12 Days of Terror Reviews
Creating an even bigger quandary is the surprising over the top homoerotic overtones throughout the entire film. Seriously not since Jeepers Creepers 2 have I seen more shirtless boys making googly eyes at each other. The two leads Colin Egglesfield and Mark Dexter are supposed to be in a love triangle with Jenna Harrison but the way these two carry on with each other that poor girl doesn't have a chance no matter whom she chooses. It's like Brokeback Beach Bingo.
That aside this is Jaws by the numbers throwing out the actual historical facts and having our hero along with John Rhys-Davies (who apparently still will appear in any movie offered him.) go shark hunting with barrels and a crazy naturalist. (This along with the rundown ship having an inboard gasoline motor is needless to say ahistorical.) So if you like your Jaws slow paced, with a made for TV Merchant and Ivory feel and you prefer the first victim be a hunky guy in wet clingy cotton one-piece rather than a naked blonde girl. I have got your movie. I on the other hand am going to go watch a Ginger film to help clean my palate.
" nan ce n'est rien...je sentais juste un peu le saloon!" Mouwahah!!!
and then that awful, awful romantic storyline in it......
