Cheap remake of French movie
9 March 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Red Sands is a (cheap) remake of a French movie called Djinns. Both remind me of The R Point (without reaching it) : horror/psycho/thriller war movies

If you have not watched Djinns, then you will like Red Sands or find it OK (that's if you like this sort of horror/psycho/thriller war movies). It is tense, and the scenery makes it tense too. So if you like Red Sands, i strongly recommend you watch Djinns (taking place in the 60's during Algeria War)

But if you have watched Djinns fist (like me), you will be disappointed by Red Sands : it is too cheap, the plot is not as developed, not as tense as in Djinns, well in 3 words : not as good.
