Netflix Movie Review
Another Netflix movie captured my attention. Slumber carried lore that's been pretty popular in previous movies, due to the condition of sleep paralysis and the dreadful Old Hag that sits on your chest. Mostly, I enjoyed it because my current novel has something similar going on- but I digress...
Did Slumber make an impact with me, or did it fizzle into darkness?
The story’s about a family, plagued with sleeping walking, sleep destruction and more. They go to see a specialist and agree to undergo a sleep study. When they’re observed, something spectacular explodes across the scene and no one knows what to do to help. The results bring on danger for everyone involved, even the observing scientists! What takes place is unnerving but you can't look away.
The movie is actually a pretty cool watch. It’s not a deep, emotional movie, but it’s creep factor can only lead to one conclusion. Sadly, not everyone comes away safe and sound. It’s one of those movies where you don't really want to know what happens to them. But honestly, you know before it takes place. Sucks, but You Know.
Slumber builds to a crescendo that would makes you think the ending’s going to be a fabulous crash. But it's not. So, as far as entertaining, it was a three point five star movie. Well worth watching, but just know it's not a five. Regardless, be ready for a nightmarish ride.
I’m off to the next read. Cheers!
