Sand Serpents (2009) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
One night, I was channel surfing and had the misfortune of flipping to the SyFy channel, or however they spell it this week, and came face to face with this steaming pile of crap. The thing that first struck me was the fact that everything was “shaking” like the cameraman was an 8 year old child with ADD and had downed an entire case of RedBull. The little SyFy logo was not shaking, so I figured this wasn’t a problem with my TV or the channel, but a VERY poorly made movie. I assume the plot is a bunch of US Soldiers are in Iraq and are attacked by sandworms, or something. I couldn’t even watch long enough to understand the plot due to many, MANY problems:
1) The already mentioned camera shaking
2) TERRIBLE acting. I mean, REALLY BAD. It’s akin to several drunk stereotypical “frat boys” attempting to act.
3) They obviously had NO consultant on anything military, as one of the first three characters I saw was a female whose uniform had both Ranger and Special Forces tabs. Ok, really? Really??? for those who don’t know, NEITHER Ranger or SF allow females. And below both tabs, her unit patch was ABSENT…so what, now she’s a Delta Operator???
I could go on, but here’s the bottom line…spend $13.49, or whatever they’re attempting to swindle out of you to purchase this movie, on a BETTER movie. There are so many other better acted and directed horror and science fiction movies out there, that there is absolutely NO POINT to EVER pay money, or even waste time watching this. Don’t buy this, don’t rent it, don’t even watch it free on TV. This is yet another movie that never should have been made, or at least should have been edited properly.
