A mother and son complete with incest move to a different town since they are really big cat monsters- fair description who need to keep feeding. Son tries to fit into life and claim a virgin girlfriend so he can give her up as food for his mum. Whilst of course Sleepwalkers is a horror movie based on a Stephen King story, the movie works because of its different characters and story arcs, so much so that a second viewing soon after would not bore.

There's definitely meat on the bones for this one and watch out for tiny cameos from King himself, Clive Barker, Joe Dante and John Landis, movie is directed by Mick Garris. Oh and Ron Perlman plays one of the cops, ironic given that he looks like one of the shapeshifters. Whilst not a horror classic, I'd put this one as a really solid horror movie.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 27 April 2014
Overlooking the perverse sexuallity of this film it's the story of hunk Charles Brady [Brian Krause] who is having an incestuous relationship with his sexy mother Mary [Alice Krige]. They are both Sleepwalkers—vampire like creatures with a distinct fear of cats, who are able to shapeshift themselves and their possessions or even turn invisble when they have to, who need to feed off the lifeforce of virgin women. Arriving in a new town, enter Tanya Robertson [Mädchen Amick] as their next victim.
The opening scenes are definately not for cat lovers, so beware. Despite it's age [1992] the film still manages to provide good entertainment, but if it's an outright horror you're after then you'll be bitterly disappointed as the film lacks the frights and gore of modern films and is quite tame for a Stephen King story, even the sex scenes manage to get by without nudity. Whilst it is now no longer ground-breaking it remains highly watchable. Some weak scripting in the middle lets it all down a little but it mostly manages to keep quick paced and it all seems to end rather too soon, yet I can't see how it could have been extended. The soundtrack fits superbly with the overall film, whilst the picture and sound quality are good for the time.
Not quite a five star, but certainly recomemned if your looking for a lightweight hooror in the vein of Hitchcocks 'The Birds' -only with cats, and they really freak me out.

Based on Stephen King's unpublished story, Sleepwalkers is about a mother
and son, who prey on virgins and are engaging in an incestuous relationship.
The son - Charles seeks out a beautiful young virgin played by Madchen Amick
to feed the mum, but she is stronger than Charles anticipates and what follows
is a bloody conclusion...

I actually enjoyed this. There is a cameo by Stephen King and the amazing Clive Barker.
The way they trained the cats (the only thing that can hurt the villains) was amazing and cute.
Very brutal but decent horror flick.

This is one of those Stephen King films where you wonder what he was thinking when he wrote it!
Its a story of a half human, half cat shape shifter vampire mother and son, who have a very strange relationship. They have just moved to town and need virgin souls to survive and become fixated on a beautiful girl. Its an incredibly cheesy film, with gore galore (although not done well!) but its worth watching if you are a Stephen King fan.
His stories often are strange but they are good to watch.

Saw a review of this film on Youtube & had to see the film. Hmmm!! What an odd piece of weirdness. I can't explane the film, I wouldn't buy it unless its under £2 but if its on tv give it a watch.
