It’s been said that Marvel maven Stan Lee rarely produces a movie, especially a horror movie. But that is all changed because he’s not only produced a SyFy channel film but a horror one at that.
Premiering on October 14 at 9 pm, The Sandman follows “eight-year-old ‘Madison’ (Shae Smolik) who, when her father is found dead, goes to live with her aunt ‘Claire’ (Haylie Duff), a struggling artist in a nearby city. It isn’t long before Claire realizes that the young girl has unusual powers, including the ability to manifest a frightening boogeyman she calls “The Sandman.” Claire quickly begins to suspect that the Sandman might be responsible not only for the death of Madison’s father, but many other victims across the country.”
“With a clandestine government agency closing in on the young girl, Claire and Madison will have to work together to find a way to stop the Sandman before he claims his next victim. Factor in the sinister ‘Valentine’ (Tobin Bell) who leads a cadre of bureaucrats who do not mean well and soon, strange things start happening whenever Madison is around. Things move around by themselves. Cabinet doors open and close. Almost as if there’s some kind of supernatural entity in the house. It’s a journey you’ll have to fully experience to understand.”
The Sandman is written and directed by Peter Sullivan (Ominous, Summoned) and stars Tobin Bell & Haylie Duff, Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Ricco Ross (Aliens).
The Sandman premieres on SYFY Sat., October 14, 9 pm.
