Verdict on Sleep. Walk. Kill.
Sleep. Walk. Kill. Is a horror comedy that follows a group of survivors that get caught up in an outbreak that causes people to turn into killers during their sleep. It sees them coming together to battle against the sleepwalkers, needing to find a solution to the situation.
This movie follows the concept of people needing to work together to survive a sudden threat. While we usually play out on pure zombies, this sees people turn into sleepwalking zombies, with only speculation about what caused it. It sees the group slowly getting smaller like you would imagine most of these playing out.
In the end, it is an entertaining horror that keeps us on our toes. It has surprises and a nice spin on the zombie inclusion into the movie.
Final Thoughts – Sleep. Walk. Kill. Is a sleepwalking zombie movie that brings a fresh spin to the zombie idea.
