On a lonely, two-lane highway in southern Nevada, Molly and her boyfriend Nick have put Las Vegas – and the encroaching zombie apocalypse – in their rearview mirror. Alas, during an unexpected stop, a lone traveler stumbles into sight, and Nick scrambles for his gun in the glove compartment. Poor aim, an empty clip and a rut in the sand leave the couple trapped in their car, and face to face with their darkest fears.

When things take a turn for the worst, Molly will have to summon the strength she never knew she had to face both the zombies and the demons that have chased her all her life. As she’s pursued by the threatening yet slow-moving creatures relentlessly on her trail, the film becomes a character study of victims, both monster and human — a zombie humanised with a happy past, and a woman desensitised by a more troubled one. Featuring a powerhouse performance from lead Brittany Allen, writer-director Colin Minihan, one half of the Vicious Brothers (Grave Encounters, Extraterrestrial), offers a unique and visceral take on the classic zombie narrative.

“A refreshing new zombie film that is the perfect antithesis to The Walking Dead. It’s smart, funny, scary, and oh so entertaining.” – Mark Pacis, Nerd Reactor.

“It Stains The Sands Red fires on all cylinders. The makeup, music, and production are top notch. It just goes to show that there are still new tales of the undead to be told and indie cinema is where to find them.” – Mark Krawczyk, We Live Entertainment.

“The best zombie movie since Shaun of the Dead.” – Scream Magazine
