The Sandman, released in 2017, is a supernatural horror movie that involves a vengeful demon seeking to inflict nightmares on the residents of a quiet town. The movie stars Haylie Duff (Nashville) as an unsuspecting local, Tobin Bell (Saw) as a sinister priest, and Shaun Sipos (Vampire Diaries) as a skeptical detective. The film begins with an ominous voiceover, hinting at the origins of the Sandman, a demon who preys on children by entering their nightmares and feeding on their fears. Several years ago, a group of concerned parents managed to defeat the Sandman and banish him to the astral plane. However, now he is back and seeking revenge on those responsible for his exile.

As the story unfolds, we are introduced to Claire (Haylie Duff), a young nurse who discovers the traumatized body of a child in the hospital where she works. At first, it seems like an isolated incident, but soon more children start showing symptoms of extreme anxiety and night terrors. It becomes clear that there is something sinister at play, and Claire is drawn into the mystery alongside Detective Arkin (Shaun Sipos).

Meanwhile, a mysterious priest (Tobin Bell) arrives in town, claiming to have been sent to protect the citizens from the demon. Initially, Arkin is suspicious of the priest's motives, but as the situation becomes more dire, he reluctantly agrees to work with him to try and stop the Sandman.

As the demon's power grows, the town becomes a battleground between good and evil forces. Claire, Arkin, and the priest all face personal demons as they struggle to protect themselves and their loved ones from the Sandman's wrath.

The Sandman is a classic horror tale with a modern twist, as it delves into the realm of dreams and nightmares. The movie has a brooding atmosphere, helped along by the eerie soundtrack and shadowy cinematography.

Overall, The Sandman is a well-crafted horror movie that delivers on scares and suspense. The plot is intriguing, and the characters are well-drawn, making it easy to become invested in their fates.
