The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Shark Night (2011)

Starring: Sara Paxton, Donal Logue, Joel David Moore, Joshua Leonard, Katharine McPhee
Director: David R. Ellis

A group of college kids head to one of their homes on a rural lake in Louisiana Gulf. Once there they discover the lake is invested with sharks.

My Take:
I love sharks. I am a huge fan of Donal Logue and enjoy the work Joel David Moore & Joshua Leonard as well (who all three do a decent job with what little is there). But why in the hell did this cast agree to make such a dumb movie? I guess sometimes you need a pay day.
This is the worst movie I've watched in a long, long time. I could write ten pages on the logic gaps, script holes, cheap looking CGI, and more. Luckily I wont as it would devote more time than this movie deserves.
What is even more baffling is it received studio financing and a wide screen release. No wonder people think mainstream horror movies are the pits. Crap like this and sequels, and remakes are the only movies which are seen in theaters.
Stay clear of this stinker!
