The son of the mayor of a sleepy beach town returns to try to make some money by throwing a beach party for college students on vacation. Always in trouble, Jimmy (the mayors son) lurches from one problem to the next, compounded by the appearance of the titular 'Sand Sharks', which wreak havok on the town.

You know what you're getting into when you put this in your player - this is a cheap monster horror (a comedy horror actually) with lots of budget digital effects and a ludicrous story. But this film knows how silly it is and plays up to it, quite often descending into camp, but the story is told with enough skill to make it a bit of fun if you allow yourself to go with it. Yes, it's all just too stupid, but seeing shark fins swimming around in the sand is original and it makes you wonder how much the filmmakers will try to get away with (quite a bit in reality....).

There are a number of actors that you will probably have seen in other budget productions and they just seem to go along with the story and have a bit of fun - even when someone throws a bucket of fake blood all over them.....

In regard to the special effects - the shark fins on the sand can be quite good and some of the sharks seen diving out of the sand are OK although most of the shots of sharks 'flying' are pretty awful. But I guess it just adds to the fun.

Quite a bit of time is spent on the worlds lamest beach party with the college students supposed to be dancing on the beach, but they really didn't seem to know what they were doing and much of the time groups of them just stand around looking awkward. And when the sharks turn up to eat them they just run in all sorts of directions (stupidly), again not seeming to know what they are supposed to do. It seems like the Director didn't try to direct these scenes and just let the extras do whatever they thought should be done. Of course, this just adds to the stupidity of the film but it's great for a laugh nonetheless.

Somehow it all seems to hold together better than most of these cheap monster movies but it is let down by the ridiculous ending which seems to have been the least thought about part of the entire production. But if you like cheap monster movies, you might have some fun with this one.

Excellent film. Full of action. Its the first time I've seen Sharks swimming in sand. I wasn't aware they could lol. It was spectacular how they killed them in the end. Definitely worth watching.

Everything Animasola says is pretty valid.

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.

Arrived quickly, perfect quality. And as a fan of these kinds of movies I loved it. It had everything, bad acting, ridiculous storyline and tonnes of crazy sharks.

I expected this film to be rubbish and it was mostly so, with inferior special effects (considering when it was shot) and even more inferior acting. But I will say that some of the young women in their bikinis more than made up for its downside. I would recommend buying a secondhand cheaper version though, to save money.

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.

Excellent delivery, dvd in perfect condition. The film itself is pretty awful, it's only saving grace are the effects.
