Shark Day

09 Sep

I woke up yesterday and turned on the television as I was drinking some morning coffee and munching on some morning toast.  I looked at the guide to see what was on, and the SyFy channel happened to catch my eye and cause me to chuckle.

Dinoshark.  A dino-shark hybrid terrorizes a resort in Mexico.

Sounds like a quality film.  But the entertainment didn’t stop there.  Apparently the SyFy channel felt like Saturday was the perfect day to showcase an entire line-up of ridiculous shark movies.  Now I’m not saying that the SyFy channel has a stellar track record of showing good films, but I found this particular shark-focused line-up to be fairly comical.

Sharktopus. A shark-octopus hybrid invades the beaches of Mexico.


Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus. An immensely powerful shark does battle with a primordial croc from Africa.


Malibu Shark Attack.  A Tsunami brings goblin sharks to Malibu, CA to terrorize college students.


Shark Zone.  Great White sharks terrorize a beach community.


Sand Sharks. Prehistoric sand sharks terrorize a beach party. 


2 Headed Shark Attack.  A mutated shark comes back for seconds.


Super Shark.  A monstrous, bulletproof shark that can walk on land terrorizes a beach community.


Shark Swarm.  Sharks attracted to toxic waste terrorize a local community.


Shark Swarm.  (Sure, why not play this one back to back!?)

So this was the line-up of movies that went from 10am to 7am the next morning.  If you’re into sharks or beach communities being terrorized, then I hope you were able to catch a couple of these movies.

And if you have any ideas about making a completely ridiculous shark movie, rest assured that there’s a venue out there that will show that movie.

      I have to say that I didn’t actually watch any of them. I just looked through the guide to see how far they were willing to go with the crazy shark movie theme….turns out, it was pretty far!

      Hahaha. Exactly! I’m sure that they are all quality films!

      Would you say that you’re more interested in seeing beach communities terrorized or monstrous/hybrid sharks? haha

        Ooo tough call! I think beach communities being terrorized takes the cream though! That’s what happened in Jaws, and nothing can beat that film!
