Ahoy, squirts! Quint here.
Post-Jaws' crazy worldwide success there were a hundred cheap knockoffs racing to cash in on the shark fever sweeping the world. Not just in America, either. Australia, Italy, the Philippines, Mexico... everywhere had their cheap shark movie.
And I love them all. None of them even come close to the greatness of Jaws, but from Blood Beach (whose tagline was "Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water... you can't get there!") to Great White they all make me smile no matter how crappy the shark looks or how bad the acting is.
That's why the upcoming Shark Night 3-D can't go wrong for me. Directed by David R. Ellis (of Final Destination 2 and Snakes on a Plane fame) and starring up and comers like Sara Paxton, who was fantastic in Ti West's The Innkeepers, this flick seems to be putting all its cards on the table with the poster, which premiered at IGN.
Sharks, teeny bikinis, screaming women... all in 3-D. If this one ends up half as fun as Piranha 3-D I'll be one happy sharksploitation nerd. Thoughts?
