The Scyfy channel don't do horror originals very often, and that's a shame because more often than not when they do they're quite good.
The Sandman is somewhat similiar to Before I Wake (2016). It tells the story of a girl with telekinetic powers who has somehow brought The Sandman into reality who kills anyone that threatens her.
Starring Haylie Duff (Who is far better than I expected), Tobin "Jigsaw" Bell and Paul Logan (Though he may as well not have been cast) this horror effort once again shows that Scyfy should should do more horror.
With a great looking beastie, decent performances and a well delivered concept this was a lot of fun. It's ending is a tad sudden and it's not overwhelmingly original but it's forgiven due to it's decent entertainment value.
Sandman looks and sounds great
Very sudden ending
One very bad cgi scene
Couple of bits were never explained
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Instead of renewing their access to shows like Xena & Wonderwoman the Scyfy channel should use that money to make more horror originals
I want a Sandman bodyguard!
