Seventeen years after slaughtering all but one member of a family, "The Sandman" (Michael Harris) is pending execution. Before his execution the jailers allow a minister (Michael D. Roberts) to visit him. The minister is a voodoo priest and an ally of the prisoner which the jailers did not realize. A hex is placed onto The Sandman so when his execution is over his soul can travel to a new body made of sand. The Sandman then plots to kill a young man named Griffin (Jay Underwood), who was the last survivor of the family he attempted to slaughter. The film features Ken Foree in a cameo role as a police detective.
Prism Entertainment began pre-production of the film in 1994.
Sleepstalker was released direct-to-video in 1995.
TV Guide rated it 2/5 stars and wrote, "Sleepstalker simultaneously demonstrates its director's cinematic finesse and frustration at being unable to transform a sow's ear screenplay."
