As it sleepwalks towards its ungrand finale, the new King invention falls back on familiar things.
Cameo appearances by horror icons Clive Barker, Tobe Hooper, and the King himself add little to this slapstick gorefest, which focuses on goofy bloodletting-including death by corn-on-the-cob-and tosses in a modicum of thrills and chuckles.
A campy cat-treat.
A nicely scary little thriller and one of the better adaptations of King's work.
Plays as if King took it out of the trunk, blew the dust off, and cashed his check.
Realised 10 minutes in I have seen this before and forgotten it. Then half hour later I realised why and switched it off.
Just not very good. And this from someone who gets on YouTube and actually seeks out made for tv thrillers.
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.
A strange, unsettling vampiric type family horror story from Stephen King, it's really different, and I really liked it. I'd like to see it again before I write anymore about it, though, I saw it a long time ago.
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!
