Violence & Gore

  • Throughout the movie, people are sucked into the sand and killed or injured. There is a lot of screaming in those scenes, but usually no blood, as most people disappear under the sand.
  • A woman finds several dead bodies and a severed head.
  • A man has his penis apparently mutilated by the creature in the sand. His trousers are very bloody in the crotch area, and the sand is blood-drenched as well.
  • A dog is found dead (nothing is seen except from blood on a woman's hand). A man says his head has been ripped off.
  • A man is found dying and severely injured.
  • A girl is injured by the creature in the sand. We see her bloody legs.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scenes where people are sucked into the sand might be scary and distressing for some viewers.
  • A dog's killing, and the way it is not dealt with and laughed off at the police office, can upset some people.
  • The creature's appearance, although shown briefly, might scare young children.
  • The ending is atmospheric and fairly creepy.
  • Rated R for violence and some nudity/sensuality.
