Slumber or Lumber - Slumber review by porky

Spoiler Alert
26/04/2018

Slightly Wooden Horror tale about Sleep Paralysis and Nightmares .Sleepwalking and Dark Shadowy Figures.

Not a Bad move but a few bits let it down for me ,

Firstly Sylvester McCoy is hard to take seriously in a serious Horror movie after being such a bad comedic TV Dr Who in the past . and for some reason the lead actress is made to be as stupid as possible. How someone that Works in Sleep Research ,Investigating peoples Nightmares and Sleeplessness and Grew up with a Brother that suffered Night Terrors ,had Never heard of Obvious Nightmare stories from History and Folklore about Shadow People or Night Hags and had to look them up on Google ??? Sorry but did she even pay attention at Sleep Research school ?

Other than that ,an averagely enjoyable movie. not sure it is worth a second watch, but certainly a single watch .

This is an interesting chiller about people doing horrible things when they are asleep, or think they are. It does contain a fair few children, however. I mention this because children in horror films tend to fall into two categories: genuinely frightening (The Exorcist, The Ring etc) … or brattish. ‘Slumber’ manages to straddle both possibilities, which is something of a first. Stumbling, screaming kids and ghost-like images are fairly well conveyed, never truly annoying and occasionally producing something genuinely sinister.

The soundtrack, a dark ambience by Ulas Pakkan must take a lot of credit for the omnipresent atmosphere of not-quite-reality-or-is-it, and the cast are uniformly very good, even when – in the case of Maggie Q as Alice Arnolds and Will Kemp as husband Tom – the characters are not overtly dynamic.

It can be, I’m sorry to say, a little dull, very talky. But there are plenty of moments that deliver the goods. The idea of demon feeding off nightmares is a good one, and it plays on a fear of going to sleep, the debilitating misery of resisting slumber and that hollow pang it can cause.

Events are enlivened by the appearance of former Doctor Who and Radagast, Sylvester McCoy, who hams up delightfully the typically eccentric Armado. We only catch a glimpse of the lengths Armado has gone to to resist falling asleep, and it is disturbing.
