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.

Goofs

There are several flashbacks to Griffin as a baby along with his older brother. In the first flashback in question, (first that shows the older brother walk to the crib,) his older brother's shirt is tucked into the front of his underwear. In the next flashback, replaying the same scene, only now extended further, when the brother walks to the crib, his shirt is untucked and hanging loose. In this same flashback, the camera pans away for a moment, with the shirt loose, and when it returns, the shirt is once again tucked into his underwear. See more »

Horror Humor at it's best!
17 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

There are those that would state that this movie blows the almighty cocktosen. I, however, disagree. This film, I found, was quite cleverly scripted and extraordinarily filmed. Plus, it made me laugh until I lost all bowel control. All actors and actresses each delivered a powerhouse performance, except for one near the beginning which I found quite amateur; the mother at the beginning of the film seemed as if she had just started acting classes. However Michael Harris's performance as the Sandman unfortunately doesn't recieve the credit that it was due. I mean, I TOTALLY believed he was the Sandman. He had the sand, he had the lips, he was doing all that creepy-ass lullabye sh!t...he was F@!#ING AWESOME!!! And that preacher dude was WACK! He had those evil f!@#ing eyes and that cross that turned into a knife! I mean, where do they come up with this awesome sh!t! My favorite part of the film was when the Preacher looked at that cop and said "Look at my eyes, mutha-f**ker!" I totally didn't sleep after he said that. Did you?!?!

Once I read Shakespeare, and he forewarned about wickedness being avenged. This was a perfect forlorn aspect of that. In Hamlet, Claudius is avenged by Hamlet for his father's death. This film credibly implements that element of vice being retributed. Don't you think?

I mean, check it out, Michael Harris just, like, goes around killing people. What's that about??? That's like totally awesome!

Go see this movie, you won't regret it. It's probably something you will remember to the grave.

SLEEP, BABY, SLEEP!! That sh*t kept me up all night!!!!
