Movie Info

Casper Van Dien, Ernie Hudson, Jenny McShane and Bentley Mitchum star in this thriller about a marine biologist doing research at a facility off the coast of Africa. Hammerhead sharks have long been a presence to be respected in local waters, but now they've started attacking people without reason -- apparently for fun. While superstitious locals fear demonic possession is to blame, the biologist thinks this may be the results of experiments performed by a former colleague turned rival. ~ Mark

Hilariously bad (and therefore entertaining) Z- grade shark horror.

The title takes a back seat to some boring conspiracy mumbo-jumbo.

I didn't expect to see a Jaws, but at least the story should have been better acted.

Great movie. The shark action is good. The creature feature element and the cast are very good.

This thriller about a shark expert who goes looking for clues after a string of shark attacks leads to the death of his friend is better than i thought it would be! Casper Van Dien(from the awesome Starship Troopers) is the expert and theres a bit of gore, a passable story and some laughably bad acting which means this isn't a total waste of time. Its no Jaws but then there aren't really any other shark attack films that are as good as that. Shark Attack is one for the easily pleased. Which is why i want to see the sequels!
