Claustrophobic and Tense

In the Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan, the Staff Sergeant Marcus Howston (Leonard Roberts) is assigned to stay temporary based in the desert nearby Kabul with six other soldiers guarding a road that they can not see from Al Qaeda. While patrolling the desert, they find a millenary temple with a stone carved idol; their translator Gregory Wilcox (Callum Blue) explains that worshippers come to that place to idolize Djinn, a race that have hatred for humans and was made by Allah from the smokeless flame in the beginning of the times in accordance with the Islam and pre-Islamic Arabian folklore. One racist soldier shots the statue that falls apart, unleashing a supernatural force. They camp in an abandoned house and during a sand storm, a Muslim woman (Mercedes Masöhn) comes out of the blue. Sooner they find that their truck was sabotaged and their communication broke down. The group stranded in the middle of nowhere gets mad and they are consumed by their sins and guilty. "Red Sands" is a claustrophobic and tense psychological horror movie, with a great surrealistic story that can be interpreted as a madness process of a group of soldiers stranded in a place that they do not understand the culture and the language. There are many racist and stupid dialogs and situations, like when the sexist soldier shots an archaeological site, but what else could the viewer expect from invaders under stress? The distributor Sony of Brazil shows a total lake of respect with the Brazilian consumers, releasing a shameful DVD without subtitles in Portuguese. My vote is seven. Title (Brazil): "Força Maligna" ("Malign Force")

decent film

I thought that it was a decent movie. i wish there were more army/horror films it makes a good genre. overall acting is decent and storyline was a little slow but not bad by any means. i have read bad reviews all over the net for this film ,but i enjoyed this movie . it has great visuals and atmosphere that keep your interest throughout. so as you can tell i think everyone should watch this and see . i joined IMDb just so i could comment on this because i was going to watch this then all the sites i belong to had negative comments on it so i never watched , but then i got bored and finally watched it and i was impressed.

Surprisingly good

Afganisthan war has introduced a new figure to cinema : Djinn. In the past ,"Wish Master" was also a djinn story but mostly a teenage movie. Solders alone in an unknown country, meeting a very different culture, traditions will give many material for movies. This picture is well made, moderate gore, but dark or yellowish scenes create a wonderful atmosphere. Acting is acceptable. Scenario is good when compared with The Objective (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0962711/). End is not confusing. Dialogues are very clean. Thrilling atmosphere is always at a certain level. Effects are very good.To tell the truth I didn't expected such a movie when I touched play button of my player. Highly recommended . 7 points.
