Taking movies to the next level seems to be the raison d’être for B-Movies these days. As each straight-to-DVD flick battles among the onslaught of cinema made with more chutspa than money, and often-times talent, we are witness to crazier and crazier themes to grab our attention.
So take every single B-Movie horror trope and drop them into one flick and you have Sky Sharks.
The synopsis pretty much says it all:
A team of Arctic geologists stumble across an abandoned laboratory in which the Nazis developed an incredible and brutal secret weapon during the final months of WW2. Deep in the ice, they accidentally awake a deadly army of flying zombie sharks ridden by genetically mutated, undead super-humans, who are unleashed into the skies, wreaking their bloodthirsty revenge on any aircraft that takes to the air. An elite task force is assembled to take on this deadly threat and stop the Sky Sharks from conquering the air, but as time runs out, the task force realizes they will have to fight fire with fire, and the stage is set for the greatest flying super-mutant zombie shark air battle the world has ever seen….
Directed by Marc Fehse, it stars Cary Tagawa (Mortal Kombat, Planet of the Apes, Pearl Harbor), Robert LaSardo (Death Race), Lar Park-Lincoln (Friday the 13th Part VII), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies).
I am not entirely sure if you can jam more awesomeness into one flick but of course it remains to be seen if it can deliver. The artwork does look promising though…
