The Sand is one of this year’s most fun films. It’s a high concept, fun horror which on page doesn’t sound like it should work; mean-eating sand anyone?

In fact the sand has become downright nasty, with a thirst for flesh. Luckily all our survivors aren’t in contact with the sand, two are in the lifeguard tower, four are in a car, one crashed out on a picnic bench, whilst another is the unfortunate (or in this case fortunate?) victim of a drunken prank and is stuck in a barrel.
