Shark Night 3DPredatory man-eaters, with a hunger for flesh and a brain the size of a walnut… And I haven’t even told you about the sharks yet! The girls of Shark Night 3D might look hot in their bikini’s, but they don’t stand a chance when it’s the sharks who get all the guys in this teen-scream B movie!

The story is predictable as expected and makes me wonder how much talent it actually takes to become a screenwriter in Hollywood. (For the record, I’m available and could probably write this script half asleep while lying on a beach downing mojito’s like there’s no tomorrow).

Being attacked by killer sharks - Clothing optional.A group of vacationing teens are excited to be spending the weekend at their friend Sara’s (Sara Paxton) posh lake house. But their fantasy getaway becomes a nightmare when they realize the waters are inhabited by a bunch of hungry sharks with a taste for spray-tanned flesh! Throw in a creepy red-neck, scantily clad girlies and a whole lot of stupid decisions and you got yourself a classic cheesy monster movie!

I have to admit, I was pretty excited about this movie. It had me at the word “Shark”. I mean there’s a reason Discovery Channel’s Shark Week continues to be one of the most popular television events ever. It’s because of geeks like me! The chance to have 3D sharks jumping out of the screen at me was thrilling, especially when pared with the cheesy script and acting that was oh-so easy to make fun of. When I found a fellow B movie lover to see this with, it was the butter on the popcorn – we barely kept quiet, making sarcastic commentary throughout the entire film and laughing.

Bedtime snackShark Night 3D actually surpassed my idea of an entertainingly bad movie. The script was actually surprisingly funny, think Lake Placid or Deep Blue Sea. The 3D was definitely worth buying into for once – Funny how big-budget blockbusters in 3D are usually not worth the cost of the glasses; but add some in-your-face 3D effects to a cheap little horror movie and all of a sudden it’s worth seeing!

Make no mistake this movie is bad, bad, BAD! But it’s pure entertainment and it delivers!


Directed by David R. Ellis, Starring Sara Paxton, Dustin Milligan, Katharine McPhee.
