"Sleepwalkers" review

Sleepwalkers (1992)

Directed by Mick Garris

Writing credits Stephen King

Brian Krause .... Charles Brady
Mädchen Amick .... Tanya Robertson
Alice Krige .... Mary Brady

Stephen King must have been petting his cat one day while listening to "Sleepwalk" by Santo and Johnny when he was struck with inspiration. "Cats, cats, cats. I love cats. I love this song. How can I get these two loves in one movie?" Thus "Sleepwalkers" was born.

Two freaky monsters move to a small town so that they can suck the life out of a virgin girl. They both despise cats and love each other. Yes. Mom and son getting it on like all monsters should. The son finds the last supermodel virgin on Earth. The romance is brief as life sucking takes precedence over anything sexual. Besides, he's got a hot mom aching at home. There is much blood and mayhem as super virgin tries to fight off the freaks with the help of an army of angry cats. Go Clovis!

I enjoyed this simple little movie. Monsters find virgin, virgin fights back and the cats go wild. There was plenty of blood and guts to keep a smile on your face. Speaking of smiling, Madchen Amick is at her hot babe peak in this one. She has one move that lets you know she's a shy, sweet girl: She bites her bottom lip and then slides her teeth slowly off. This move happens at least a dozen times. I could have watched it a dozen more. Mmmmmm...Virgin teasing. The monster was hooked at that point. So was I.

One last thought, what decade is this movie supposed to be set in? The main monster loves "Sleepwalk" and Madchen Amick is shaking her groove thing to "Do you love me?". In other scenes there will be loud modern rock blasting away. King obviously loves his 50's rock and roll but I had a hard time imagining a 90's girl doing the Twist and the Mashed Potato.

SCORE: 3 out of 4 lip-biting Amicks

And another hot picture of supermodel virgin Amick.

That blue dress is hiding something quite magnificent, i wish i could have buggered Madchen Amick when she was 18 in 1988 she was absolutely incredible. Actually i would also have loved to have buggered Alice Krige when she was 18 in 1972 because she was quite a tasty bird when she was young as well, not as breathtaking as Madchen obviously but still a nice little bird.
