Ghost Shark – The Next Horrible Shark Movie to Hit SyFy
While we wait anxiously for the possible sequel to SharkNado, SyFy channel is feeding our hunger for horrible, B-rated shark movies with it’s latest incarnation – Ghost Shark.
Starring former 7th Heaven star Mackenzie Rosman; A group of friends are terrorized by a group of sharks – that are ghost. Yes, just when you thought every possible shark idea had been used up by SyFy; they give us this gem.
Syfy’s Executive Vice President of programming and original movies Thomas Vitale says the idea came from his 7-year-old daughter. Seems like as good as any place to come up with an idea right? A 7-year-old. Vitale does claim there is a “logical reason” behind the phantom sharks featured in the movie.
Here’s the synopsis from IMDB:
Last Fourth of July, teenager Christy Bruce disappeared from a high school beach party. Her severed arm washed ashore a day later. Drunken sea captain Blaise Shaw became a hero to the small seaside community of Harmony after killing the great white shark that was deemed responsible, but the Christy Bruce murder was no shark attack.
Blaise turns to ghost hunter Ava Conte, who is skeptical but intrigued by his ghost shark ramblings. With preparations for a massive July 4th celebration rapidly approaching, they soon find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy of sex and murder involving the town’s wealthiest and most powerful citizens.
Unprepared to contend with a Ghost Shark that can hunt on land, sea, as well as anywhere there is enough water or rain to sustain its phantom form, Blaise and Ava must uncover the truth about the towns dark past or fall victim to the Ghost Shark
The movie premieres on SyFY on Thursday, August 22nd; check local listings for time.
