"Sleeper" is supposed to be a homage to 80's slasher movies like "The Prowler, Halloween, Black Christmas, Friday the 13th and Prom Night". That explains why it is set in the early "80's. Also why a lot of scenes are copied from several of those classics. However it does not explain the bad points: - Music so annoying you want to turn off the sound more than once. - A dull and slow story that isn't entertaining or even interesting for a minute. - An "albino looking" killer that's supposed to be scary because of some light blue contact lenses. - A cheap and terrible camera/montage crew, which ineptness is really shown during the final chase scenes.
I love the slasher genre, but it's more than just a bunch of gory special effects. Sure, "The Sleeper" has a couple of them, they rank from laughable to OK but overall not really convincing. But besides that, this movie has nothing more to offer: bad director, terrible cast without a spark of charisma and the story is avoided of any tension or thrills. Not using your FastForward button is in this case a mission:impossible. Stick to the classics instead or watch "You're Next" if you're looking for a slasher homage.
