Double Dare Preview: Shark Movies.

Double Dare Preview: Shark Movies.

With The Meg and Sharknado 6 lurking beneath the waves, we knew August’s theme had to be horrifically bad shark movies!

No. Just no.

Shark movies have been historically awful.  With the exception of the first two Jaws movies and, perhaps, Open Water, they’re mostly stinkers.  Attempts to make a straight-faced flick about the terrors of the deep, like 2016’s The Shallows, nearly always come undone.  Hell, even Jaws ran out of good ideas by the third one…and Jaws 4 is a cinematic sacrilege!

Shitty Shark Movies to the Rescue?

That being said, schlocky B-Movie shark movies are having a renaissance.   Apparently, there isn’t a cockamamie spin on “toothy monster eats swimmers” that is too silly to get made.  Two headed sharks? Check.  Sharks that travel via hurricane, tornado, even volcanic eruptions?  You bet your sweet ass!  Mutant sharks, giant sharks, mechanical sharks: there is no shark-word-salad title you can think of that somebody hasn’t committed to film.

Ah, Mr. Trejo. Good to see you on Double Dare Reviews again. I see you brought an extra shark head. Lovely.

To celebrate a month busy with shark shenanigans, we decided to find six of the silliest flicks about the ocean’s apex predators.  As always, we welcome your votes via Twitter, Facebook, or the comments section to help us choose which awful film will be featured in our Double Dare podcast.

I like the camo-coloration…as if being a giant shark that can burrow was not enough of an advantage!
