The Sleeper Official Re-Release

The Sleeper (2012)Scream Team Releasing (the distributors of The Barn and 10/31) is proud to announce the newest addition to the label…The Sleeper. A retro throwback directed by Justin Russell that pays homage to the early slasher films of the 80s’ such as Black Christmas, Prom Night, The House on Sorority Row and Girls Nite Out.

Originally released for purchase on DVD and VHS back in 2013, The Sleeper gained a cult following throughout the indie scene but eventually went out of print. The Scream Team is happy to say that after many years of slumber The Sleeper is now awake and ready to make some calls! Re-issued and now upgraded to HD as a brand new 2 Disc Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack . Packed with bonus features including an hour long making of featurette, and reversible case artwork. If you purchased the DVD years ago, don’t worry about having a duplicate copy, because the new DVD is an alternate version known as “The Lost VHS Transfer”.

The Sleeper Synopsis

It’s 1981 and the girls of Alpha Gamma Theta sorority are having a party. Amy, sick of living in the dorms, invites her roommate Ava to attend the party with her in hopes that they’ll both become Thetas. As the girls arrive, so does an uninvited guest watching them in the shadows. Amy’s choice quickly becomes a nightmare as the Theta girls begin to disappear one by one. Announcing his victims, the killer calls the house whispering the next to die. The police hunt for the missing girls and the killer, but will they find him in time? Or will all the girls sleep for good?

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
