When Beach Patrol Alex is sinking in the sand, there is a large black gap between his feet. This is either the empty hole for the actor to sink into, or a glitch where the green screen didn't render the shifting sand correctly. See more »

This film lacks on a whole new level.
24 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

A party on the beach takes a whole new turn when these two teens find an egg. The next day, it apparently hatches, and takes over the sand, devouring anybody who comes into contact with the sand. The plot was intriguing if it was SyFy TV movie standards, however it is not. I felt is if this was one of those plots that could've been much better, but when given, we get utter crap. The execution of this entire plot felt lazy, and slower than it really could've been. The characters we are given to follow through this entire movie were just annoying. The film tries passing them off as smart, or perhaps quick thinking, but in this case make them seem even more clichéd, and low-minded than usual. I don't mean to sound rude, but come on. The film passes them off as clichéd characters who try burning off movie runtime by bickering about the typical "You slept with my boyfriend" gimmick, usually seem in these horror films. With the characters, as if the clichéd, overly common characters weren't enough, try taking the horrible acting, and dialog why not? The acting in this movie isn't even comically bad, it literally stands as just flat out bad. The dialog is atrocious, once again, the film attempts to make these characters supposed hero's, but instead make them seem stupid, and even more clichéd as usual. The given dialog, at points, seems so horribly stupid, and at points even angering. The decisions in this film, as well, are dreadful! There were so many things these characters could of done to make this film make so much sense! But no, they took the wrong turns, pretty much at all the supposed right times. They make the stupidest decisions, when it's unbelievably obvious at points. Finally for the SyFy vibed' part of the film. The CGI. This film has CGI that seems better off as SyFy, TV movie material. There's parts where it looked like unfinished, horribly placed CGI tentacles, as well as gore, and blood. They were horribly placed at times, other times looked unfinished, and fake, overall, just not a very good attempt at CGI. At all.

In conclusion, why. This film took so many wrong turns, and lacked so much it's just hard to follow. The characters are annoying, clichéd, and executed with terrible acting. The CGI was literally like recycled SyFy material half the times, the film makes us sit through the characters making some of the stupidest decisions, in some of the most obvious of situations, leading to heavy disappointment, and even anger at some points. The dialog is just dreadful, and overall, this film tries passing up the typical teen - character - horror film clichés, which failed, and just lead to more disappointment. I wouldn't recommend this film unless you're into terrible films that, in fact, aren't so bad it's good .. but just plainly bad.
