Ghost Shark 2013 5 out of 10
On the heels of Sharknado comes Ghost Shark the latest bad shark movie to hit the Syfy channel from the same company that brought us Ghostquake (which was So Bad it was Good) Active Entertainment (I knew I recognized that fat guy in the movie from somewhere). I really wanted to like this bad shark movie and hoped it would be the SO BAD IT is Good movie that Sharknado was. But this one fell short. The story was just too silly and the tone just work. The movie features a shark that is brutally killed after stealing some hillbilly fisherman's fish during fishing contest. The dead shark floats into the mysterious cave near a lighthouse and turns it into a ghost killing machine with no logic whatsoever. The shark spends the rest of the movie killing people near or around any water and I mean anywhere near water. Just because you are a angry Ghost Shark that doesn't give you the right to break the laws of all reason and start appearing in bath tubs, leaking sink drains, pool parties, bikini car washes (okay well I give them that) and most outrageous of all....in a cup of water. The Ghost Shark literally gets inside someone that drinks a cup of water and splits him in two.
Here is the Ghost Shark eating a fat kid on a slip and slide.
I can't explain it. What makes a movie turn the corner. This one just didn't work for me. I guess sharks flying around in Tornadoes is fine but Ghost Sharks jumping out of buckets of water NOT SO MUCH. This one the trailer is definitely better than the movie.
