Decent war/horror movie crossover
22 August 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I basically like any horror movie crossover but I believe this one is superior to most out there. Of course, don't bother to watch this if you expect a non-stop action flick filled with expensive special effects or if you belong to any US military fan club - you will be disappointed. For the rest of us however, this movie packs some solid acting, beautiful photography, chilling atmospheric music/audio and creeping slow paranoia that got my attention and wholly entertained me until the credits rolled on. I am a two decade horror movie expert and I must say Red Sands is a low budget jewel that impressed me... although he ending was predictable but still very efficient and true to the spirit of the movie.
