneasy, but a vein of subtle humour stops proceedings from becoming too intense. Ultimately, this is a an examination of the pressures of parenthood on a couple. Both well played here, with a bittersweet performance from the late Lee Sun-kyun (known in the West for his work with Hong Sang-soo and in Parasite).

Cast:
Jung Yu-mi, Lee Sun-kyun, Kim Kuk-hee
