    On November 6, 2009, In My Sleep screened at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival, where it won the Audience Choice Award. The movie has sold to over seventy countries around the world and has been translated into German, French and Spanish.

    Box office

    Critical reception

    Reviews of the film were mostly negative. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a Tomatometer rating of only 12%. While critics conceded that the premise was interesting, they denounced the film as talky, dull, and technically shoddy. John Anderson wrote in Variety that it "boasts all the cerebral and aesthetic restraint of a West Hollywood dance club," and "Production values are dire, with too much lighting and not enough design." In the Los Angeles Times, Gary Goldstein wrote "Writer-director Allen Wolf loads In My Sleep with so much psychosexual baggage you wish he just focused on one emotional affliction to propel this mediocre whodunit," and concludes "Its ultimately all too contrived and superficial to feel convincing, despite the storys often lurid appeal."

    Awards

    In spite of negative reviews, the film has won several festival awards: "Audience Award" at Fort Lauderdale Film Festival, "Best Feature Film" at Omaha Film Festival, "Best Narrative Film" at the Las Vegas Film Festival, "Audience Award" at the Kansas City Film Festival, "Gold Kahuna Award" at Honolulu Festival and was a finalist for "Best Feature" at Kansas City Film Festival and the Orlando Film Festival.
