Jason goes to the R-squared Horror Festival--Monday, Sep 20

Just one movie last Monday

AEGRI SOMNIA: Well, at least the cinematography was pretty good on this nightmare come to life. Edgar is a whiny little guy still in mourning over his wife's suicide. And that grief is consuming him, to the point where he can't relate to anyone. When a girl at work takes him out, just to get him out of the house, he ends up not talking to anyone while she goes and hooks up with another guy. And she doesn't come back to work the next day...or week...or ever. It's pretty clear early on that Edgar isn't a victim, he's a killer (sorry if that's a spoiler, but it was pretty damn obvious). And it's got the sort of overplayed camera work that's okay for a short film (many scenes, taken on their own, are excellent) but just gets artsy and pretentious when taken to feature length.

Running Time: 90 minutes
My Total Minutes: 208,826
