Recently released on VHS, The Sleeper is a new slasher film by local filmmaker Justin Russell. Justin created The Sleeper as an homage to a genre that peaked in popularity before he was even born: slasher films.
Slasher films are those horror films from the 1980’s where a maniac offs a group of attractive young people with a machete, or a pair of garden shears, or a shish kabob skewer.
