aka Nazi Vengeance
During a past-life regression, 26 year-old Ralph experiences being a Nazi commando in Britain in 1940. In the hope of piecing together his previous life, he goes on a camping trip to the locations he saw in his regression. But the past Ralph is trying to find is now stalking him, and it plans to exact a terrible revenge for crimes committed nearly seventy years ago. Starring the legendary Julian Glover (Indiana Jones and the last Crusade, The Empire Strikes Back, For Your Eyes Only), BACKTRACK is a considered and intelligent psychological horror that explores intriguing themes.
BACKTRACK was Tom's debut and was completed in 2014. It can currently be seen on Netflix UK under the title Nazi Vengeance. It has been released across Europe and Asian under similar titles.
Currently available in North America, UK, Germany, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, China, South Korea.
"There’s lots of interesting flourishes in the visuals – particularly during the hallucinations Ralph experiences with elements of the image become blurred, highlighting the blurring of reality in his mind – and although hardly seen until the climax, veteran Julian Glover is as fabulous as one would expect."
"This is Tom Sands’ first feature film, and yet [he] shows his talents with a smooth production… the film gains many good marks, once again proving that large budgets (are) not always needed when the screenplay drives a compelling movie… This movie really drives a brutal and realistic storyline, with many special gems, and wonderful cinematography of many moments."
"This is an original story, well directed and well acted, that should entertain you... Excellent job to all involved with this one."
BRUTAL AS HELL
"[Backtrack] is an ambitious first film from a director with big ideas"
"[Backtrack] is a rather interesting thriller indeed... you will be rewarded with a weird tale of crime and punishment where the lines between good and evil are more than just a little blurry, carried by an atmospheric directorial effort"
