Stephen King cultists will find the humour and originality of the author firmly intact, but perhaps only in fragments and flashes.
Ultimately, Bachelor Games falls flat due to lacking commitment to its ideas, but the comedy stitches it together, albeit loosely.
Beautifully filmed, with a bleak karmic mantra that makes for a frequently intense viewing experience.
A comic, upbeat tone throughout that features more one-liners than you can shake a severed arm at.
There is nothing to recommend here; as a creature feature (mostly) missing its creature, The Sand is an arduous watch.
Could have been so much more, but still an alluring watch which bursts with style and vengeful violence.
