When a drug deal goes awry, best friends Stephen and Ian find themselves at odds with a rival crime outfit. Soon after, their lives are turned upside down when they spend a lust filled night with two beautiful women who turn out to be bloodthirsty angelic vampires. Once the vampiric transformation takes hold, Stephen and Ian use their newfound bloodlust and immortality to enact a gore soaked revenge on their backstabbing adversaries. But when Stephen makes a pact with a demon to hunt down and exterminate the angels that spawned him, the former friends must battle to the death as the ultimate fate of mankind hangs in the balance.
In what is perhaps the ultimate mashup of ‘90s genre film tropes, At Dawn They Sleep from Massachusetts based video auteur Brain Paulin (Bone Sickness, Fetus, Blood Pigs) seamlessly fused the vampire mystique, Hong Kong style gunplay, practical splatter FX, and salacious eroticism into a post-Tarantino crime caper. Always notoriously innovative, Paulin packed his micro-budget production with car stunts, miniatures, body burns, full frontal female nudity, somber autumn vibes, and his trademark show stopping practical gore and creature FX; not to mention a blistering black metal soundtrack featuring Dawn, Usurper, War, & Arckanum. Saturn’s Core is proud to present At Dawn They Sleep in its first ever, director approved Blu-Ray edition, newly paired with Paulin’s scarce debut SOV gore epic Reap of Evil (1994) which arrives accompanied by a wealth of extras of its own!
