  1. hey folks, I have this movie stuck in my head but for the life of me I cannot remember the title !!

    - It has this mother and son characters who are monsters.
    - The mom is a good sort, and the son falls in love with a chic who works at the local cinemas.
    - The son drives a blue Mustang, and when he holds his breath he can make himself disappear.
    - Their race of monsters are scared of cats.
    - The final scene has them attacked by cats and they die by burning to death !



    Can anyone remember this movie ?
    It was a made of TV movie released around the mid 90s.

    I think it was a Stephen King adaptation movie.

  5. TErrible Movie but a great book. Like all King Stories they don't translate well into film.

    The only exceptions are 'The Shawshank Redemption' from the short story 'The picture of Rita Hayworth' and 'The Green Mile'.

    Bonus points: What was the soundtrack music? It was a creepy instrumental piece...

  8. Thats what got the movie stuck in my head !
    I had the ipod playing on random and the Rolling Stones song - "Time Is On My Side" came on . . . this reminded me of that movie with Denzel Washington - Fallen, that movie about some demon spirit able to move from person to person.

    The tune of this Rolling Stones song reminded me of this creepy song from Sleepwalkers which must have triggered off in my head horror movies i've seen with similar tunes from the 60's/70's ! The cat at the end of the movie Fallen probably also contributed to remembering the Sleepwalkers movie.

    I don't think the Sleepwalkers song is instrumental but.

  10. +1

    But as movie adaptions go, I'd add the film "Stand By Me" from Stephen King's "The Body".
