Sharks are one of the most interesting creatures on the planet. There is Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" where people can learn more about these fascinating beasts... and then there is SyFy's shark week. This week is a most joyous time for bad movie lovers because of the hilariously awful shark movies. During this week I watched so many bad shark movies and loved them all. Here is a list of some of the greatest bad shark movies that are swimming around.
1. Sand Sharks
Thats right. Sharks that swim through sand. Thought you were safe on the beach? Well think again.
2. Super Shark
Super Shark! Super Shark is a wonderful example of a hilarious bad shark movie because it takes on a tank and even has it's own funky theme song.
Here is the song incase you were curious...
Oh, Dinoshark. Set free from your iceberg home (because of global warming) and forced to make your way in modern day society. You are a pre-historic beast and not even grenades can get you down. Too bad that later in the movie you took a harpoon to the eye that ended your underwater reign.
This angry genetically mutated shark/octopus was made by the U.S. Navy for combat. What a shame that it started to attack everyday beach goers with its sharp teeth...and tentacles?
5. Ghost Shark
Ghosts are scary. Sharks are scary. But combine both to get ghost shark and BOOM! Even more frightening, right? During this incredible film a man actually drinks ghost shark. Yep. This is a movie.
6. 2-Headed Shark Attack
One shark is scary, but movies with only one shark just don't cut it in Hollywood anymore. There has to be a twist. Why not add another head on a great white shark? Double the terror!
7. Swamp Shark
When an animal smuggling deal goes wrong you can tell that the movie is just going to be fantastic. To make a hysterically bad shark movie: Add one killer shark, a swamp, a dash of crocodiles, and a teaspoon of teens.
8. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus
Another shark movie where an iceberg breaks and releases deadly creatures. Mega Shark and Giant Octopus fought in the prehistoric times and now were able to finish, dare I say, the battle of the century!
Personally, this is one of my favorite bad shark movies of all time. I want whoever came up with this idea to be my best friend. Sharks that fly around in a tornado and still manage to go on killing sprees? This is a movie that you have to see to believe...that it was actually made.
10. Sharknado 2: The Second One
More chainsaws. More sharks. More everything that makes Sharknado brilliant. You can tell that they really embrace the hilariously bad movie title because of the weather channel and awful special effects. Love the puns though. Monster storm...get it?
11. Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!
If you are asking yourself how can Sharknado possibly get any better I have two words for you: Space chainsaw. Thats right. Our Sharknado fighting hero goes to space and fights off sharks with a chainsaw lightsaber. Oh, not to spoil anything but his wife gives birth inside of a shark plummeting back to earth from outer space.
Sharks never fail to fascinate us with their dangerously sharp teeth and mysterious underwater homes. Just remember the next time you go swimming, are on a beach or even just walking around the city to beware! These sharks will somehow find a way attack.
