Sleep paralysis horror drags its feet over a plot all too familiar
17 July 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

Slumber has a promising buildup which deals with the intriguing phenomenon of sleep paralysis. But, the tension created dwindles because of too many rote jump scares, and characters not being believed for what is happening to them, and a story which is vhumdrum. It slips further to an unsatisfying climax.
