    Dead Awake

    ½

    Ok... I pride myself as someone who's seen a good amount of trash, but enough is enough. I've spoken about this before but the fetishization of sleep paralysis and night terrors in horror has already died twice and been beaten to death again.

With titles like Divergent, Project X, and Two Night Stand under his belt, he doesn't exactly scream 'good actor'. Can't say I'm a fan of the romance subplot either - their mutual discovery of common ground and 'quirkiness' feels slightly fabricated - and not…
