Taking direction from somebody else is never easy, in fact it is downright difficult when you do not agree with them. People that are above you at work always feel entitled to be able to tell you what to do without being questioned. These are not the people you want to be working for, especially if they are not willing to elaborate on the what and the why when you are going to be doing something. If anything, this all goes back to an important lesson in life, that respect is earned, not given.
After getting his orders to move out to the desert and keep an eye on the road, Staff Sergeant Marcus Howston readies his men. Even though they do not truly understand what they will be doing, they are to follow Marcus’s lead at all costs. Getting knocked off the road by an enemy IED, the group is told to move out and secure the area. Roaming through the hills, they find something that appears to be out of place, an idol.
Not knowing what it is doing in the middle of nowhere, Wilcox comes up with a theory that it was being praised in secret, as idol worship is not allowed in the area’s religion. But his thinking goes a little bit deeper as he starts to think that it might be something to hold a Jinn from being released upon the world. As Jinn’s do not like humans at all, it is probably better that it is in the middle of nowhere and right as the men are ready to leave, Davies takes a shot at the idol and hits the old statue square between the eyes. Watching as the stature crumbles to the ground, the group has no idea what they have just unleashed.
Getting to their new base of operations, the group has no idea where they are, much less where the road is that they are supposed to be protecting. Hunkering down for the night, Keller wakes up to a vision from his past that is rather upsetting. Keeping it to himself, the group goes out and tries to find the road that they are supposed to be patrolling and when finding an abandoned town, they have more questions than answers. As a sand storm moves through the area, the group gets a special visitor when an Arab woman comes into their lives. But there’s a bigger problem brewing because now the visions are not only in Keller’s mind, they are infecting everyone else as well. Seeing their dastardly deeds being replayed in their heads, it is difficult to know what is real and what is a memory and that can drive a person insane.
I must admit that I had pretty low expectations when coming into this movie, as I have had to turn off plenty of Jinn based movies in my time, but I wanted to see how the story played out. It was actually pretty cool seeing something jump from body to body and turn the men against each other. Even though the woman who joined the group may not have been the Jinn, she was carrying it from place to place and I can see how easy it would be for the spirit to make others bend to its will. With plenty of gun fire, best friends turning on one another, people being driven to madness, a road that you never see and a powerful spirit taking and using memories against its prey, it really is a pretty good punishment tale. I have never tried to break anything that seemed to be old and spiritual in my life and after watching this, I will never try to. Stay Scared.

If there is one thing that is a certainty in life, it’s that reality television will never go away. It truly has amazed me over the years watching what I thought was a fad, become the biggest thing on television. I would have thought after one or two of these shows dropped off the air that everything would start falling apart for this type of television, but as we have seen over the past few years, it only makes it stronger. While I will never be a huge fan of reality television, I do find myself watching it once in a while to see what new things are being brought to the table and am starting to see what the appeal really is.
Getting ready to leave the movie set for their next job, Morgan and Cricket are excited to see what the future holds for them. Meeting up with their new ghost hunting team consisting of; Stephanie, Nina and their paranormal expert Randolph, they are also introduced to one of the producers, Eve, and head up into the hills. Getting to their new digs for the shoot, they meet the brains behind Spirit Seekers; D.J. and his right-hand man James. Knowing that they will be in for something special, at least that is what D.J. is promising them, they have no idea what to expect when they start filming.
Getting a meeting with his new crew, D.J. explains what will be happening when they film at the old ranch that is supposedly haunted. Not believing a word of the haunting news, Morgan is having a hard time understanding what he should be doing to make the show better. But everything is already in the bag for the production and when he talks to Randolph about heading down to the old building to get some B-roll footage, he is shown how the paranormal devices that the doctor has brought with him, work. Getting some strange hits by the old building, the two men head back to home base to get their final instructions and pep talk before the shooting commences.
As the sun finally sets and the ‘Spirit Seekers’ make their way into the old building, nobody is feeling very comfortable, especially Nina who says she is being touched by something that is not there. But Randolph is having a hard time believing the young woman when he is not able to pick up anything on his devices. Making their way upstairs however, the group is hit with a massive surge of energy as the chandelier comes swinging down and knocks Nina out of the window. Heading outside to check on their teammate, they find that the young woman is dead, but that is only the beginning of their problems as D.J. has a little secret of his own that might cost his entire staff their lives.
