December 13, 2008 Here's an interesting new horror flick. In 2009, director Alex Turner returns to the genre with "Red Sands," written by Simon Barrett. This duo previously brought us the Lovecraftian Civil War tale Dead Birds. In their latest effort Brendan Miller, Shane West, Aldis Hodge, Theo Rossi and Noel Gugliemi are soldiers serving in the Middle East. When they destroy a statue, they're visited by a malevolent force.
