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

The main characters' age is depicted differently throughout the film. In the first scene, Griffin is seven years old and Sandman appears to be in his early thirties. Seventeen years later, as Sandman awaits execution, he seems not to have aged a day, while Griffin is a full grown man. However, the flashback scene shows Sandman appearing to be about 10 years old, while Griffin is depicted as a baby. Their age difference just doesn't match up. See more »
Better than it should be, but still flawed at times
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.