I liked the idea of a fixed haunted house being recorded for a ghost hunting show, as that seems to be what is happening these days to get the ratings. I enjoyed the budding relationship between Morgan and Eve who seem to have plenty to build off of, especially when the spit hits the fan. D.J. was really a fun character and when his secret is revealed, he is the last person on earth that you would want to be next to, I mean he does have an itchy trigger finger. The story played out very well and I loved when D.J. came out and said it: that he is only in the business for the money and a petty death will not keep him from getting his paycheck. With a creepy house, a crooked producer, plenty of gun play, secrets thrust into the light and a possible haunted house with a tainted history, everything comes together nicely at the end. I will tell you one thing, I probably will never get involved behind the scenes of a reality show, especially if it is supposed to scare the crap out of me. Stay Scared.

No matter where you live, you always hear stories about someone seeing a strange creature in the woods and it is usually Bigfoot. While it does not seem possible that there could be a massive hairy man living in the woods for so many years with so few pictures being taken of it, there are the occasional footprints spotted, unidentified hairs and sometimes even the discovery of a body. Even though science will not acknowledge the existence of such a creature, with so many people seeing it and even hunting it, there has to be something that is driving the masses to believe. Being on the fence about it, I would still like to know one way or another if the creature really does exist, but then I would have to question if it is nice or has violent tendencies.
Heading out to the woods to get away from the world and do some camping for the weekend, Steve and his friends have no idea what is awaiting them. While a couple of his friends make their way deeper into the woods for a little nookie, they find that they are not alone. Seeing a massive beast, they try to run, but they do not get far as the beast starts ripping them to shreds. Back at camp, things are just as bad as the large hairy beasts lay waste to it and take what they want. With no escape in sight, the friends are on their own, only to find that they are no match for the Bigfoot of Boggy Creek.
Arriving on the scene to see all of the carnage, Sheriff Jim Taylor chalks it up to another bear attack and will not listen to any of the Bigfoot claims coming from his deputy. Heading back into town to try to stay ahead of whatever is coming his way from the parents of Steve McTee, he gets a call that a young woman, Dakota, has been picked up by a former employee and she appears to be out of her mind. Seeing that the young woman is worse for the wear, Jim sits down with Doctor Leonard Evans for a chat that might start to open his eyes as to what is going on in his town. As the Doctor explains to the Sheriff that the bodies that have been brought in have no consistencies with a bear attack, he cannot offer a suggestion about what kind of creature caused these kinds of injuries.
Talking to his former employee Mark about what he saw, one story of Bigfoot makes its way back into his head. Not wanting to believe that there could actually be a creature like that in the woods, Jim finds out he has a missing girl on his hands from the group that was ravaged, but that becomes secondary to him when he finds out that his daughter is also missing after another one of these attacks. Not letting anything stop him, Jim mounts up with his deputy and old friend Zeke to go on a hunting trip to put the legend to rest once and for all. With only his daughter on his mind however, Jim finds out that there are many more people that need protection from these beasts in the woods and he may be the only one that can save them.
Talk about a Bigfoot movie that does not pull any punches when it comes to how violent they are. Seeing people getting shredded and torn limb from limb, I mean wow, just wow. I like how the sheriff is reluctant to listen to the Bigfoot legend until his daughter becomes the latest victim and he is forced to believe. Zeke was a huge surprise and stole the movie, a redneck that knows much more about the world than anybody else. With plenty of blood, people being slashed, people being torn limb from limb, a soft spot for women and a killer beast older than the trees, if you thought that Bigfoot was nice and cuddly, you might want to think again. Stay Scared.

Being surrounded by your friends and family during Christmas time seems to be something that many people like to do. While you might not see them every day, it is nice to have a time set aside to be with them and just let life pass you by a little bit. While the conversations will involve work, other sides of the family and politics, it is important to remember why you are all together. With nothing being more important than family, make sure you let them understand that as well, even if you are not able to make the venture, a phone call or email will make sure they know that you are thinking about them.
As Christmas Eve has finally arrived, the girls of the Delta Alpha Kappa house are ready to start opening up their presents and no one is more excited than the house mother, Ms. Mac. Making sure that all of the girls that have stayed in the house over the holiday are downstairs, they are having a hard time in locating Megan, who seems to hate Christmas. Not knowing what is going on with their sorority sister, the girls leave her be for the time being, but as the night draws on, they start to hear disturbing sounds coming from upstairs.
