It seems that Shark Attack 3: Megalodon, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, and Dinoshark have a new contender in the battle for best/worst giant shark movie, with the addition of SyFy’s upcoming Sharktopus. Check out the trailer above for all the cheesy goodness (alright, “goodness” might be a bit of a stretch).
Sharktopus stars Eric Roberts of…err, Eric Roberts fame (hey, he actually did have a role in The Dark Knight) and is produced by B-movie legend Roger Corman (who actually appeared in Dinoshark in an acting capacity).
SyFy Channel will be unleashing what is sure to be a top-contender for Best Picture at next year’s Academy Awards. That’s right, DINOSHARK debuts tonight at 9pm on SyFy. Based on the preview, it looks like it could possibly hang with both Shark Attack 3: Megalodon and Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus in terms of cheesy effects and horrible acting.
Apparently, Dinoshark has been frozen in a glacier in Antarctica. However, it comes back to life after a piece of the glacier breaks off, allowing Dinoshark to thaw out and swim to a sunny beach in Mexico for Spring Break (consider me jealous of Dinoshark). So basically, you’ve got a cross between a shark and a dinosaur on Spring Break in Mexico. How could this movie possibly go wrong?
Oh, and did I mention that Dinoshark can apparently fly? Admittedly, it looks like Dinoshark doesn’t have quite the hang time that Mega Shark possesses, though.
