A depressed hospital surgeon David is drifting into contact with a malevolent ghost following the death of his mother and the discovery that his wife has been unfaithful.
User Reviews: If anything, SLEEPING WITH THE DEAD is mostly the victim of familiarity aka over saturation. With a host of Hong Kong films involving dead people and people with the ability to see said dead people, SLEEPING just comes across as being more of the same. Jordan Chan gives a mature performance, but it’s not enough to save a film that, simply put, is being put out in a market already filled with similar films boasting similar themes and, on most occasions, starring people who are in the same films with the same premises!
Kelly Lin gives a good performance, but like Chan’s turn, she’s in a hapless film. There’s nothing here that hasn’t been done, and worst, 2002 is already bloated with films with similar themes. Maybe in another year, SLEEPING WITH THE DEAD might have been better. But alas, it’s just another victim of a trend that refuses to die. (Har har.)
