Charles and his mother Mary move to a small Indiana town, having recently fled Bodega Bay, California after draining and killed a young girl there. They are sleepwalkers - they can change their appearance and they need the lifeforce from young women. Charles has picked out young girl Tanya, whom he meets at a local high school, as his next victim. He asks her out for a date and invites her home - however, she did not suspect his real interest in her. On their first date, a picnic at a nearby cemetery, he attempts to drain the lifeforce from her for himself and his mother.Written by
During a Q&A celebrating the film's 25th anniversary, director Mick Garris revealed the Enya song "Boadicea" was chosen for the film only because, of all the songs provided to him by Sony Music at the time for cross-promotion, it was the one song he felt fit the tone of the film. See more »

To obtain a more commercially viable M rating for its theatrical release in Australia, a majority of the film's violence and gorier moments were cut by Columbia TriStar Films. These cuts were later restored for an uncut R rated home video release. See more »
This film is one of my favorites. I pretty much enjoy all of S king's films. The incest part here throws me off a bit , and is unlike any other S King film in that sense. But I still like this film for everything else it brings to horror table. The effects are also fairly decent considering these creatures that the mother and son morph into look more like aliens then they do vamps. Watching the star cat in this film , I almost think it's the same cat from S King's Cats Eye. It could be and then again , maybe not. Then again , that may even be Stephen King's pet! Got me. All and all , fairly good film - It's Stephen King! PEACE :)
