Storyline

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. Written by Patrick D. Rockwell <prockwell@thegrid.net>

Goofs

During a scene in which Griffin speaks to Dog about finding the Preacher, Dog is sitting in his car. When the camera is pointed inside the car at Dog's face, he's wearing dark sunglasses. When the camera switches to the front of the car to add Griffin and Megan into the shot, you can see Dog is missing his sunglasses. The camera switches once again to the driver's side window, placing only Dog back into the shot, and still, his sunglasses are missing. See more »

not too shabby
22 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

not that bad nothing special but watchable this had some decent acting and a very cool opening sequence but the plot gets too silly for it's own good and the ending is pretty rushed with some weak dialog but we do have a cool looking killer and a good background story to it and the premise is quite neat it also has excellent production values but this only merits a rental because there are quite a few flaws to be had like why did the kill Griffin before it ended they should have let him survive but still this has some witty moments to make this a decent rental so overall i had a decent amount of fun with this puppy but just remember to check your brain at the door **1/2 out of 5
