There's Something In The Desert And These Soldiers Are STRANDED ...
Here's one for fans of military themed horror - the Sandra and Hugues Martin directed Stranded.

Soon to be released as Djinns in its native France, the film features an ensemble cast of soldiers - including District B13 star Cyril Raffaelli - on a mission to retrieve a mysterious briefcase from a downed airplane in the Algerian desert who discover the hard way that humans aren't the only things living there ... here's the official synopsis:

The North African Desert of the Sahara - 1960. Soldiers are sent on a rescue mission in the desert.  Trapped in a sand storm, isolated from their commander, they run into Algerian rebels.  As they seek shelter in an uncharted village another, invisible, threat comes out from the desert -- the Djinns.  As their ranks are decimated, they'll face the longest night of their lives.

The full trailer has just arrived and you can find it below.

I dig the Djinn effect.

Couldn't they find a more nondescript generic title, like "Desert Ghosts" or something?

sounds and looks an awful lot like Red Sands

Looks pretty good, but I would have preferred they stuck with the name 'Djinns' for international release as well.

Personally I would have kept the title at Djinns.

This looks interesting. I was expecting a Djinn in the style of Wishmaster and... bam - some sandy ghosts. Gotta check this movie out.

Agree, of course, but if you HAVE to change the title (and indeed I fail to see the reason in this case) at least don't take something as humdrum as "Stranded".
