'Sleepwalkers' and '976-EVIL' Getting Special Edition Blu-rays from Eureka Entertainment


The Mick Garris-directed Stephen King adaptation, Sleepwalkers, and Robert Englund's directorial debut, 976-EVIL, have already received solid Blu-ray releases here in the states, via Scream Factory and Sony respectively, but this Halloween season, Eureka Entertainment will be providing UK horror fans with must-own Special Edition Blu-ray versions of both films.


In fact, this will be the first time that either film has officially been released on Blu-ray in the UK! Both arrive on October 19th, 2020, as a part of the Eureka Classics line.


In Sleepwalkers, "Brian Krause, Mädchen Amick ("Twin Peaks"), and Alice Krige (Chariots of Fire) star in this terrifying tale of modern-day vampires who move from small town to small town to prey on virtuous young women. Imperceptibly inhuman to everyone except for felines, these vicious shapeshifters have their eyes on a new victim: Tanya (Amick), who has fallen for Charles, the new boy at her school."

And in 976-EVIL, "High school underdog Hoax (Stephen Geoffreys – Fright Night) fills up the idle hours in his seedy little hometown fending off the local leather-jacketed thugs, avoiding his overbearing mother (Sandy Dennis) and dreaming of a date with trailer park temptress Suzie (Lezlie Deane), But his quietly desperate life takes a terrifying turn when his cousin introduces him to an unusual new hobby – phoning in for his "horrorscope". Hoax is hooked up with a compellingly hideous demonic force that slowly begins to overtake his entire life and now there’s more than just a phone bill to pay for anyone who ever dared cross the neighbourhood nerd."
