Sleepwalker (Saxon Logan, 1985)
« on: 20 May 2013 - 19:24 »



Quote
When wealthy couple Richard and Angela visit Marion and Alex in their decaying family home, their differing social and moral attitudes create uneasy tensions. An inharmonious evening of drunkenness and sexual rivalry soon turns bloody as the guests fall victim to an unhinged attacker.

Featuring a rare performance from Bill Douglas (Bill Douglas Trilogy, Comrades), and starring British screen greats Joanna David and Heather Page (both of whom would go on to work with Douglas in Comrades), Sleepwalker is an outrageous and incendiary mix of biting satire and bloody horror that is at once reminiscent of otherwise unlikely bedfellows Lindsay Anderson and Dario Argento. The stellar cast also includes Nikolas Grace, and features cameos by Fulton MacKay, Michael Medwin and Raymond Huntley.

Remastered from the only surviving print, this long-unseen mid-length film is presented here for the first time on any home video format, along with two shorts by its director, Saxon Logan, and the rare 1971 mid-length fantasy, The Insomniac, directed by Rodney Giesler.

Special features

- Presented in High Definition and Standard Definition
- The Insomniac (Rodney Giesler, 1971, 45 mins): a man experiences a night-time world that is part foreboding nightmare, part sexual fantasy
- Stepping Out (Saxon Logan , 1977, 10 mins): a couple’s untraditional early morning ritual is observed in a short drama which originally supported Polanski’s The Tenant in UK cinemas
- Working Surface: A Short Study (with Actors) in the ‘Ways’ of a Bourgeois Writer (Saxon Logan, 1979, 15 mins): Bill Douglas plays a writer struggling with a script about the interior lives of two women (playing by Joanna David and Heather Page)
- Extensive booklet with essays and complete credits

There is a write up on the film in the second creeping flesh book I believe, this has been in the works for ages and its great to see its on its way. In my opinion the flipside range is getting better and better, the last six or so releases have ushered in films with real cult appeal, still cant get over the bfi releasing 'nightbirds'

It's the whole package that gets me really interested. Short films packaged together in one release, with extras. Love that stuff. The film sounds cool too, don't get me wrong

Some of the shorts are better than the main feature on some of their releases.
