It Stains the Sands Red (USA/Canada, 2016)

A fancy dressed woman followed by a zombie in the desert.

Still from It Stains the Sands Red.

It Stains the Sands Red is quite an interesting and rather original Zombie flick. At the start I thought I knew where it was heading, but then it headed somewhere else entirely.

Also this is not a roller-coaster of a film, it keeps the pace low and takes its time. The characters (of which one is a Zombie!) get the time to grow and develop. One foot after the other, so to speak. The main actress Brittany Allen is definitely what carries the film, and her character Molly’s transformation through the movie is what makes this film such an interesting watch.

Very much a surprise viewing for me. It was included as a bonus feature on the Blu-Ray for What Keeps You Alive (2018) also with Brittany Allen and from the same director (Colin Minihan). I first thought this was a short film bonus feature, but it clocks in on almost exactly 1 hour and 30 minutes plus credits.

A great watch! Very much recommended!
