Movie Info

Yuri Burkin recently moved to New York City and is crashing with his old friend Jake, when he meets Jake's attractive coworker MK. He takes her out one night and they end up back at Yuri and Jake's place. While Yuri and MK are making out in the other room, Jake becomes violently ill and suffers a massive seizure. Yuri and MK call 911, and go with Jake to the emergency room. Seeming stable, he's left to recuperate but dies unexpectedly in the early morning. No one can explain what killed him. The Medical Examiner theorizes that he took contaminated narcotics, but Yuri never knew Jake to do hard drugs, so he begins his own investigation. He finds something disturbing in Jake's room: a listening device hidden inside a trophy from Jake's employer, the self-help company True Healing. With MK's help, Yuri gets a job at True Healing, going undercover to find out what happened to his friend. He notices suspicious behavior from the office manager and the boss, and finds a pill bottle in Jake's desk. He discovers other recent cases of mysterious deaths and begins to understand that True Healing isn't actually a self-help company, and Jake isn't the only victim in what appears to be a conspiracy involving a new disease that is spreading across the city. At great risk to his own life, including contracting the disease himself, Yuri will not stop until he finds the source of the virus and destroys the company that stands to profit when it becomes an epidemic.

Critic Reviews for Night Sweats

All Critics (13)

It reaches for our attention by aiming for the Moon itself, but is unable to propel off the ground as it's using sparklers for fuel. Decoration without anything to celebrate.

Super low-budget but intriguing, this horror/whodunit about a mysterious disease spreading through the city seems especially well-timed to induce scares.

April 10, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's seldom that contemporary film is actually offensive in its gender politics, but this goes beyond casual, thoughtless sexism and enters the realm of explicit, self-satisfied, and unreflective misogyny.

Night Sweats wobbles at the beginning, but gains equilibrium. It concludes with power.

March 11, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

"Night Sweats" tries to be a relationship drama, a corporate thriller and medical procedural all at the same time. What's worse is it fails spectacularly at all three.

March 6, 2020 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The lo-fi production casts an ambitious net and smartly makes the most of its cloistered locations... framing it all in tight and embossing the emotional impact.
