I’m not going to lie: I was ready to make fun of The Sand as soon as I read the description. Killer sand? Really? Throw in Jamie Kennedy and you have a surefire recipe for ridicule. Much to my surprise, I’m kind of looking forward to The Sand, which should arrive in time for Halloween.
The official synopsis reads, “After a raging all-night party, a group of hungover twenty-somethings awakens to a beating sun and a carnivorous beach that devours anything with a heartbeat.”
See? It shouldn’t look good, but it does. The film isn’t striving for originality, but it looks like a ton of fun. I suppose we’ll find out when The Sand hits DVD on October 13. At some point between now and then, check out the trailer below. Feel free to disagree with my amusement.
