An interesting, but very flawed film. Quite difficult to get a handle on... In some ways, the film goes further than you would ordinarily expect, in others, it seems entirely prudish.
However, the atmosphere is suitably melancholic...
Worth a watch, if you like your Zombie movies laced with romanticism. And I know there's a lot of you about...
Odean released this a couple of years back. I believe there's also a (deleted) Redemption VHS knocking around.

Didn't see any flaws in this one, it's an absolute favourite of mine and left me feeling unwell for days.

It starts out like a Mills and Boon romance novel adaptation, and slowly turns into something extremely eerie. Worth it for the stunning coastal scenery alone, and the 'returning lover' creeped me out almost beyond words.

I've never read a Mill and Boon romance but I remember trying to get through Gordon Honeycombe's novel of this and getting bored pretty quickly.  I have the original Image disc somewhere around here (not the Redemption reissue but I think they're basically the same).

Strange to think that this is the same Gordon Honeycombe who used to read the morning news on TVAM back in the mid 80's.

Not being from the UK, I had only heard of him referenced as being a TV presenter so I thought it strange that he should then write something like NEITHER THE SEA NOR THE SAND.  Having looked him up, it appears that he was a stage actor and writer before he was a TV presenter.

By a strange coincidence, the book cover makes a perfect fit for a DVD sleeve.

The downside is that it looks like I have a massive Gordon Honeycombe novel mixed in with my DVD's  ???
