I feared it would be bad, but I really didn’t think it’d be this bad. “Spirits take no prisoners”? What the hell kind of tag line is that? Something tells me this is not the vision director Alex Turner had for “>Red Sands, formerly known as The Stone House, when he set out to make the film.
Sony updated us with the official DVD artwork for Red Sands, which you see on your right and features that incredibly catchy tagline. Since details have been vague from the get-go on this one, how’s about some official synopsis?
Present-day Afghanistan. As continuing battles rage in the war-torn country, a unit of U.S. soldiers are dispatched to seize and control a strategic road that runs past an abandoned stone house. En route, the soldiers discover an ancient stone statue hidden deep within an ancient ravine. Using the relic for target practice, they destroy it, unwittingly releasing a vengeful supernatural force that is about to wage a horrifying war on them in this taut, action-packed, psychological thriller.
It sounds like it could be a good time, and this is the guy who brought us the well received Dead Birds a few years back, so let’s home it remains somewhat intact. Check out the trailer below, then click here to pre-order Red Sands, which hits DVD on February 24th!
