Movie Info

A group of U.S. soldiers encounter a powerful supernatural force in this taut psychological horror film from Dead Birds director Alex Turner. Afghanistan, present day: a U.S. military unit is dispatched to secure a strategic road. During the course of their mission, the soldiers notice an ancient stone statue nestled deep in a narrow gorge. When one of the soldiers takes a shot at the sculpture, a vengeful supernatural spirit is awakened from its centuries-long slumber. Now, as the ancient entity unleashes hell on the unsuspecting soldiers, a simple mission turns into a desperate struggle against a force that won't rest until the entire squadron is dead. Shane West and Leonard Roberts star in a desert-bound shocker featuring J.K. Simmons and Callum Blue.

...an ambitious yet wholly underwhelming endeavor...

While not a perfect film, it was visionary and impressive given a tiny budget.

Audience Reviews for Red Sands

I really really am not sure what I just spent an hour and a half watching. US Soldiers in the desert stir up something evil. . way to go guys!

Shockingly adequate. I'd not recommend it unless you are a fan of just watching random horror movies. It's definitely not for the mainstream blockbuster crowd. It has a limited reach - but that works with the film and because of that it isn't overly flawed. It knows what it can and can't do and makes the best of it.

This movie was a great disappointment!! Poor special effects of the creature and ridiculous horror story because it didn't scare me.

Red Sand is about a group of soldiers who during a mission in the middle east get alittle bored and decide to take shots at a stature in the sand that is of course untill one finally hits it just right and destroys the whole thing little do they know by doing so they have unleashed a curse upon them and are visited by something sinister the next day that will make them all turn against one another in the hot middle east sand. I can honestly say this wasnt a horrible supernatural thriller had a decent for the most part story i just think something was missing that could have made it alot better maybe even 4 stars might have been the actors or the small budget it was just missing something still a ok watch as in i wasnt bored sitting threw it.
