Her client Bill is renovating one of the apartments and has found an old Mutoscope (an old machine with photos in that when you turn the crank, it changes photos, giving you the impression of movement. A very popular one is known as 'What The Butler Saw').
After watching the odd little sequence of a man in a burlap sack dancing with a couple of women, they find a hidden room with all sorts of trinkets in.
It turns out the man in the burlap sack liked to film his own pornographic movies, but some of the girls that joined him went missing.
Eventually the girls had their revenge and he went missing.
No body's were ever found.
Well Blue may just be the one to solve the mystery, and her personal life before the prostitution may be involved more than she knows.
The Sleeping Room is a very British film (Set and filmed in Brighton) and there's a lot of English slang that foreign viewers may not understand.
It doesn't help that the acting is atrocious at times either.
But then it is worth at least a one off watch.
It's quite obvious to figure out what's going on and what's going to happen, but if you can get past that and the acting, you have an alright little film on your hands.
It's well written and well directed, so it's a shame that the acting brings it down.
In all honesty I would say I lost interest part way through, but it never really kept my interest in the first place, and I was actually looking forward to this film.
I think mainly it's because it felt like it was trying to hard to get somewhere all of the time. It constantly played out like something good and extremely strange was going to happen, when in fact we got what could be a weak episode of Goosebumps, just for adults.
Because if it wasn't for what the story was about, and one scene in particular, it could be released as a 12.
Overall I was underwhelmed unfortunately and would give the film:
On to the SPECIAL FEATURES.
Sixth Sense (3:14) - A very short boring film with a woman in a building who hears a noise, sees something out of the corner of her eye, drops her tape recorder and screams. That is literally it.
Behind The Scenes (5:48) - A Behind the scenes look at The Sleeping Room with no interviews strangely enough, instead it looks like someone just filmed them making the film, cut out a ton of footage, then put music over it.
Visual Effects (3:50) - Dan Hedger, one of the effects artists on the film along with a couple of others tell you how they made certain visual effects in the film. This is easily the most interesting special feature and although they aren't the best effects, they are definitely some good ones and it shows how well they've done it.
FrightFest Interview (9:47) - I was surprised that this was such a long special feature. Billy Chainsaw of Film4 Frightfest interviews John Shackleton the director of the film. They talk about how John got involved, locations, the props and much more. I have to say, the interview is more interesting than the movie.
Gallery (2:04) - A 2 minute play through of behind the scenes photos.
Trailer (1:31) - Obviously a trailer for the film.
So unfortunately the special features aren't much better and don't redeem the film.
So it's still a 5/10 for me.
