Katey walks in her sleep and witnesses the murder of an old man. Is it a dream or reality?
You know this is a winner right from the start. The musical achievements (Sleepwalker theme) are wonderful, just like the lighting. Several low-angle shots emphasize threat/impending danger. Interest in characters is established immediately. Summers' house of mysteries takes over where Someone at the Top of the Stairs stopped. Familiar to Basil Copper readers: Bits and pieces of a progressing nightmare come to light.
The two phonecalls are a mystery to me, and the conclusion seems rushed.
Thriller Thriller
Katey Summers glaubt, den Mord an einem alten Mann beobachtet zu haben. Doch sie schlafwandelt, und was Traum ist und was Wirklichkeit erweist sich als schwierig festzustellen.
Sleepwalker ist vielleicht nicht hundertprozentig schlüssig, ragt jedoch trotzdem heraus wegen einer starken Geschichte und großer Spannung. Technisch vergleichsweise aufwendig: Für die Traumsequenzen wurden die Studioszenen über eine Wasseroberfläche projiziert. Die Kulisse ähnelt der aus Come Out frappierend.
Rating: ****+
