I've never been to Brighton so I really can't say just how terrifying it is. Fortunately for me, now I don't have to. The Sleeping Room is a 2014 British horror movie directed by John Shackleton. It had its world premiere on August 23, 2014 at the London Frightfest Film Festival and stars Leila Mimmack as a call girl who finds herself entangled in a series of strange events surrounding a hidden room. Funding for The Sleeping Room was raised using equity crowdfunding - a first for British filmmaking. Reviews have been largely positive for this one, and it arrives on UK DVD May 11, 2015.

Synopsis: Set in Brighton, the film follows British call girl Blue (Leila Mimmack) to an old Victorian house where she meets up with her client Bill (Joseph Beattie), who is currently renovating the building. Apparently not interested in sex, Bill shows Blue around the house and reveals that it was once the location of a brothel with a dark past. Stumbling upon an old Mutoscope showing homemade snuff films depicting violent murders, Bill and Blue attempt to uncover the mystery of the hooded figure committing the crimes...
