(CC, BB, Pa, V, S, N, MM) Strong Christian, moral worldview of God’s forgiveness being offered and accepted though no mention of Jesus, support group meets in church, “Amazing Grace” is sung, woman gives Bible to man, with elements of pagan lifestyle that are soon stopped; no obscenities and no profanities; man stabs himself graphically, woman bleeds from stab wounds; implied sex scene in public bathroom between strangers, implied adulterous act, much discussion of sex as man joins “sexaholics anonymous”; man in pair of briefs, men in swimsuits, frequent upper male nudity, man in tub but covered up; drinking of alcohol and drunkenness; no smoking and no illegal drugs; and, adultery, nightmare images, suicide.

Summary:

IN MY SLEEP is about a sleepwalker who awakes covered in blood, a bloody knife by his bed, and learns his best friend’s wife has been murdered. With Christian overtones and a well made, gripping story, IN MY SLEEP requires caution for a few scenes but is a spine tingling, redemptive movie.

Review:

IN MY SLEEP is the story of Marcus, a sleepwalker who wakes up covered in blood, a bloody knife by his bed and learns his best friend’s wife has been murdered. Thinking he has unknowingly killed her in his sleep, Marcus tries everything he can to recreate the night when he would have committed the murder. Terrible dreams haunt him. Also, two women come into his life as he tries to figure out what’s happening. As he works to discover the truth, he meets with his mom and slowly learns of a terrible secret from his past that is tied to his sleepwalking.

Meanwhile, the police and even Marcus’s best friend and the victim’s sister all suspect Marcus of murder. As lies and betrayals are revealed, the plot reveals the real killer.

IN MY SLEEP is a brilliantly written thriller that genuinely keeps one guessing throughout the movie as to what is behind Marcus’ secret and who killed the woman. There are plenty of “red herrings,” characters who keep you from guessing the real killer. The pacing is superb and the performances top topnotch. Allen Wolf has created a very well made thriller.

Marcus is sexually promiscuous, but joins a 12-step group that meets in a church. Before he does, the movie shows him philandering through an implied sex scene with a woman he just met at a bar.

Marcus meets his neighbor, who goes to church, gives him a Bible, and tells him about God’s forgiveness. In a subtle, yet powerful way, Marcus is able to understand God’s forgiveness in the end. Note, however, that “God’s forgiveness” is discussed with no mention of Jesus.

IN MY SLEEP has no foul language, and the onscreen violence is limited. There are haunting images in Marcus’s nightmares that ultimately provide the clues to the family secret kept for so many years.

Caution needs to be exercised because of the movie’s mature themes.
