Sleep

Dir. Jason Yu
94 min

Hyun-su and Soo-jin are recently married, installed in a cozy apartment, and expecting their first child. But soon Hyun-su begins sleepwalking, his nightly sojourns becoming increasingly troubling until Soo-jin begins to wonder if her unborn child is his subconscious target.

In the daylight (and wide awake), Soo-jin’s beloved Hyun-su is a happy man, with a good job, utterly devoted to his wife and so eager for the child. Old-fashioned, Soo-jin believes it’s a wife’s duty to stick by her man, but is her man two different men–the good in waking life, the bad in his walking dreams? Jason Yu’s startling debut is a mix of Cronenbergian body horror and Hitchcockian suspense, and is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seat.

“A directorial debut of poised peril that should inspire both laughs and a few sleepless nights.” –Nick Schager, The Daily Beast
