    Synopsis


    Sands of Oblivion
    In 1923, after acclaimed director Cecil B. de Mille completed the first version of his Biblical epic The Ten Commandments, an odd event occurred that generated a wealth of speculation and mystery: de Mille - having shot on multi-million dollar sets to rival nearly anything in prior movie history - promptly traveled to the sand dunes on the California coast and buried his sets there. For nearly a century, the reasons belying this odd series of actions remained clouded in obscurity. Now, with his documentary Sands of Oblivion, filmmaker David Flores finally uncovers the truth: de Mille, it seems, acquired the majority of artifacts for the film on actual Middle Eastern burial grounds. The items included an odd prayer bowl, allegedly cursed with the spirit of Im-La-Ra - the god of chaos and fear. Certainly few other explanations could account for the devastating experiences had by the workers on the film crew - experiences that included devastating maniacal visions, sudden insanity and loss of control that led to murder. With Sands of Oblivion, Flores travels to the site of the initial burial and excavates the items once again, with a team of archaeologists, to investigate the truth behind these legendary events. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

      I tried to give ZERO stars, but this system wouldn't allow it. The beginning of the movie hooked me into thinking that the plot might develop into at least a entertaining movie. The general plot ought to have given rise to a movie like "The Mummy," but even that hope was soon demolished by the unbelievably bad acting. This movie is one to bypass at all costs. Even if it is offered to you free of charge, tell em no thanks..... A good nap will be far more entertaining.

      This movie is ok for the sale price but I would not pay to much. The acting was really terrible and it even made me laugh out loud. It was a hard movie to watch and I cant really say I recommend it. I would put my money into a better movie because this is pretty much a stinker.

      This is actually a better B movie than most people will tell you. It has it's moments.
