The new indie chiller gives you another reason not to get some shuteye.
Terror Films releases SLEEP. WALK. KILL. November 4 on VOD and digital platforms. Written and directed by Justin Miller, it stars Bill Reick, Ellen Boscov, Melanie Rosedale, Samantha Russel, John Reshetar and The Legendary WID. The synopsis: “If you sleep, you become one of them. News reports tell of an Earth-shattering sound heard along the entire East Coast. Nobody knows where it came from. Nobody knows what it means. That night, people start walking in their sleep. And killing in their sleep. When the screaming stops and the blood dries up, the ones who are left have to work together to stay alive. Heads will roll, eyeballs will fly, but for Edgar [Reick], hell is still just other people. His ex-wife, his parents and all his neighbors are hiding out at his house. And they’re even worse than the flesheating sleepwalkers.”
“SLEEP. WALK. KILL. is horror filmmaking at its most independent,” says the filmmaking team in a statement. “A motley crew way outside of any system made a movie because that’s what we wanted to do. For some of us, it was our first feature. It represents our admiration for the genre, our aspirations as filmmakers, and years of hard work. This is a message-in-a-bottle we hope will reach like-minded misfits. We did it all for the love of horror, and now we’re sharing that love with you. Thank you for taking time out of your life to check it out.”
