Scream Team Releasing is releasing a brand-new combo pack for The Sleeper. This film is hailed as a retro throwback that pays homage to early '80s slasher films such as Black Christmas, Prom Night, The House on Sorority Row, and Girls Nite Out. The Sleeper is directed by Justin Russell, whose other notable works include Death Stop Holocaust and The Gremlin.
The Sleeper was originally released on DVD and VHS back in 2013, which garnered a cult following throughout the indie film scene and eventually went out-of-print.

Here is the full synopsis for the film as well.
It's 1981 and the girls of Alpha Gamma Theta sorority are having a party. Amy, sick of living in the dorms, invites her roommate Ava to attend the party with her in hopes that they'll both become Thetas. As the girls arrive, so does an uninvited guest watching them in the shadows. Amy's choice quickly becomes a nightmare as the Theta girls begin to disappear one by one. Announcing his victims, the killer calls the house whispering the next to die. The police hunt for the missing girls and the killer, but will they find him in time? Or will all the girls sleep for good?
The new collector’s edition is retailing for $19.99 plus the cost of shipping.
