  • The Sandman: Good effort
    December 29, 2017

    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.

    The Good:

    Sandman looks and sounds great

    Tobin Bell

    The Bad:

    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!
