As part of their on-going “Friday Night Frights” series, the Los Angeles-based Cine-Family will host a very special screening of SLEEPWALKERS (1992) – on Midnight, April 24th. I’ll be on hand for the fun, along with co-stars Brian Krause and Mädchen Amick. Anders Holm (a huge fan of the film) from Workaholics will also be there.
Here’s how Cine-Family describes the movie:
“SLEEPWALKERS marked the first of many collaborations between Stephen King and director Mick Garris, who would later go on to helm the TV versions of THE SHINING, THE STAND and DESPERATION — and damn, is it a doozy. Brian Krause and the always-haunting Alice Krige star as a mother/son team of shape-shifting energy vampires whose natural form is a sort of were-cat. Not weird enough for you? How ’bout adding some highly-charged incest into the mix? Stir in a hot dollop of TWIN PEAK’S Mädchen Amick as the love interest/heroine, as well as many horror icon cameos from the likes of John Landis, Joe Dante, Clive Barker, Tobe Hooper and Stephen King himself, and you’ve got an over-the-top saucerful of silly fun. As mentioned before, King and Garris would team up for many adaptations, but SLEEPWALKS (an original screenplay) sees the dynamic duo at their whacked-out best.”
Here’s my take on the film, courtesy of Trailers From Hell:
