A shape shifter (Burke) comes from the desert in search of victims, a spirit the locals call "The Dust Devil". He prays on the lonely and the unloved, those who have already lost everything but life itself. Wendy (Field) has broken up with her husband and wanders aimlessly in her car. She picks up a stranger and begins having misgivings about picking him up when strange things begin to occur. Meanwhile a local police officer (Mokae) tracks the killer. Aided by a shaman's admonishments about witchcraft he sets off to try and stop the beast before it can complete its grisly task. Written by

Finally I get to see the original cut! Excellent!!!
One has to wonder what the hell is wrong with Miramax and the W Brothers? The director's cut of Dust Devil is superior cinema! Brilliant visuals, innovative camera work, mystical, compelling narrative that takes time to flesh out character... wow I guess I just answered my own question. Richard Stanley is a great talent, one can only hope that he will somehow get back into the Cinemadrome someday soon.
