Prehistoric sand-dwelling sharks are unleashed on the island of White Sands when an underwater earthquake cracks open a crater deep beneath the ocean surface. The most menacing beats to ever rule the waters now rule the sand; with their monster appetities they mercillessly feast on anything that crosses their path

This is a likeably daft, schlock horror, creature feature.
An underwater earthquake results in the fracture of a crater deep beneath the ocean surface. Prehistoric, giant-sized sand-dwelling sharks escape through the newly formed crevice and are unleashed on the idyllic island resort of White Sands, a small community which relies on Spring Break tourists for a livelihood.
Jimmy is a feckless, thirty-something, layabout beach bum, who's supposed to make a living organising festivals and events for the island. Deputy Sheriff Brenda is the brave and conscientious local law enforcement. Amanda is a stunning, thirty-something brunette, a lawyer for an big investment company which has an interest in the struggling beach resort. Sandy Powers is a leading shark scientist with a passion for her work.
As the shark kills mount, it's left to these four individuals to become reluctant heroes and try to save the day...
This is a very silly, campy and cheesy creature flick, and it's very clearly a fond tribute to the two movies Jaws and Tremors. The story of a small holiday resort community, having to cope with the unwanted publicity from shark attacks, is an unabashed steal from Jaws. The marauding dino-sharks, who live and move about underground through the rocks and sand, are an obvious spin on the carnivorous giant worms in Tremors. The CGI is bargain basement and the acting is ropey. It's obviously a relentlessly dumb, goofy film, but good to watch as a brain-freeze movie, and something of a guilty pleasure.
If you enjoy a laughably silly B-movie monster pic, you'll probably like this film. Other similar films, all of which are great entertainment and better executed than Sand Sharks, include The Blob, Grabbers, The Host, Sharknado 2 and Q: The Winged Serpent.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this review.

Format: DVD
If you like scary, edge-of-your-seat, well crafted creature features - or monster movies with horrifyingly realistic CGI and grade A SFX - pass this one by with a wide berth.
If you like crummy B-movies and ultra-low budget "so bad its good" jobs; the sort of thing you would watch with a raised eye-brow and a smile, while shaking your head dissaprovingly at it over the popcorn - then you'll probably quite like this, because Sand Sharks is one of the "best" worst films Ive seen in a good long while.

The premise is, pretty much, explained by the title and front cover - "prehistoric looking sharks what live in sand chewing on locals and tourists during a spring break party" and is flimsy at best: theres a lame attempt at explaining the science and biology behind it but far from giving it credibility it just makes it more ridiculous. And thats the key selling point - it is a ludicrous yet charmingly bad B movie - and it knows it.

The acting is BEYOND abysmal - theres not a shard of talent among the cast. None of the characters are particularly likeable so you really dont care about any of them or whether they get eaten or not (in fact in most cases you generally hope they do). The script is utterly cringe inducing. The plot (what little there is) is just bonkers, the climax is like "how would that possibly work?!" grade stupid, and the props and special effects are worse than the sort you would see in an episode of Sanctuary or really early Outer Limits, in fact Im pretty sure the deputy sheriff was at one point using an actual cap gun to shoot at a shark fin, which at the same time as being CGI managed to look like it was made of papier mache.

Format: DVD
This is such a low budget movie and is so bad but strangely watchable. I doubt that there are any 'bite' puns that have been left out of this film, the dialogue is littered with them. It's obviously not to be taken seriously, the acting is apalling and the plot is ridiculous. Having said all that, I watched it from beginning to end without a moment's boredom and plenty of laughs. Definitely one to watch if all you want is some light hearted entertainment.

Format: DVD
This ludicrous straight-to-video low-budget comedy horror movie is a bit like a 2012 remake of the 1990 Kevin Bacon film "Tremors [DVD] [1990]" with a previously unknown species of large shark taking the role of the underground monsters.

It ought not to work at all: the plot is even more daft than "Tremors" was, the script does not have nearly as many genuinely memorable lines of funny dialogue, most of the acting is terrible, and the specal effects are worse in the 2012 film than the makers of "Tremors" managed twenty-two years earlier.

However, because the film does not take itself at all seriously and delivers non-stop black humour and action, I found to my surprise that I quite enjoyed watching it once.

I suspect that for most people it would only be a film to watch in company with some friends or your significant other on a night in when you've had something to drink and are in a mood to find something ridiculous to laugh at.

It is set on the quiet island of White Sands, which looks quite like Catalina Island in California, as that it where this was filmed. The island's tourist industry and therefore much of the local economy has been gradually going to hell in a handbasket since an attack in the sea from a more normal type of shark a few years ago scared a lot of the tourists away.

Corin Nemec plays Jimmy Green, son of the local mayor (played by Edgar Allan Poe the IVth) who returns with an idea to rejuvenate the island's economy by organising a huge party, the "Sandman Festival" to attract college students at Spring Break.
