SCREAMING AT SHARK WEEK 2017!

Howdy there, Scream Freaks! As many of you know, it’s Shark Week, and several horror host/YouTube reviewers are blowin’ their channels out with everything shark related right now. We want to do somethin’ in that same vein with a series of shark movie reviews we’ve been itchin’ to do since we started our show, but our hard pressed animation schedule usually prevents it from happenin’. Despite this hindrance, however, we still want to share with you the horrific shark movies we enjoy watchin’, excludin’ the big kahuna blockbusters like the Jaws and Sharknado series. These ain’t full reviews or even R-Rated Reviews, but just a heads up for killer fish flicks to watch out for if you’re lookin’ for things that step up the genre.

SHARKMAN aka HAMMERHEAD (2005)

William Forsythe’s gotta sink Jeffrey Combs’ mad science experiments for curin’ cancer, because they involve poor women bein’ mated with a mutant shark man who keeps eatin’ them! Fun movie with a great Street Sharks kinda monster stalkin’ people in the water and on land. We have plans for animating a review of this flick in the future. 4/5!

ycreatPETER BENCHLEY’S CREATURE (1998)

The U.S. Government creates a feral Stan Winston shark man for winning the Vietnam war but scraps the gene splicing project as soon as he goes on a frenzy. Decades later, the beast with teeth is accidentally freed and treats himself to some Caribbean islanders unless marine biologist Craig T. Nelson and his family can stop him! 3/5!

GHOST SHARK (2013)

The tide carries a shark’s bloated corpse into a magical cave that manifests its spirit into free flyin’ ecto-terror with teeth! With water as its conduit, no one’s safe as you watch this lost Ghostbusters goober tear into folks from bubble baths to lawn sprinklers with Richard Moll playin’ its Ahab. 4/5!

SHARKTOPUS (2010)

Roger Corman brings us a freaky hybrid of a shark crossed with an octopus that gobbles you up at sea or on the beach! It’s military science gone horribly wrong with Eric Roberts racin’ to the rescue! 4/5!

 

SAND SHARKS (2011)

If Tremors was less creative with its Jaws inspired graboids, then you’d have Sand Sharks. Sharks are literally swimmin’ through sand and threatenin’ a beach’s livelihood unless a professional partyer and Dr. Brooke Hogan can blow it up. Sounds like a silly movie, but fun characters and nice production value. 4/5!

And that’s pretty much it, Scream Freaks! The shark movies that instantly send us into a happy frenzy whenever they’re on TV, and we’d highly recommend each of these for a DVD purchase if you’re lookin’ to add some wild new stuff to your horror collection. We hope to have more shark movies to share in the near future, but these should be enough to hold you over for now.

Other than that, be sure to catch up on all past Screaming Soup! Seasons, check out this week’s Howl’n Hottie, read recent reviews for the newer horror films and comics we’re checkin’ out in our blogs, R-Rated Reviews and Sequential Slime, and help us get the word out about the web’s #1 animated horror host show!

See ya later, Scream Freaks!
