Just when you thought it was safe to get out of the water
Sand Sharks, directed by Mark Atkins, is a Horror/Comedy/Thriller "death from the deep" film with a twist - the sharks don't only eat the swimmers, but they can swim right through the sand and chomp up the sunbathers, like they are part of their personal BBQ buffet.
This film tells the story of the sleepy island of White Sands, where they are throwing a massive summer break beach party to attract tourists and help boost their economy. When a school of man-eating sharks, that can swim through sand, just as easily as they can swim through water, appear on the beach and begin attacking everyone in their paths, leaving severed limbs and heads scattered across the sand.
Starring Brooke Hogan, Corin Nemec, Eric Scott Woods, Vanessa Lee Evigan and Gina Holden, alongside a group of rather fake looking computer-animated killer sharks, Sand Sharks is a great modern day campy B-grade movie, which is a must see for all fans of killer shark films.
Sand Sharks is rated MA 15 for strong horror violence, blood and gore and was originally released on DVD in 2012.
