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 »

It is memorable only for the lullaby at the end
27 January 2003 | by adashielSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie a couple times on cable, but the only thing about it I remember is the haunting lullaby ("Sleep, baby, Sleep") at the end. It took me awhile to even remember its name. It's far from being a good movie, but at the same time, it's not bad enough to have much camp value. That lullaby, though, is amazing.
