A new super train is built when a meteorite crashes near by, releasing a tiny creature. Once it kills and consumes everyone on board the train, it begins to grow and multiply into hordes of different creatures.
Lou Diamond Phillips,
Seventeen years after slaughtering all but one member of a family, a vicious serial killer known only as "The Sandman" awaits execution. But first, his jailers allow a minister to visit the killer to give him last rites, unaware that the minister is a voodoo priest and an ally of the condemned prisoner. The priest places a hex on the Sandman so that when he is executed, his soul migrates into a new body made of sand. To sever his ties with his former life and achieve absolute power, the sandman must find and kill a man named Griffin, the sole survivor of the last family murdered by the killer. Written by

During a scene in which Griffin speaks to Dog about finding the Preacher, Dog is sitting in his car. When the camera is pointed inside the car at Dog's face, he's wearing dark sunglasses. When the camera switches to the front of the car to add Griffin and Megan into the shot, you can see Dog is missing his sunglasses. The camera switches once again to the driver's side window, placing only Dog back into the shot, and still, his sunglasses are missing. See more »
It's a haunting movie, rather fascinating and I fail to understand why the ratings are so abysmal. There's more depth and subtlety to it than people would expect from this genre (maybe that's the problem), and the supernatural elements never seem forced or out of place. The antagonist is the kind of antagonist you're expected (and given every reason to) hate and fear and although you do, at the same time you don't because understanding him comes naturally. The storyline is far from predictable, the acting is good, and the soundtrack has its moments of brilliance. However, in my experience the ambiance was what made Sleepstalker unique. I saw it once on TV a year after it was released and it's been with me ever since. Highly recommended.
