It Stains the Sands Red
Directed by Colin Minihan
In the throes of a zombie apocalypse, Molly – a troubled woman from Las Vegas with a dark past – finds herself stranded in the desert with a lone ravenous zombie on her tail. At first, she’s easily able to outpace her undead pursuer, but things quickly become a nightmare when she realizes the zombie doesn’t need to ever stop and rest. Running low on supplies and beat down by the harsh environment, Molly will have to summon the strength she never knew she had to ultimately face both the zombie and the demons that have chased her all her life. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

I would never believe this concept could work, despite my adoration of movies that just involve the minimal of characters carrying it like this one does. How the hell do you make a woman being followed by a zombie interesting for a full length feature? Fuck knows. They did it though 🏃♀️🧟♂️ By the end, the only thing I was surprised by was the fact that it went by so fast as you would think a premise like this would drag like an undead left foot in the sand. Brittany Allen was magnificent too. Carried it like a champ she did. 4 skulls 💀❤️💀❤️💀❤️💀
Nice character arc. I actually enjoyed the ending much more than the beginning.
if anyone reads a review telling you the one downside is the ending is wrong the while film was fantastic all the way through great performances from all the cast and a great script with fantastic directing and in my opinion the way they the film ended was a just the cherry on top!
Zombie movies & TV series are ten-a-penny these days so it's nice to see one that approaches the subject from a new angle. Chose this as one of my Halloween movies, no regrets, thoroughly enjoyed it.
This was a refreshing new angle on the zombie genre, blending some nice action and moments of genuine tension with moments of smart funny dialogue. I surprised myself at how much I enjoyed it!
