Sharks. Why’d it have to be sharks? – Raiders of the Lost Shark

by Phil Wheat

Nope, you didn’t read that heading wrong. Despite sharing a similar title to THAT Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Shark is not a rip-roaring archaeological adventure, instead it’s the latest in a long line of creature-feature movies that have, for what seems like eons now, been a mainstay of the Syfy channel (see Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Sharknado, Swamp Shark et al).

Four friends set out by boat for an idyllic vacation on a private, remote island. But unknown to them, a weaponized shark has escaped from a top secret military lab nearby, a shark that was genetically engineered with hate in its blood, and programmed to hunt any human within range. Now, these friends must band together to battle an all new brand of predator who will stop at nothing to remain at the top of the food chain.

Raiders of the Lost Shark is written by Brett Kelly and directed by Scott Patrick. The film, which stars Candice Lidstone, Catherine Mary Clark, Jessica Huether and Lawrence Evenchick, is coming soon from Wild Eye Releasing.
