Forget About Sharknado, Sharktopus, & 2-Headed Shark … Beware of Ghost Shark!!
Yeah there’s a film coming out on, you guessed it, the Syfy channel titled GHOST SHARK. I’ll let the plot crunch and trailer below speak for themselves, but it seems that the SyFy channel may be finally jumping the shark. How apropos!! GHOST SHARK is directed by Griff Furst (the same director that gave us LAKE PLACID 3, SWAMP SHARK, and ARACHNOQUAKE), is written by Furst, Paul A. Birkett, and Eric Forsberg, and stars Mackenzie Rosman, Richard Moll, Dave Davis, and Sloane Coe. Now brace yourself for the plot crunch and trailer … you may wanna sit down and not be drinking anything:
Last Fourth of July, teenager Christy Bruce disappeared from a high school beach party. Her severed arm washed ashore a day later. Drunken sea captain Blaise Shaw became a hero to the small seaside community of Harmony after killing the great white shark that was deemed responsible, but the Christy Bruce murder was no shark attack. Blaise turns to ghost hunter Ava Conte, who is skeptical but intrigued by his ghost shark ramblings. With preparations for a massive July 4th celebration rapidly approaching, they soon find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy of sex and murder involving the town’s wealthiest and most powerful citizens. Unprepared to contend with a Ghost Shark that can hunt on land, sea, as well as anywhere there is enough water or rain to sustain its phantom form, Blaise and Ava must uncover the truth about the towns dark past or fall victim to the Ghost Shark.
Yup, you read that right. The innocent soul of a falsely accused and tortured shark comes back from The Beyond to exact revenge on everyone. Wow. Now dig on the trailer:
I don’t think anything else needs to be said about this one, and if you’re wondering … of course I’m gonna watch this one!! Watch for the premier on August 22, 2013 on SyFy. By the way, you may notice that there’s a film titled, GHOST SHARK 2: URBAN JAWS that’s set for a 2013 release. This film isn’t connected at all to the upcoming GHOST SHARK and has a “2″ in title simply for narrative reasons, apparently.
For shits and giggles, here’s the poster for GHOST SHARK 2: URBAN JAWS … it’s pretty basic but made me laugh out loud.
Oh what the hell. I’m feeling generous today. Here’s the concept trailer for the film:
Stay Bloody, again!!!