Finding Kyle in Megan’s room, the girls don’t know what to think, but Kelli is very unhappy that her boyfriend has broken into the house. Knowing more about the house than anyone else, Kyle is happy to tell everyone what happened back in 1991 when the legend of Billy Lenz was born under this very roof. Recounting that Billy blinded his little sister Agnes and killed his mother and father and decided to feast on his prize, the young killer and his sister were placed in an asylum. Not knowing what happened to either of the siblings, the group is about to find out that they are not alone in the house.
Getting a visit from Clair’s sister Leigh, the group had no idea that the young woman was missing. Checking under the Christmas tree, Leigh notices that there is a present for Agnes from Billy which is very strange. With a plan in place to not leave the house before she finds out where her little sister is, Leigh and all of the sisters of the house are in for a night to remember as the phone will not stop ringing and the creep on the other end is looking for Agnes. Coming to the conclusion that it has to be Billy, the house starts to be terrorized from the inside and with little to no ways to fight back, the Delta Alpha Kappa legacy will never be the same again.
Following the premise of the first movie, this remake takes things to another level as you get to see the killer along with his methods. Learning more about the house where Billy grew up (and killed his parents in) really added some genuine terror to the story. With a ton of blood hiding the floors all around, it is just a splatter fest and if you are into gore, this might be more of your cup of tea than the original. With fighting sorority sisters, plenty of boozing, a Christmas killer, a father/brother, some cannibalism, eyeballs and a little sister who is sick of being locked away, this is a Christmas slasher that will make you think twice about living in a house that could have so much pain locked inside. Stay Scared.

One of the best things about Christmas time are the parties that are thrown during the season. Just fun get togethers with friends always makes the season seem a little bit more magical. And parties with friends are just the beginning as many employers like to show their cheer by hosting little events for their employees. With good conversations, tons of laughter and some spirited cheer, Christmas is just that time of year where you can wear a smile that nobody can take from you.
After the holiday party subsides in the sorority house, the girls are looking to have a little fun and get their house mother Mrs. Mac to open her present. Loving how the night is starting off, a phone call starts to get some of the girls to worry about who might be on the other side of the line. The Moaner usually sticks to the same script when chatting with the college girls, but after being reamed out by the drunken Barb, he deviates and promises to kill her. As everyone retires for the night, they have no idea that one of their own has been taken from the house and there will be more to come.
Arriving at their meeting spot and not seeing his daughter, Mr. Harrison finds his way to the sorority house to find that Mrs. Mac has no idea where Clare could possibly be. Not being too impressed with his daughter’s room, much less the state of the house, Mr. Harrison decides to get the police involved and files a missing person’s report with Barb and Phyl. Promising to look into it, the police set up a search party as the night rolls in and wind up finding the body of a thirteen-year-old girl. With a slight panic around campus starting up, everyone is told to keep their doors and windows locked to make sure they are safe for the holiday.
While everyone is looking for Clare, Jess has a problem of her own as she has just found out that she is pregnant and wants to abort the baby. But her boyfriend Peter does not believe that this should be up to her as the child is his as well and he is looking forward to leaving the town with her. Not knowing what to do next, Jess gets a call from the Moaner as well and decides to get the police involved. As Lieutenant Fuller gets on the case, he taps the phone to find out where the calls are coming from. But little does anyone know who else is hiding in the house and what they are capable of on this holiday eve.
If you are looking for a Christmas classic, especially for horror, this might be the one for you. Even though you do not get all of the holiday gore that other movies have offered through the years, it is the benchmark for a thriller that will keep you guessing who the killer really is. The thing that I like most about this movie is that the killer does not have a motive, he/she just wants its life back, from where? We may never truly know. The sorority sisters are great and Barb really steals the show with her drunken persona which I don’t ever think anyone can outdo. With a killer in the shadows, messed up phone calls, a police sergeant that does not get it, bodies pilling up in the house and Christmas cheer, if this is not one of your favorite holiday horror movies yet, it soon will be. Stay Scared.

Getting together with family over Christmas is something that has been a tradition for longer than I have been around. I still remember the days when Christmas break arrived and my parents and I piled into the car and made our way toward my grandparent’s house. And it wasn’t just us that made the journey, as my aunts and uncles from all over the country would join as well, making the holiday something special for the entire family. With my grandparents gone now, the tradition of making our trek to their house has gone away, but the love for the family has not and while we do not always travel to see each other every year, the phone calls and Skyping have helped to keep the family together, during and after the holidays.
