Sleepwalkers

Sleepwalkers ★★★★

exceptional case of throwing a bunch of sticky nonsense at the wall at once and committing unabashedly to whatever insane bit that accumulates to. couldn’t get enough of Clovis, the hero cat, or the weird incestuous melodrama from Hell vibe; this feels more esoteric than the average King adaptation if only because it exists in its own filthy bubble.

everyone here is just going for it, including Garris’ camera, which feels like a wild animal in its own right. even the cat extras get some all-timer reaction shots (especially in the grand finale). a true testament to the unhinged potential of cocaine.
