Entertaining 80'ies throwback mystery impossible to predict outcome of.
16 April 2017 | by OJTSee all my reviews

The Insomniac is a very entertaining movie mystery about the young man John Figg (flawlessly played by Eddie Salazar) who has everything until he loses his father in a massive heart attack. But having been very smart and effective, he gets a nice promotion, followed with great confidence by his boss (John Heard). His girlfriend and him are moving into a luxurious house in a new suburban neighborhood, but then one morning going to job his classic car, inherited from his father is missing, with a cheeky post-it note left. After work he comes home finding his house robbed and his fathers ashes thrown around in the living room, once again with a note.

This is how The Insomniac by director Monty Miranda starts off, and the title tells us what happens next. John Figg are not able to sleep, and the sleep deprivation slowly makes him lose grip, and he starts suspecting almost everyone is untrustworthy. Even his clients, like the rich Jairo Torres (Danny Trejo), which he out of nowhere accuses of doing the break in.

The film gave me a nice throwback to one of those nice crazy thrillers with insane plots we saw so many of in the 80'ies. i found the film immensely entertaining, and with a plot you simply don't know where's going. A film which both seems familiar and then has an insane plot, is just what i was looking for today.

The film also makes you guessing to the end. What a blast!
