Movie Info

When newcomers Charles (Brian Krause) and his mother, Mary (Alice Krige), settle into town, the local residents do not suspect that they're shape-shifters looking to feed on the town's virgin girls. Charles quickly befriends innocent and chaste Tanya (Madchen Amick) when he begins attending high school, hoping to take her life force in order to feed his mother. When Tanya agrees to a first date with Charles, she may learn his true intentions the hard way.

    Has a little bit of a Near Dark vibe, except that Near Dark was good. And didn't contain werecats. Stephen King movies are generally pretty hit or miss. This one's in the miss pile, but even it is not unwatchable.

    Horror based on Stephen Kings book. Cat lovers may find themselves a bit distubed at the beginning as we see a house surrounded by hung cats. Later, we find the reason behind this is a couple of shapeshifters, a young man and middle aged woman, who move from place to place, finding human prey. When pretty student Madchen Amick(who previously played a fit waitress in Twin Peaks) falls for the young man, unaware of his shapeshifting ways, it seems shes in for a whole world of shit. This isn't bad considering I never have high expectations of Stephen King adaptations but this has a few unintentionally funny moments, especially towards the end, a couple of questionable moments(how can they make a car invisible?Or change its make?!) and cameo's from Tobe Hooper, Clive Barker, John Landis, Joe Dante and King himself so this is worth a look for horror fans despite not being anything special.

    Sleepwalkers is a borderline average Stephen King horror film about shape shifting vampires. The film is fairly cheesy with average acting and doesn't try to do anything effective, new or thoroughly original. The film feels lazy and there is a sense that it could have been done much better. The idea explored in Sleepwalkers is interesting, and it could have been something truly terrific, but King doesn't try to make it interesting enough to blow you away. The ideas feel like they're scrapping the bottom of the barrel and there isn't really anything going on here thats really exciting. The film is cheesy fun, but it never goes beyond anything spectacular, good or truly original. Sleepwalkers has moderate chills, but considering that this was written by Stephen King, you'd expect something better, right? Well, the result with Sleepwalkers is a film that is entertaining and fun, but lacks the fire to make it truly an exciting and memorable horror film. Sleepwalkers is worth watching, but keep your hopes at a low to medium level so you don't disappointed. The premise of the film is interesting, but Stephen King could have done a few rewrites of the script before turning it in. The film feels like it was a filmed using a first draft of script. Sleepwalkers is a moderately fun film, but nothing to really write home about.

    Good bloody fun from start to finish. It's a fairly short film that doesn't out-stay its welcome or take itself too seriously. The keen-eyed horror fans will enjoy spotting the numerous cameos. I was also pleasantly surprised to hear my favourite Enya song as the films theme. Very entertaining stuff!
