    • Synopsis
    • An underwater earthquake cracks open a crater deep beneath the ocean surface unleashing a prehistoric predator. On the sleepy island of White Sands, local teens drink and party beside a beach bonfire. One of them, wandering off after a pretty girl, disappears leaving only a severed hand behind. It appears it’s been bitten and ripped off by a vicious animal attack. This looks like a shark bite, but it’s found well above the high tide line, it can’t be a shark… Or can it?
      Jimmy Green (Corin Nemec), prodigal party boy and son of the mayor, returns home to White Sands with a scheme to breathe some life into the dying economy (and clear his debt to a mobster) by throwing a huge spring break party, the Sandman Festival. Jimmy runs into his ex, and now Deputy Sherriff, Brenda Young (Vanessa Lee Evigan). She and her brother, the Sherriff, want to close the island beaches in fear of further shark attacks which would ruin Jimmy’s plans. Brenda calls in an expert, shark scientist Dr. Sandy Powers (Brooke Hogan), meanwhile the attacks continue.
      Dr. Powers says it appears to be a sand shark, a beast which moves through the sand as if it was water. By accident, the shark is electrocuted, but it’s soon discovered that the shark, though gigantic, was only a baby. The festival continues, thousands of college kids arrive, just as dozens of sand sharks make their presence known, attracted by the vibrations of the crowd and the PA system. The most menacing beasts to ever rule the waters, now rule the sand; mercilessly feeding on anything that crosses their path. It’s a giant feeding frenzy and it’s up to Brenda, Sandy, the Sheriff, and Jimmy to stop the carnage.
