YOU SHALL NOT SLEEP Unclassified 18+
An abandoned asylum plays host to a dramatic experiment involving a young actress who must go without sleep in this frightening follow-up to single-take horror hit The Silent House (MIFF 2010).
For aspiring actress Bianca, the offer of a starring role in an experimental new play is too good an offer to refuse. As part of their preparation, she and her fellow actors must stay awake within a disused hospital. These are the sinister beginnings of the latest innovative film by Argentinian director Gustavo Hernández, a film full of twists and turns within its labyrinthine plot.
Slickly produced and with evocative dream and hallucination sequences, You Shall Not Sleep offers a new spin on old genre tropes. With its spectacularly creepy performances amid the psychological chaos, You Shall Not Sleep may prove a self-fulfilling prophecy for those who see it.
"The foreboding atmosphere and genuinely chilling narrative make this an engaging mystery that rewards patient viewers." – Bloody Disgusting
