One nice day in a suburban neighbourhood, everybody hears a weird and
unexplicable noise from the skies - and from then on, everybody falls to
sleep turns into a homicidal sleepwalker. And loveable loser Edgar (Bill
Reick) becomes aware of this when his neighbour Lynn (Ashlee Rose Toll)
comes over covered in blood, trying to kill him. He somehow manages to
wake her up, upon which Lynn has to come to terms with the fact that she
has just killed her husband Jeff (Zachary Uzupis) in her sleep. Realizing
what's going on, Edgar races across town to save his ex Ady (Samantha
Russell) he has still feelings for and who has just killed her current
boyfriend in her sleep. Returning to Edgar's house, they also run into his
parents (Ellen Boscov, Bob Quintana), his stoner uncle Pat (The Legendary
Wid), his neighbour Paul (John Reshetar), Paul's pregnant wife Sarah
(Raquel Watson), and teenaged Hazel (Melanie Rosedale), who has just
witnessed her parents killing one another in their sleep. The group decide
it would be best to sit it out in Edgar's basement with plenty of coffee
while keeping one another awake. Thing is, this isn't very homogenous a
group, and character's soon clash, be it Edgar's mum and Ady,
self-righteous Paul and pretty much everybody, or uncle Pat, who's unable
to properly grasp the situation, with all the others. But what might be
the even more pressing matter, how long can one go without sleep?
concept of this film is nothing if not interesting, it's a silly premise
turned into a serious horror film with a comedy approach - it sounds like
an experiment doomed to fail, but Sleep. Walk. Kill. is actually
a surprisingly entertaining movie, one that manages to switch
between comedy and drama at the drop of a hat thanks to a clever script
full of fleshed out characters and poignant dialogue, and of course, an
able cast, many of them Philadelphia-based comedians, help to make this
into a very enjoyable genre effort.
