Seventeen years after slaughtering all but one member of a family, a vicious serial killer known only as "The Sandman" awaits execution. But first, his jailers allow a minister to visit the killer to give him last rites, unaware that the minister is a voodoo priest and an ally of the condemned prisoner. The priest places a hex on the Sandman so that when he is executed, his soul migrates into a new body made of sand. To sever his ties with his former life and achieve absolute power, the sandman must find and kill a man named Griffin, the sole survivor of the last family murdered by the killer.

Did You Know?


There are several flashbacks to Griffin as a baby along with his older brother. In the first flashback in question, (first that shows the older brother walk to the crib,) his older brother's shirt is tucked into the front of his underwear. In the next flashback, replaying the same scene, only now extended further, when the brother walks to the crib, his shirt is untucked and hanging loose. In this same flashback, the camera pans away for a moment, with the shirt loose, and when it returns, the shirt is once again tucked into his underwear. See more »

Better than it should be, but still flawed at times
3 November 2011 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

When a serial killer returns from the dead only now in an immortal body composed of sand to finish off the lone survivor of a massacre, he tries to get his friends together to stop him before he can complete his mission of revenge.

This one actually turns out a lot better than it initially should be, due in large part to one of the more creatively-imagined killers as it manages to combine a somewhat goofy-in-concept killer with one that maintains an aura of creepiness as he does here, with the creepy physical look that actually does a decent job of melding human characteristics onto a base of human sand, creating a great look and a clever concept that works well. In addition, it also works well in the gore department as, for a change-over, it's not blood and guts but instead a variety of sand-based concepts, having your skin stripped in a vicious sandstorm leaving just bones and ragged clothes, projectiles and such make for a good time, even if they're overall effect is undeniably campy and goofy. There's also some pretty tense scenes here and there, from the opening where the killer's caught in a family's house, a couple decent stalking scenes amongst his friends and a rather enjoyable finale, where the original tactic of having the killer accomplish his task before being finished by an integral plot member is a lot of fun. All-in-all, this here is a pretty decent slasher.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Language and Brief Nudity
