Summary: After an all-night graduation beach party, a group of hung-over twenty-somethings awake to a beating sun, and a seemingly carnivorous beach that devours anything with a heartbeat that touches the sand.
Genre: Sci-fi, Horror

Watched: September 6th, 2016

I was tempted to add comedy to the genre because this film is absolutely hilarious. This is definitely one of the best worst films I've seen this year, I could tell within the first 5 minutes that this wasn't going to be anything special.

The main thing for me that ruined the film was 100% the acting. It's incredibly difficult to watch a film when the acting is so bad, everything was super dramatic, way more then it needed to be so much so that I couldn’t take any of the characters seriously.

Probably the most painful scene in terms of the acting happens quite early on with Ronnie's (Cynthia Murell) incredibly over dramatic cries of "Baby" after her boyfriend is trapped by the sand.

There was also Gilbert (Cleo Berry), the stereotypical fat guy brought in for some comedic relief, but he actually doesn't have anything to offer whatsoever. Unlike the other characters who are at least given a little something to do, Gilbert is put to the side and stuck in a barrel for pretty much the whole movie.

Even though I didn't think the film was any good, the story to be honest isn't all that bad, it's actually quite an interesting idea that could have been done so much better. Not only was it ruined by the absolutely awful acting but it was also ruined by the whole relationship storyline that came up unnecessarily at random times.

Rating: 5/10
One Final Word: So rubbish it's brilliant!
