This ridiculously entertaining pile of rubbish lacks any finesse but replaces it with high energy. Recommended? Absolutely.
There is nothing to recommend here; as a creature feature (mostly) missing its creature, The Sand is an arduous watch.
While the central concept obviously lends itself to crass humour, the film actually unfolds as a delightfully quirky comedy.
With long takes, reliance on sound and suggestion, and chilling climax, it is one of the better found-footage titles.
A superb horror movie from a studio at the top of their game. A wealth of bonus material rounds out a great package.
Fearless in its idea, but disappointingly lacks the direction and acting needed to pull off its own wacky intellections.