Taking their first trip in years to visit the grandparents, Will is happy to have his wife Amber and kids, Tommy and Fiona, along for the ride. Arriving at the house, Tommy and his father are blown away by all of the dead animals on the walls, along with Grandpa Dale’s stories about the beasts that roam in the desert. Seeing that his grandpa is a stone-cold killer, Tommy has no idea what the trip will have in store for him, only that he will not only be seeing them, but his perv cousin Troy as well and the two will be forced to share the same room once again.
Dave is not entirely sure what this trip will have in store for him, but he reluctantly accepts the invitation from his parents to come and visit for Christmas. With his wife Vivian and son Troy coming along, Dave has made it very clear that he does not value his brother’s and parent’s choices, but he will try to keep his mouth shut. Seeing his complete family again, Dave wants little to do with sticking around in the house of death that his father created and gets the boys to head with him down to the local creek to try and pan for gold. Not being able to get Troy to participate, Dave hands the pan over to little Tommy who is able to find something strange in the water, and nobody knows what it is.
Bringing the strange rock back to the house, Tommy becomes very attached to it and Troy notices this and takes it away. Dropping a cigarette next to the old stone, Troy has no idea what he has unleashed upon the folks of the small town. As night falls on the community and neighbor Bonnie hears something strange outside of her window, she sees firsthand the horror that is Krampus. Fleeing to Dale’s house with a story that nobody will believe, the men head out to see if they can find the creature, but have no idea what they are up against. As Dave is the only man to make it back to the house in one piece, he knows that not even the police can help them and tries to get everyone to leave as soon as possible. Yet Krampus cannot be stopped as he quickly finds out and Bonnie is left to try and take the kids to safety and she might know someone that can help them, but will she be able to find them quickly enough?
This is just your average look at Krampus over the holiday season, said no one! This beast is looking to feed until his appetite for blood has been fulfilled and I will just say wow, because that is a lot of blood. I liked the group as it got smaller as Krampus continued to feast, it seemed like you got to know everybody better. The dysfunctional family storyline was great, not being able to get everyone on the same page is just something that you see on the daily. With a summoning stone, Bigfoot hunters, a frightened neighbor, a treasure, some blood, some guts, some missing limbs and a Krampus, this movie takes you to places you might not want to venture. While I always like to say that family comes first, this movie just goes a step further in making sure that you understand that and that the Krampus really likes blood. Stay Scared.

Christmas is the best time of the year to spend with your family, but there are folks out there that do not have a family and what should they do to celebrate? Over my years, I have met many of these people and while I feel bad for them, I know there is something that I can do to help brighten their spirits. Hanging out on Christmas Eve at a local watering hole and having fun conversations with them and talking about life gives many people a smile that they would not usually have. Even taking it a step further and inviting them over for dinner has happened and it becomes a very entertaining evening. This is not a way to take pity on people that don’t have a family, but rather a nice way to convey Christmas cheer to those who may not have it otherwise and a great thing to do to celebrate the holiday.
Getting another drink in him, Tom is just happy to have his friendly bartender Eddie with him. After losing his parents years ago, Christmas is a rough time for Tom and it usually results in a failed suicide attempt, but tonight will be different. Seeing a man entering the bar, covered in blood, who only wants to use the restroom, Eddie calls the police since he knows that there is something up. As the Janitor comes out of the restroom, the two men urge him to stay until the police arrive and find out that he has a story to tell.
Running into the bar after being attacked by some crazed people in the parking lot, Sam is next to himself and wants to know what is happening around town. With the promise of taking the group to the station, the group heads outside to see a group of zombies surrounding the officer’s car. Beating them down with a shovel, the Janitor takes the lead, only to find out that Sam is taking him back to where it all started. Not wanting to return to the university where the zombies came from, the Janitor has no choice in the matter as Sam has his gun and is not afraid to use it, even on the innocent.
Making their way upstairs, Sam, Eddie, Tom, a Perp and the Janitor come across the hall where the Janitor was first attacked. Seeing that the bodies have somehow moved away after they were re-killed, the Janitor urges the group to find some weapons, but Sam is having none of it. As a power struggle commences between the two men, they find that the group has separated, but more importantly they discover that the cadavers in the school have come back to life. Listening to the Janitor’s story about what he saw before fleeing the school, the group know that there is one person that might have answers, but when reading the professor’s notes they find out that they will be in for a fight of lifetime, one that not everyone will walk away from.
