Movie Info

Last Fourth of July, teenager Christy Bruce disappeared from a high school beach party. Her severed arm washed ashore a day later. Drunken sea captain Blaise Shaw became a hero to the small seaside community of Harmony after killing the great white shark that was deemed responsible, but the Christy Bruce murder was no shark attack. Blaise turns to ghost hunter Ava Conte, who is skeptical but intrigued by his ghost shark ramblings. With preparations for a massive July 4th celebration rapidly approaching, they soon find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy of sex and murder involving the town's wealthiest and most powerful citizens. Unprepared to contend with a Ghost Shark that can hunt on land, sea, as well as anywhere there is enough water or rain to sustain its phantom form, Blaise and Ava must uncover the truth about the towns dark past or fall victim to the Ghost Shark.

Critic Reviews for Ghost Shark

Sharknado was just a concept. Ghost Shark is a sustained delight.

Syfy already has a Sharknado sequel set for next summer, but Ghost Shark probably won't have that kind of staying power. It succeeds in being more or less stupidly watchable, but unlikely to prompt anywhere near the same Twitter eruption.

Unfortunately, Ghost Shark... is no Sharknado.

[It] never approaches the laughably bad stage, settling for just plain ol' bad.

[One} thing to note about Ghost Shark is how gleefully it embraces every bad horror movie stereotype.

There is a peak to the insanity and it arrives too soon (and probably doesn't rise high enough).

Audience Reviews for Ghost Shark

If you thought that Sharknado was cheesy and pretty much ridiculous, you obviously haven't seen Ghost Shark. The deaths were both hilarious and creative. Lots of gore, so the perfect horror movie if you aren't actually trying to get scared.

This was recommended in a cracked article and while Sharknado was more ridiculous this was a bit more fun in a laugh out loud way.

Generic Syfy movie following in the wake of Sharknado. It did have some of the funniest shark attack scenes though.
