Heather Santrous’s review published on Letterboxd:
It has been a long time since I last watched this movie. I added it to my Netflix DVD queue a few years back, so I figured I would just watch it again and give it a quick review instead of just rating it. While looking through the cast, I noticed that Stephen King is in this movie, which didn't surprise me since he usually makes a small appearance. I was surprised to see the likes of Clive Barker, John Landis, Joe Dante, and Tobe Hooper. When I first watched this movie, I probably just didn't really know who they were just by looking at them. I also didn't remember seeing Ron Perlman in this movie either. It was fun to look for each person this time around. The only one I wasn't sure if I spotted was Joe Dante, but I figured out which scene he was in.
As for the movie itself, I always found calling the shapeshifter Sleepwalkers a little odd. I guess I have always felt the name doesn't really fit. I also never really cared for how they look when fully transformed. It also would have been nice if the story had gotten into the lore behind the Sleepwalkers a bit more than it does. We are given the basics and it moves on from there. I did enjoy the overall story though. With me being a cat person, it was fun seeing all the cats in this movie. I bet it was a pain to work with them all though. This is a fun movie and worth a watch if you haven't done so yet.