Being shot in Grindhouse fashion, this is just a great zombie movie that revolves around Christmas. You cannot help but to like all of the characters, especially when the cadavers start to make a run at them. While you have two headstrong characters facing off for power over the group, you find that they both have their motives for fighting off the undead. This movie also gives you plenty of laughs to go along with the gore that fills the halls of the school and even in the face of danger, you still find a laugh or two to keep you from shying away from the screen. With cadavers returning to life, plenty of blood, zombies, bits, separated limbs, a Perp, a Janitor, an Officer, a Bartender, a campus security guard and the truth behind reanimation being revealed, this is just a fun zombie movie that will keep you intrigued throughout, mostly because when you see Christmas decorations being used as weapons, it is hard to look away. Stay Scared.

Ever since I was a little kid, I have always been a little leery about those Santa Claus’ at the mall. It had nothing to do with the stranger danger aspect, I was afraid of his beard since nobody I knew had one. Now that I have one, I am over my fears of the Santa’s that live in the mall, I mean it used to be great to see kids with big smiles on their faces getting their picture taken. Even though times have changed and Santa is now hidden in his house in the mall, I wonder why he does not just stay their year-round, I mean he has a house and kids have wishes 365 days a year, but I digress. The point is, Santa is not creepy anymore.
With another Christmas coming around, Harry Stadling is keeping an eye on his neighbor’s kids to see who is naughty and who is nice. Keeping a list of everything that they do, he is looking to make it a great year for them yet again. With only one outlier, all of the kids are on his good side and he will make something special for them this year at the toy factory, and at his home workshop. Nothing will keep Harry from making this Christmas as special as can be, but he is starting to see the rotten underbelly of what Christmas really means.
Getting taken advantage of at work, Harry has added another person to the Naughty list. But this is not enough to keep him out of the holiday spirit. Because shortly after he watches the Thanksgiving Day Parade, he is ready to embody the holiday like never before. Fashioning himself a Santa outfit, Harry is full of cheer and will make this an event to remember. Talking to a couple co-workers at the Christmas Party however, he finds out that the Christmas cheer they are advertising to give toys to a hospital full of sick kids is a publicity scheme and no toys will be donated from the company. Not allowing the kids to go without a gift this year, Harry grabs his bags and makes his way to the factory and fills them all up.
After wrapping all of the presents, even the home-made ones, Harry is ready to embody the persona of Santa himself. Putting on his suit and beard, Harry heads out in the night and starts to load up a couple of houses with plenty of presents, but there is still something looming in the back of his mind. Remembering what the execs said at the Christmas party, Harry wants to educate them in what real Christmas cheer is. Arriving at the local church and being heckled by a couple of guys, Harry snaps and the spirit of giving is replaced with the spirit of wrath. With a body count slowly starting to pile up, this Christmas will be like no other as Santa Claus is considered armed and dangerous.
Sometimes I used to wonder who was under the beard when sitting on Santa’s lap and now I know it could have been a crazy killer. The breakdown that Harry goes through is something that we all have had to deal with from time to time, but he takes it to the next level. Not feeling bad about punishing the Naughty, Harry still has time to spend with the Nice people and is more than willing to keep up his Christmas cheer. With a Santa suit, a fake beard, plenty of toys, plenty of cheer, a HO-HO-HO, a sleigh painted van, smiles, cries and a body count, you may want to think twice about mouthing off to Santa, because if you do, you might find that his Christmas cheer is something made of nightmares. Stay Scared.

Urban Legends are something that I will never get tired of, especially when learning about a place I might be staying at for a while. Even if the stories are not told well, I love to hear what the people actually believe when it comes to these stories, because most of them come from something that really happened. With even an ounce of truth behind them, Urban Legends go a long way into explaining what happened in these small towns and while so many people only think that they are stories, they might want to be mindful of what the stories are trying to tell them.
Needing to come up with an idea about what to do their report on for their Cultural Anthropology project, Noah has already done some research on the local legends. Seeing that she has dork as part of her group, Kennedy is not willing to go out of her way at all for the group, especially since the only thing she wants to be doing is her teacher’s assistant Ethan. Jade is worried about her grade and is not willing to give up on the project, so she listens to what Noah has brought to the table, and finds the legend about the Rake incredibly interesting and gets the group to agree to do it the next day, as the Equinox is upon them and that is the time when the Rake comes out to play.
