Deserves a cult following!
23 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SANDMAN is an extremely rare little horror movie that deserves a larger audience. For a low budget, independent project, SANDMAN is remarkably effective. Some of the acting is not so good, but the script is smart and creative with all sorts of interesting characters and surreal touches. Even the clichéd theme of "descent into madness" (not the only theme explored by the narrative…I'm not giving anything away) is portrayed in an original fashion (more a "death of affect" or "moral blindness" than yet another Jack Nicholson inspired psycho-trip) Like another reviewer, I think the abrupt transitions contribute rather than detract from the quality of the movie and it has a stylish, disorienting feel which matches the content.

I would love for this to become a cult film so that maybe someday we could get a copy of SANDMAN on DVD and some sort of fitting tribute to the director. Judging by this film, he had a lot of creativity and talent in him and would have likely gone on to great things. I'd love to see something wide screen and cleaned up and closer to what Eric Wostee intended.
