Forlorn was the fourth episode of the first season of the American television series Sleepwalkers. In this episode one of the characters was a Succubus.

Sleepwalkers was a science fiction series which began airing on NBC in late 1997. The series was created by Stephen Kronish and David S. Goyer, who would go on to produce the Blade films.

The series told the story of a team of researchers who used technology to enter the dreams of psychiatric patients in order to diagnose their problems. Although nine episodes were produced, NBC canceled national airings of the series after just two episodes. Five episodes went on to be seen only on the West Coast and the show's final two episodes were never broadcast in the United States but did air elsewhere.

Short Summary

When the men of the small mining town of Forlorn begin slipping into unexplained comas, Nathan and his team are called in to investigate. They quickly discover that a succubus--an erotic demon--is responsible, but will they find it in time to stop one of their own from becoming the next victim?


All nine episodes were released on VHS in Japan during the late 1990s by Columbia TriStar Home Video, but were rental-only titles and could not be purchased directly.

Warner Vision in Germany released most of the episodes on DVD as both individual PAL Region 2 titles and as box sets. The German releases feature a Dolby Digital 5.1 track in German, but the English track is the same Dolby Surround that the show was originally broadcast in.

On October 20, 2005 it was released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in Australia as a three-disc set but it only featured six of the episodes in random order. Each disc features two 45-minute episodes combined into one 90-minute film (Something Is Buried in Bethlehem - Night Terror, Forlorn - Counting Sheep, and Eye of The Beholder - A Matter of Fax).

To date, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment does not currently have any plans of releasing the show on DVD in the United States. Mill Creek Entertainment announced that it did have plans to release the complete series on DVD.
