Storyline

Something or someone is attacking people one by one on the beach. Some of them are mutilated, but most of them are sucked into the sand, disappearing without a trace. What is the creature responsible? Where does it live, and where did it come from? And is there any chance of it reproducing? Meanwhile, David Huffman and Mariana Hill are once-almost-married old friends, reunited over the death of her mother on the beach, and searching for clues in the abandoned buildings where they used to play when they were young.

Trivia

According to Time Out, the film's "debt to Jaws (1975) is implicit from the setting (seaside town loses tourists and trade) to the music (subterranean bass rumbles signal monster's approach)". See more »

Scary Sand
1 December 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jeffrey Bloom directed this land based copy of "Jaws I & II" that stars John Saxon as Captain Pearson, in charge of investigating a series of disappearances along a beach in California, where it seems people were sucked into the sand. When mutilated remains later turn up, it is obvious that some unknown creature is living under the sand, and now it is a matter of finding and destroying it. Burt Young costars as Sergeant Royko. Disappointing film has a distinct lack of imagination in its story, with far too much talk, though some atmosphere. Famous for the tag-line "Just when you thought it was to go back in the water, you can't even get to it!" Not yet on DVD; Perhaps Shout/Scream Factory is the most likely to make that happen?
