Terror runs deep.
A weekend at a lake house in the Louisiana Gulf turns into a nightmare for seven vacationers as they are subjected to fresh-water shark attacks.
The final film of Sharkweek.
Looking back I can honestly say something weird has happened. Apart from the fact that most shark based films are apparently synonymous for crap, I noticed a deep and profound change within me.
Picture in your mind's eye a shark for me. A majestic and horrific animal, a ruler of the oceans and assuredly one of the most dangerous predators on the planet. Sharks are animals that have evolved purely to hunt and kill, it is their main function in the circle of life. I have always admired and regarded in awe the gracious nature of this beast's killer instinct.
After Letterboxd Sharkweek I can honestly and without…
Okay. So. Your friend has just been mauled to death in a shark infested lake, and while on the boat....YOU LEAN OVER THE FUCKING EDGE?! How STUPID can these people be?!? A lot stupider, as it turns out. That's not the most idiotic thing these fucking cretins do. I think a George Carlin quote is necessary here, I'll paraphrase it a tad:
"Think of how stupid the average person is, and then realise, all the characters in Shark Night are stupider than that!"
But then again, it does make the film a whole lot better when everyone is stupid so we see them fall to their deserved watery graves.
Also. Shark Night, you are pushing the borders of racial stereotyping.…
they tried to take the plot in a new direction, you have to admire that
only the new direction was fucking retarded
Shark Night? Well that's a bit drab, isn't it?
Sharkpocalypse Sharkening: Shark A Shark.
See? Meow there's a title with some pep.
I’ve become immune to bad shark movies having watched one too many Asylum produced efforts over the last few years. It is for this reason that Shark Night was not quite as offensive as it probably should have been. It is unquestionably a bad movie yet the surprising thing is that it tries, but ultimately fails, not to be. It attempts to develop characters that would normally be one-dimensional but the problem is the actors are incapable of delivering convincing emotional and rounded performances.
Yet the bigger problem with Shark Night is that it is so pedestrian. It is almost as if it is a family friendly edit for a more traditional B-movie. This means the film fails to deliver…
I mainly watched this for Sara Paxton, who was amazing in The Innkeepers. I wasn't expecting much, but it was a pretty damn fun popcorn movie! More straightforward and much less pervy than Piranha 3D. Lots of amazing sharky things, like one JUMPS OUT OF THE WATER AND EATS A GUY OFF A SPEEDBOAT and a bit where the angry black guy wades into the water with his arm stump loosely bandaged and determined to spear the shark that killed his girlfriend to death but he gets the wrong one. Hilarious. A good time.
Το σκοπό της τον πέτυχε πάντως. Γελάσαμε μέχρι δακρύων.
"Shark still looks fake" - Marty Mcfly.
Cage goes into water. Dumb ass kids go into the cage in the water. Sharks in the water.
Not enough gore, and NO NUDITY!?
But all around alright for a waste of an hour and a half.
Movie #3 of Bad Movie Month.
Someone didn't do their research, many of these sharks couldn't have survived in fresh water, and not in a lake. Ridiculous cliche Horror, with all the generic cliches of a generic Horror film and no real fun, not even when the sharks attack.
When a group of school friends visit the Louisiana bayous for a weekend party, they discover that the water is the most dangerous place to be.
The killer shark genre are a weird breed of movies that, apart from Jaws, invariably end up being very, very bad, but they never seem to go away. Shark Night is an odd entry as (to it's credit) it tries to do something different from the usual story lines that you have seen it the past. The plot moves along at a healthy rate and even though the beginning is a pretty standard affair, things take a bit of a twist about three quarters of the way in, and though it is all becomes…
Just leave Sharks alone!
Trying too hard.
Why is Jaws the only shark movie that is any good. How can they not make another decent shark movie. One good thing with this movie is I learned that you can get your arm bitten off, reenter the water, kill a shark, and live for 48 hrs. without any problem
Utter drivel but enjoyable drivel with a pleasant twist and a great fun Sheriff part played by Donal Logue. It's Sharknado meets Deliverance from the guy who brought you the equally fun but throw-away Final Destination.
