Monster of the Day #709

The Sci Fi Channel (as it was known at the time) also took a whack at the Shark Man idea. No Stan Winston creation, it was a CGI creation, at about the level you’d expect from the SFC.

It was surprisingly difficult to find a decent still from the movie; hence the better but smaller still above. To be fair, the movie does feature the always welcome Jeffrey Combs as a mad scientist.

    Ack, now I want to see this! Hoping it’s on YouTube, since being a Sci-Fi movie I’m not willing to actually pay money to see it…

  • Eric Hinkle

    Am I wrong, or did this movie have a subplot where the mad scientists wanted to mate his shark-man to a lovely (of course) young lady to produce a whole horde of baby shark-men?

    E-yup. That’s as I recall. Mad Science ruled.

    Man but some weird kinks can show up in SyFy (and Sci-Fi) films.

    Why is this more scary than a normal shark? I mean, it’s smaller and probably less voracious, and slower. I guess it can go on land, but so can a tiger.

  • The Rev.

    What little I saw of it was going less for scares and more for gore and stupidity, so that probably wasn’t a concern for them.

    Same thing with Two-Headed Shark Attack. So, what, it eats you twice as fast? Oh no! Sure, it’s ridiculously large, but that’s not cutting it either.

    Ooo, did Ken use that for MotD yet?
