So I do have a soft spot for terrible horror movies shown on the cable network Chiller. They’re often pretty bad, but they also tend to include sexy people in them. This movie, Blood Sand (aka The Sand) from 2015 is no exception. It appears to be a remake of the 1970’s movie called Blood Beach, where people found themselves sucked under the beach sand, presumably by some sort of alien creature that lived under it.
To be honest, I never actually saw Blood Beach, but the image of being sucked under the sand is oddly sexy to me. Perhaps related to my gunge fetish, I do find the premise of quicksand to be quite appealing. As a kid, I remember being very fascinated by the mud scene in The Neverending Story (the guy there is young, but at the time, I was a similar age, so it was appropriate), as well as the quicksand scenes in Krull and King Solomon’s Mines (the 1985 version, with Sharon Stone(!)) and Richard Chamberlain–who later came out as gay).
In any case, I grabbed a few pics that seemed up the alley of the readers of this blog. Don’t worry, there’s no gore here, although if you do see the full version of the movie, there is some (very, very fake computer generated) gore effects.
The guy in the first pic lying face down doesn’t last long, but the other guy is Dean Geyer. Sorry the pics are fuzzy; I literally just held up my iPhone to the TV screen.
