Our new favorite worst film might have emerged with Shark Encounters Of The Third Type getting all kinds of anti-praise this week.
Simply when we thought Arachnado took the cake for probably the most horrendous-looking launch since Sharknado, now we’ve obtained Jaws meets aliens, apparently.
Isn’t that the heady combination our faltering cinema-scene is lacking?
Dubbed a ‘sci-fi horror’, the plot of this one centres round a bunch of hostile aliens that crash land on the backside of the ocean, and, by way of thoughts management, after all, use sharks to terrorise a small city filled with secrets and techniques within the hopes of finishing their invasion.
Clearly impressed by two Steven Spielberg classics, Jaws and Shut Encounters of the Third Type clearly encourage this title.
In line with IMDB this probably-destined-to-be-cult-classic was made on a shoestring finances of $30,000 (£22.7k), which is chump change within the grand scheme of Hollywood, with Jurassic Prey’s Mark Polonia on the helm.
In case you wanted a shining instance of Polonia’s different works, we’ve obtained Splatter Farm, Amityville Exorcism, Splatter Seashore and Land Shark, to call a number of.
Know what you’re in for now?
The trailer landed on YouTube some time in the past – the movie is definitely out now, being launched on DVD just lately, must you need to partake in the entire delight – and is, er, intriguing to say the least.
Whereas the poster has big sharks attacking plane in area, the fact is extra down-to-Earth, with the trailer exhibiting us what occurs once you combine the ocean and area in a sleepy US coastal city.
‘Sharks have been dangerous this time of yr,’ one of many character says. Yeah, little doubt.
Mentioned character then inspects what we assume to be a sufferer earlier than discovering the marks don’t seem like from a shark’s chunk however as an alternative they seemed to be burns.
That is how the aliens management the sharks, apparently
Cue an entire heap of dodgy CGI lightening bolts into the ocean, which is the place, we suppose, the aliens have began to infiltrate and management their sea of shark minions to wreak sharky havoc. We even catch a glimpse of those aliens that are positively not individuals simply sporting gray skull-caps.
Followers observing the trailer this week reacted to the vibe of the entire thing, with one writing: ‘Okay…so clearly at this level they only take ‘Shark’ after which throw a dart at a bunch of phrases and BAM thats the film they make.’
One, who had seemingly learn our story on Arachnado, shared they had been fairly fed up with these low-budget horrors.
‘These low finances motion pictures had been charming at first however the lustre has worn off. Name them what they’re, trash motion pictures,’ they wrote. ‘This simply seems to be so low-cost and never even entertaining for what it’s, hell any child with a PC might priolly do that film however higher, geez.’
And one other merely advised the finances for the CGI was ‘a sandwich’.
The movie is obtainable to look at on Amazon Prime Video for the low, low, frankly offensive value of $4.99 (£3.79).
2020 couldn’t get a lot worse, we suppose.
