Plot & Details
First time director/screenwriter Scott Bunt pays tribute to the classic Hammer Studio films of yesteryear and the stylish shockers of director Mario Bava with this gruesome tale of an oppressive evil that washes over a small village of innocents. Inspired by the gruesome legend of Prester John, Sea of Dust traces the monstrous villain's efforts to sacrifice the "psychologically vulnerable" at the alter of evil. A diabolical ideology has been unleashed on the land, and as the young and pure of heart are forced to suffer unimaginable torture, a desperate few set out in search of answers. But time is running out fast, because Prester John (Tom Savini) and his sadistic disciple Anna (Ingrid Pitt) are hell bent on wholesale slaughter. An epic social satire disguised as a blood-soaked Grand Guignol horror film, Sea of Dust features gruesome special effects work by Josh Turi (Wendigo, Unfaithful), and supporting performances from Stuart Rudin (Silence of the Lambs) and Bill Timoney (All My Children).
