Critic Reviews for Stephen King's 'Sleepwalkers'
Sleepwalkers has one big thing in its favour, namely that it is so much damn fun!
A suitably bloody romp about oedipally incestuous werecats who thrive on virginal energy and a smart, sensitive and stealthy satire of groups like the Moral Majority -who were as prolific and profitable in the 1980s as Stephen King himself.
There's ultimately not a whole lot within Stephen King's Sleepwalkers to get wholeheartedly (or even partially) excited about...
Not a good movie, nor a scary one, but you're guaranteed a good time with its inherent stupidity and silliness.
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.
Audience Reviews for Stephen King's 'Sleepwalkers'
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.
