Synopsis by Mark Deming
A man makes a disturbing discovery about what he does in his sleep in this thriller from Sweden. Ulrik (Ralph Carlson) is an architect who lives with his wife Monika (Ewa Carlsson) and children in a comfortable suburb. Ulrik's peaceful existence is shattered when he wakes up one morning and discovers Monika and the kids are missing, and his bed is covered with blood. The police have no leads on what may have happened or who might be responsible, though some wonder if Ulrik himself may be to blame. Ulrik discovers he's begun to sleepwalk, and he wonders if his nocturnal journeys have something to do with what happened; hoping to find out what he does while sleeping, Ulrik straps a video camera to his shoulder before going to bed, and he's startled by the results. Sleepwalker was the first feature from director Johannes Runeborg.
