2.0 out of 5 stars Terrorists and Prehistoric Worms?? 8 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
This film stars Jason Hedrick and Tamara Hope and is directed by Jeff Renfroe. It is part of the `Maneater Series' and has the tag line `Terror Lies Beneath'. For those of you who haven't guess, it's a monster movie.

Set in Afghanistan. Lieutenant Stanley (Hedrick) and his team are trapped by enemy combatants near an old abandoned mine. The enemy tries to flush the soldiers out using explosives but only unleash a more terrifying enemy. Giant prehistoric worms explode out of the ground and munch down on anyone in the vicinity. Now trapped because of the worms, the soldiers team up with an Afghan refugee to try and make it to an evac site. If the worms weren't bad enough the enemy come looking for their lost followers and the soldiers have to fight on two fronts all ending up with the soldiers arriving back where they started.

The first thing that pops into mind with this film is the whole giant worms deal has already been done brilliantly with `Tremors'. That's not to say that the film doesn't have its good points. The action is pretty much none stop and the special effects are sound. The story line could have used more work but if you're just looking for an entertaining film to pass the time you could do worse. As a creature feature is about average, not the worst nor the best in the `Maneater series'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sand Serpents 29 Dec 2009
By David J. Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a really good creature movie. Contrary to what you might read from other people, the acting isn't bad at all. The special effects by far exceeded my expectations and were very impressive. The worms in the movie are very large too. The characters are actually very likeable as well. Overall I really enjoyed this movie, and I think if you don't expect some huge epic blockbuster or something, you will too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ass movie 30 Dec 2009
By kaila - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
If your a sci fi nerd ( like me a doctor who lover) you'll like this movie because if gives you a scare knowing afterwords you can go to bed at night. Dont watch if your under 10. And remember this is a b movie so the effects are not going to be amazing but still pretty good. Watch if you like suspense horror and somewhat gore.

2.0 out of 5 stars As the worm turns 18 Oct 2010
By Michael J. Tresca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Sand Serpents is actually about giant worms. "Sand Worms" doesn't quite have the alliterative quality to it, so Sand Serpents it is.

Like Manticore, horror filmmakers have found America's overseas operations a real goldmine of new settings to play in. Every ancient evil can be played out against a backdrop of conflict, which means there are plenty of soldiers with guns available to helplessly fire at the beast. Who needs the Colonial Marines from Aliens when we've got real Marines?

That's the sales pitch anyway. The truth is that director Jeff Renfroe just wants to remake Tremors.

Because it's Afghanistan (instead of Iraq, like in Manticore) there's lots of talk about the Taliban, captives getting their heads cut off, and innocent citizens caught in the crossfire. It's pretty clear that Renfroe has a political ideology he wants to push, and he pushes hard.

In between the proselytizing, cardboard characters get eaten by giant worms. These worms are bigger than the critters from Tremors. They're Dune big, which makes them nigh impossible to shoot or really avoid. The worms are fond of chomping down on top of anybody stupid enough to stand out in the open and, just like Tremors, they navigate by sound. When they're on camera, the worms are suitably imposing. Most of the time, see the worm's point of view, which involves soldiers shooting over their shoulders at the camera while they flee. It's about as exciting as it sounds.

One by one, the stereotypes (angry black guy, underclass girl scrabbling for a second chance, sarcastic guy, dweeb who just wants to get home to his family, etc.) are sucked up into those awful maws. Occasionally, the Taliban gets caught too. The movie's emotional core rests on the small shoulders of a young girl and the wide-eyed blonde private (Tamara Hope as Jan Henle) who's determined to save her.

The problem is that young girl doesn't speak English, so she conveys emotion with only her eyes. Cute as she is, this gets old fast. Henle, on the other hand, has all the charisma of a rock - she speaks her lines like she's in some sort of trance. Her foil is the team's captain, played by Jason Gedrick. Gedrick tries hard to whip up something, anything, between him and Henle but there's nothing there. He has a more convincing connection to the worms.

Speaking of the worms, Renfroe has a message that involves American soldiers wearing suicide belts. The movie's final iconic scene (interrupted by a commercial on Syfy channel - I nearly shut my Tivo off because I thought the movie was over) is both disturbing and peculiar. What's the director trying to say? Where did the giant worms come from? And why isn't anyone calling in a missile strike on worms that can be seen from space?

Sand Serpents doesn't have any answers because it's like Tremors without humor, or Dune without religion - just another can of worms.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Movie Review! - [...] - @tss5078 25 Feb 2013
By Todd Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
You ever feel like just sitting down and watching something simple and entertaining that you don't really have to think about? Well this isn't it. This was garbage. It is every bit as stupid and ridiculous as it looks. When it comes to Sand Serpents, you can defiantly judge it by its cover.
