BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
What a different zombie film this was! Damn, I wasn't expecting it to be so thoughtful! "In the throes of a zombie apocalypse, a troubled woman from Las Vegas with a dark past finds herself stranded in the desert with a lone and ravenous zombie on her tail."
It Stains The Sands Red pretty much starts out like any other horror, a fairly average, sometimes annoying couple get into a wee bit of trouble right at the beginning of the film after having fun and talking and chatting about how happy they are. That old chestnut of a cliche, but it's a good cliche, one that always works.
The couple has trouble, and all a sudden, while stranded, they see a man walking towards them, long story short, he's a member of the undead, and boyfriend is killed. From that moment on, the film changes completely, and goes from your typical zombie horror to a very thought out underrated gem.
It Stains The Sands Red is incredibly original in its concept, it takes a part of a zombie film that no one has ever really thought of; the fact that zombies are the undead and don't actually need to stop and rest or any of the sorts, and it runs with it. Molly is being chased by the zombie and he is relentless, and of course he would be, HE'S UNDEAD. Of course he doesn't need to rest, he's just following Molly, I assume, due to the fact he is peckish for a little bit of human flesh. I say assume as I feel zombies change in stories and films, and some waste away and some don't, I don't with to discriminate against any zombies.
Another incredibly original concept to this film is the fact that are one point, Molly and the zombie create a friendship, an actual friendship. It's a bit like a longer scene of the end scene of Shaun of the Dead, where they are sitting in the shed playing games - fairly similar to that, which is kind of cute... In an undead sort of way. She goes from being chased by him for miles to actually saving his undead life from the army, and he does the same in another scene that really shows how cruel human kind can be in dire times.
I highly recommend It Stains The Sand Red, if you love your zombie films, welcome to one that is insanely and makes you think in ways you've never thought of before, regarding zombies. And tampons do come into play too, in a very different way than you think - periods are mentioned, brave move!
I like this film!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
