My nomination for Trailer of the Year...
For those of you who never dreamed you'd live to see Debbie Gibson in a giant sea monster movie, dream no more, my friends! http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fa7ck5mcd1o

I can't decide if that looks so bad it's good, or just so bad it's bad.

It's made by a company that seems to specialise in making blatant straight-to-dvd ripoffs of better known films. Check out the website for trailers for other classics such as Transmorphers, The Terminators and Alien Vs Hunters;

I will admit however that a giant shark attacking a plane is kinda cool....

Ahaha! Silly B-Movie name. Mind you, I guess that's what it is. I actually rather liked the creature effects though. And the silliness of marine creatures attacking planes and such. (Mind you Jaws dragged a helicopter under water in one of the sequels didn't he/she?) This looks mad though. I doubt I'll watch it anytime soon as it's the kind of film that could get old quick, but I like the creators' sense of humour.

Was that Max Von Sydow? He tends to make bad films good.

The thing that always impresses me with these kinds of movies is that for all the incompetence on display, for the tiny budget they have to play around with the effects are always far better than you'd expect. I guess entry level CG is pretty good if used right! This looks even better than Sharks In Venice, and that's got a Baldwin.

Hope that guy out of Old Boy shows up and takes a bite out of the octopus. Should've made it a giant squid - octopus? octopussy more like.

It stars Lorenzo Lamas, star of 'just in from the pub but not ready to call it a day' viewing staple Renegade, so how bad could it be?

If this is the same company behind Alien vs Hunter, I Am Omega and Monster, I'm there already.
