We live in a time where crazy low budget shark movies are very common, but there’s always room for one more. I seem to remember that one of us on HCF first posted some news about Sky Sharks about a year ago, and that the filmmakers needed money from Crowdfunder to complete the film. Well, it seems that they have finally finished the movie, or are at least near to doing so, as we now, courtesy of horrormovies.ca, have a trailer to share with you. Sky Sharks looks as stupidly cheesy and entertaining as you could wish for.
Synopsis: Deep in the ice of the Antarctic, a team of geologists uncover an old Nazi laboratory, still intact, where dark experiments had occurred. Unwittingly the geologists unleash upon the world a top-secret experiment the Germans had been working on – modified sharks that are able to fly, whose riders are genetically mutated, undead super-humans. The only thing that can stop them, and possibly save the world, is a military task force called “Dead Flesh Four” – assembled from reanimated U.S. soldiers who fell in Vietnam.
The film stars Robert LaSardo, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Lynn Lowry, Lar Park-Lincoln, and Tony Todd. Director Marc Fehse also writes the script along with A. D. Moreal. Apparently Tom Savini is involved too, which should bode well for the effects side of things [though going by the trailer I could be wrong there as it seems like the usual crap CGI]. Raven Banner have secured the worldwide rights to Sky Sharks, and they have also struck a deal with Sony Pictures regarding a number of territories in Europe. According to the IMDB the US release date is September next year, but surely we don’t have to wait another year and a half to see this masterpiece?
