The Sleepover (2012) Dir. Chris Cullari
The Sleepover has the feel of a fun 1980s horror film, full of wonderful nods to horror movies gone by and filled with great ideas and character. The charm of this film comes from the interesting concept, which the filmmakers offer up bit by bit ending in a wonderful comedic pop of a climax. I would be very interested in seeing more stories set in this world.
When two young boys have a sleepover, one of them is unfamiliar with the town’s gruesome history and the preparations needed to survive what lurks in the shadows.
