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.

Critic Reviews for Red Sands

All Critics (2) 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.
