Format: Audio CD
This is a fairly unusual soundtrack to an otherwise unremarkable movie. The film, a Stephen King adaptation starring Twin Peaks' Madchen Amick, is a typical small town horror tale and as such requires a specific range of well worn sonics to provide its creepy soundscape. This is all present and correct but rather uninspiring.
Having said that, there are two quite EXCEPTIONAL pieces of music on the disc, right at the beginning and right at the end. The first, "Sleepwalk" by Santo and Johnny (cheesy 50s Hawaiian guitar duo) is mesmerising and full of bewitching character. It is being used on a few adverts in the UK at the moment so you've probably already heard snatches of it.
The other, "Boadicea" by Enya, is a ghostly, melancholic (and quite threatening) melange of ethereal voices accompanied by a plaintive Fairlight synth motif. Fans of the Fugees will recognise this as the sampled intro to "Ready or Not" from their album "The Score".
These two pieces of music are used more frequently than anything else throughout the film and I would guess are the ones most of you are looking for!

Great soundtrack, but why Cop Kabob is out of order made no sense to me. I just reordered the tracks. It seems there should be more music, but, maybe not. It's amazing to me that this movie is twenty years old! It seems like it was made just a few months ago to me!

HASH(0x9a0ee7e0) out of 5 stars The sound and the fury 5 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whenever the wind blows against the trees near the lake, the house seems older than already is and we are ready to hear some wonderful chords from nature. Exactly the same happens with "SleepWalkers" (The Soundtrack). The Golden Era chords -shadows of the american dream- flow like the melancholy of a grown up eating jelly. These raw and penetrating songs acomplish the difficult task of getting into your head, activating your thinking (even when you see such a terrible movie like "Sleepwalkers", that doesn't have nothing to do with the life-stories -not the terror fiction- of one prolific writer called Stephen) to the point of losing yourself into the music to rich a higher state of mind. I hope this song will be out of my head one day, but, as its title confirms, SleepWalker would not rest until I do.
