Horror Case Files Verdict

I always loved this movie because it knew what it was, and it was just campy fun. Genetic sharks attacking a sea lab, brilliant. It’s nicely paced and the effects were convincing enough. Plus, it was a new concept in the horror genre and it broke some cliches. Like at the time, nobody saw the Samuel Jackson speech coming. I could do without LL Cool J as the religious chef, who has his own rap song playing at the end. If you want to see a fun B horror movie, where it’s so bad, it’s good. I would check this out. I saw this in the theaters, and I currently have it in my library for repeated viewing. It appears on cable where time to time, or if you could find it for $5, it’s worth a buy.


Random Info I got from this File:
  • Don’t make sharks smart
  • Don’t go next to a shark even if it looks like it’s sleeping
  • Sharks can swim backwards
File Status: 7 out of 10
