The story of this movie is really basic. It’s a revenge film, kinda like Jaws 2. You see there are two fishermen that are trying to win some fishing contest and as they are reeling in their final catch (that could win the contest) a shark eats the fish. The hillbilly fisherman gets really pissed off and decides to kill the shark. He uses a crossbow and some hot sauce (nope, I’m not kidding) to hurt the shark and his partner (daughter or girlfriend, I really don’t know) finally uses a grenade to kill it. So the shark comes back as a ghost and goes around killing anyone that is close to water. So it’s up to Ava Conte (Mackenzie Rosman), Blaise Shaw (Dave Randolph-Mayhem Davis) and their friends to end the ghost shark forever.
So when I say that it kills anyone that is close to water I should actually be a bit clearer. You see, the best part about being a “ghost shark” is that you can use any body of water to emerge from. So it can be a lake, pond or even a swimming pool. Yep, anything that has water can be where the ghost shark is hiding. Some of the other great spots where it appears is a Slip N’ Slide, a bucket of water and a cup of water. Great…just great!
This movie is just fun. That’s it. The acting is fine and the effects are pretty bad, but in the end it’s something new and it’s a whole lot of fun.Have You Read...?
