    It Stains the Sands Red (film)

    Looks pretty interesting.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    Hmmm...

    Their car gets stuck in the sand and they need "wood" to put under the wheels ... naturally they don't have any - yeah, but what about the thousands of pieces of scrub brush all around them. Yank them out of the ground, stuff 'em under the wheels, and get going!

    Or just push the car...

    Or start on second gear...

    Or a combination of all three.

    Why am I thinking "It Follows" with a zombie?
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Why am I thinking of The Silence of the Lambs? "It stains the sands red or else it gets the hose again!"

    I just saw this one. It is a pretty unusual zombie flick, considering that despite the fact that it happens during a zombie apocalypse we only see one zombie all through about 3/4 of the movie. The zombies are of the Romero/Fulci type: they do not run (but can walk a bit faster than in the Romero and Fulci flicks, where they moved at a snail's pace) and only die by destroying their brains. However, some of them might still retain some lingering degree of "humanity" (there is obviously some Day of the Dead influence here. We even see one of the zombies get killed by drilling a hole through its head.) There is also an even more obvious tribute to Romero towards the end of the movie, where we see a page of the "Las Vegas Times" on the devastated streets announcing that "The Dead Walk" (imagery obviously taken from Day) and that FEMA has confirmed that "the bodies of the recently dead are returning to life and attacking the living" (quote taken verbatim from Night of the Living Dead.) There is some amount of gore in the movie, but the filmmakers do not try to overdo it or "out-gore" anyone.

    It's sorta not bad. But it loses the run of itself, has a number of logic failures and it's clear they had no idea how to actually end the film.

    Did Stephen King write it?
