Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
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
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…
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.
Nearly hits two stars for featuring one of my favorite (species) of horror villains (sharks!), but is pulled down for literally every other thing about it.
When Steven Spielberg brought out jaws any movie made after it had some mighty big fins to fill. Luckily most don't try to be Jaws and instead do their own thing. How good that "thing" is, well, that's up to the film maker. Shark Night never really accomplishes anything correctly. When one of the characters who's going to Tulane is described as a top ten draft pick you knew the movie was going to have some problems.
The premise is a group of friends who attend Tulane University go to one of their friend Sara's vacation home on a beautiful private lake. Sadly there is no cell phone reception on this lake island and no land line either I suppose.…
Ok.... Where do I start...
This film... Wait, this got a theatrical release, didn't it!? I mean, it was in 3D, so it must have been in theatres.... My condolences to those that actually paid to see this.... What a piece of shit!!!
I mean, how do I start to explain the levels of idiocy that this film so blatantly exhibits. The CG is shit. the actors are shit. The plot is shit. The sharks are shit. The fact that there's no proper nudity is shit. That music video after the credits is shit to the Nth degree.... Please, don't leave as the credits roll as you'll miss out on this awesome display of how multi-talented our group of actors…
This isn't a real movie. This is the movie people in movies go to see. Congrats all I may have just proved that we're Sims.
Why did I even bother watching this? I said three times out loud "This is stupid" during this film. Its not even stupid in a trainwreck kind of way, just flat out stupid. I was multitasking while watching it, so at least it didn't have my full attention.
Despite being possibly guilty of some racist tropes and stereotypes, this is surprisingly good fun actually. Well no one else here is going to admit it. I picked it up for 50 pence at a boot sale thinking my young daughter would enjoy it and we all watched it tonight on the projector. And as it happens it turned out to be quite an enjoyable bit of old bunkum. Particularly with a Hobgoblin and a large bag of pretzels at my disposal.
CGI Shark bollocks
"There are sharks in the water, what should we do? Yes, enter in the water, great idea!"
That's basically the logic of this people xD
Some cute boys, some cute girls, sharks... With these ingredients it could have made a better movie, at least I expected more, but I enjoyed it anyway. Seeing how people is devoured by sharks is always fun.
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…
Boat/Lake/Ocean/River/Ship/Submarine/Swamp Based Horror Films. Adding to my collection of "Horror Film Locations" lists, you can find more horror films sorted…
