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.Read more ›
some great one liners and superb deaths.
id recommend this to anyone who enjoys a bit of fun
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.Read more ›
My main reason for giving this a 3* rating is that I was sufficiently impressed by Ms Evigan's and Brooke Hogan's performances to hope that I might see them in something that gives them a decent script to work with. I mean this is basically Jaws with the serial numbers filed off, a dash of Tremors. and a few in-joke references to attempt to earn a "comedy" tag.

I would have given it five stars but I'd be embarrassed to. The acting resembles wood, the script is horrible, but in some bizarre, unfathomable way, it's compelling viewing.Published 7 months ago by Velo Mitrovich
