It Stains the Sands Red is a 2016 Canadian-American horror film directed by Colin Minihan. It stars Brittany Allen as a woman relentlessly pursued through the desert outside of Las Vegas by a single zombie.
During a zombie apocalypse, Las Vegas residents Molly and Nick are on their way to meet up with some friends at a remote airfield in order to catch a plane ride out of the country. Their car gets stuck in the sand, and a lone zombie kills Nick. Molly continues across the desert on foot, all the while pursued by the slow-moving but persistent zombie.
Filming took place at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada.
It began a limited theatrical release on July 28, 2017.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "Genre fans will likely have a hard time coming to terms with this tonally confused and sometimes grating film, whose commercial prospects are limited despite the appeals it makes to some underserved audiences".
