Tonight starring John Saxon
David Huffman
Mariana Hill
Southern California means golden sand, blue seas and happy suntanned people taking in the 'rays'. But not on this beach ...
Something nasty is eating the sun worshippers, lurking underneath the sand, waiting to suck the unwary down to a grisly death much to the consternation of the local police.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water you can't get across the beach in one piece!
Produced by STEVEN NAVELANSKY Written and directed by JEFFREY BLOOM
