Sand Sharks is a 2012 American action horror film directed by Mark Atkins (Empire of the Sharks; Planet of the Sharks; Evil Eyes; et al). It stars Corin Nemec, Brooke Hogan and Vanessa Lee Evigan.
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…
“Shock news! Sand Sharks isn’t terrible. Despite the name, plot, characters, actors and dialogue, Sand Sharks is loveably idiotic and an absolutely, ridiculously shameless horror film. Fun with friends and a bellyful of alcohol, this is not a “good” horror movie but certainly a good laugh.” Scullion, Gore Press
” …there are all of twenty people at the supposedly thousand-strong “party.” With no gore or nudity, it even fails as an exploitation piece. A man runs around in circles singing “row row row your boat”, undoing any of the goodwill earned by the Ride of the Valkyries montage only moments beforehand.” Joel Harley, HorrorTalk
“Whereas Jaws was a pretty awesome film, and Piranha a good natured, tongue in cheek Jaws rip-off, Sand Sharks is just a plain old waste of time. It’s like a bunch of crack-up teenagers decided it would be mega-rad to make an “ironic” reboot of Spielberg’s old-timey hit, and not even bothered to watch it in the first place.” MacReady, Love Horror
