Until It Sleeps Directed by Samuel Bayer

What are people saying?

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Until It Sleeps

    Bayer's video work during the 1990s showed a singular and uncompromising vision beyond that of his peers, such as Snyder, Lawrence and Fincher. His work was imaginative, recognisable, evocative, disturbing and often influenced by an eclectic and impressive array of art. It's just a shame that all his talent and imagination could only lead to a dreadful remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street for producer Michael Bay.
