2.0 out of 5 stars Terrorists and Prehistoric Worms??, 8 Mar 2011
This review is from: Sand Serpents [DVD] [2009] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (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'.
