probably the best picture that tor johnson starred in... that doesn't say much.

May 2, 2008

A mediocre film that has earned a rep for wasting an all-star caliber cast of some of the greatest horror actors.

Audience Reviews for The Black Sleep

I've seen this story in other movies, better movies. Even though the movie has a good cast, it's not too exciting. Overall it's just okay.
