Movie Review by Dash Riprock
April 21st, 2010

Blood Beach's Scare Never Makes It Beyond The Sand

Blood Beach is the sort of B-Grade Horror film that literally cries out, no, screams (at the top of its lungs) for huge portions of sex and violence. But unfortunately this film fails to deliver much when it comes to either of these 2 highly essential "horror movie" ingredients.

Filmed on location at a Santa Monica beach, during the height of Summer, a giant, burrowing monster, with a ferocious appetite for well-tanned human flesh, sets up house in a cave directly below the surface of the sand.

This nasty, insatiably famished creature (which is cleverly kept completely concealed until the film's big finale to obviously save on production costs) just loves to munch away on the sun-worshipping beach bums and bunnies who hang out on the beach all day long. Some of the victims (the rejects, I guess) are found horribly mutilated, but most are simply sucked down into the sand, quickly disappearing without a trace.

Police-Captain Pearson and his sidekick, Sargeant Royko (a couple of real clueless dimwits) are soon on the job, investigating monster-related matters in their own bungling way.

Blood Beach certainly could've been a whole lot better, and gorier, too (with a much bigger budget). And with the predictable way that Blood Beach ended it was so plainly obvious to see that it was just setting itself up for a sequel, which, I'm pleased to say, never happened.
