SYNOPSIS

Op de vlucht voor een zombie apocalypse, strandt Molly, moeder en losgeslagen junk met een duister verleden, in de woestijn van Nevada. Maar ze is niet alleen. Ze wordt op de hielen gezeten door een hardnekkige, zeg maar, springlevende ondode. Eerst kan ze haar strompelende achtervolger makkelijk voorblijven. Maar de zombie hoeft nooit te rusten en de verzengende zon, honger en dorst eisen al snel hun tol. Gaandeweg wordt Molly ook geconfronteerd met de demonen die haar al haar hele leven kwellen...

Regisseur Colin Minihan (Grave Encounters 1 & 2, Extraterrestrial) blaast het zombiegenre nieuw leven in met deze gefocuste en gestoorde mix van psychologisch drama, buddy movie en horror, die beurtelings doet denken aan genrepareltjes als Train to Busan, Maggie en Swiss Army Man. Inventief, bloedstollend, bijwijlen dodelijk grappig en ja, zelfs hartverwarmend. Brittany Allen (Saw: Legacy, Extraterrestrial) is een openbaring.


REVIEWS

  • HeYuGuys.com: Thrilling, fascinating, groundbreaking. It's a remarkable work for film fans in general, as well as being one of the greatest zombie movies ever made.
  • SciFiNow.co.uk: A mannered mix of the odd-couple corpse comedy of Swiss Army Man (2016) and the arid maternity ordeal of Monolith (2016), It Stains The Sand Red offers a fresh feminist spin on well-trodden tropes, only reverting to a more conventional kickass routine in its wisely abbreviated final act.
  • Bloody-disgusting.com: Brittany Allen carries the entire film with aplomb, and her performance is up there with the best the genre has had to offer in recent years. Her transformation from fractured party girl to strong, independent mother is fiercely brilliant and believable. At this moment in time, It Stains the Sands Red is the best zombie film since Shaun of the Dead.
  • Glasgowlive.co.uk: Allen is incredible as she displays layers and emotions we don't normally expect from characters who tend to simply be fodder for the walking dead. Director Minihan (Grave Encounters, Extraterrestrial) has performed a masterstroke with It Stains the Sands Red. His direction, coupled with Allen's performance, makes for a winning combination that puts a beating heart in the chest of the undead.
  • Nerdly.co.uk: A taught, tense (and funny) reinvigoration of the zombie genre, It Stains the Sands Red honestlydeserves to be held in as high a regard as Romero's original zombie trilogy. **** 4/5
  • Horror Channel FrightFest: Smart, sharp, savage and unexpectedly moving. The most original zombie movie since 28 Days Later.
  • Horrorfreaknews.com: With a tremendously watchable and heartfelt lead performance, a wholly unique and unexpected central relationship and a damn good sense of humor (the tire/raft reveal) – It Stains the Sands Red is original and endearing. A shining example that there's something new to be culled from the genre created by George A. Romero almost 50 years ago.