Getting the group loaded into the car, Ethan wants to keep his relationship with Kennedy under wraps for their night of investigating. Jade is getting sick and tired of her roommate and her secrets during the trip, and to make matters worse, Kennedy invited her little sister Kelly on the trip as well. With the group not all getting along and being forced to pull over on the side of the road, they are greeted by a local who warns them not to set up camp on this night, because it is not a good night for camping, at all. Not listening to the man and making their way to a prime location at Joshua Tree, the group is ready for a great time with ghost stories and beer, but that is not all the Tree has to offer them on this once in a lifetime event.
Sneaking away from the group, Kennedy and Ethan get a little frisky when the young woman is scratched on the back. Seeing the wound, the group finds out that they are not alone and listening to the unearthly screeches from whatever is stalking them, they decide to leave. But when they discover their car has a dead battery, they are forced to sit and listen to the creature attacking their camp right outside with no way to battle it. When the attacks stop and they believe that the creature has moved on, they are shocked to see that it has not and Kelly is dragged away in a fury. Seeing the strange man from earlier in the day arrive with shotgun in hand, the group has no choice but to trust that he has come to help. Leaving their camp is only the first of many decisions that the group will have to make during the long night, but each decision becomes one of life or death when dealing with the Rake.
Although this may not be on the top of my list for a monster movie, it ranks up there pretty high. The movie really did tone down for a while after the first appearance of the creature and even though we were getting to know the characters inside and out, I wish there was a little bit more action coming their way to keep the story interesting. But when the Rake is able to frighten the group and get closer to the light that it fears, the movie goes into non-stop frights, which is great to keep the audience entertained. With a creepy monster that only appears once a year, a need to feed, people who are afraid of the dark, a relationship that seems doomed and a full closure of the entire story, this is not a bad watch if you have the time. I will admit that all the times I have been to Joshua Tree, I never thought that there was anything that could hurt me and I will keep it that way and never attempt to go there during the Equinox. Stay Scared.

It is hard to imagine that anyone would believe that a living creature does not have a soul. I have always tried my hardest to steer clear of ants when they are in my path, for fear that they will come and haunt me if I step on them. That creepy crawly feeling that you get on your skin in the dead of night, yea, those are all of the insects that you crushed as a child coming back to torment you. The same with animals, I like to think that the ones you treated nicely in life would pay it forward after they pass on, but the ones that you mistreated, well, they might have a bone to pick with you.
While fighting the clock on a fishing trip trying to hook the biggest one, Brubaker and his lady Vicky are ready to set the next record. But time is not on their side as it is taking forever to reel in the catch, yet they will not quit. Seeing the brights of their prized catch’s eyes, a shark appears and bites the massive fish in half. Knowing that they lost out on the prize money that the catch would have brought them, the two decide to unleash hell on the big fish and throw everything they have at it. After tossing a grenade in the waiting mouth of the shark, it finds a way to swim back to shore and winds up in an ancient cave filled with magical powers of rejuvenation. With its earthy shell gone, the shark has found a way to exact revenge on the boat and those that hurt it, and with its new powers, it can summon itself in any watery surface it chooses.
On the beach, sisters Cicely and Ava are joined by their friends Blaise and Taylor while their other friends Cameron and Mick are out jet skiing. With little worries in their minds, Ava sees her father’s fishing boat drifting towards the harbor and Cicely wants to find out what is going on. Swimming out to the boat and finding it unmanned with no signs of their father, they notice blood splatter and a camcorder. Wanting to pass on the information that they know, they see Taylor franticly heading back to the beach with what appears to be a translucent shark closing in on her. Seeing the shark appear in front of her right off the beach and making a meal out of their friend, the group tells the police what they have seen, but nobody is willing to believe them, even with the girl’s father missing by the same occurrence.
Knowing that this is something out of the ordinary, Ava tries to figure out what exactly is going on. Getting help from Blaise, she starts to do her research on the shark and it leads them out to the local lighthouse where the keeper Finch seems to know exactly what is happening. As the ghost shark arrives at a pool party and is able to feast at will, the police will still not accept the reports of a shark in a pool, but that is not the only place it is able to feed. As all surfaces covered with water are now the shark’s domain, nobody in the town will be safe until the shark can be stopped. Not knowing where to turn, Ava and Blaise find out the actual history of the town in the museum, but their lesson might be too little too late as the hole in the dead shark’s heart will never be filled, even after it eats everyone in its path.
Okay, I will say it, it’s a freaking ghost shark! And it is amazing. If given the idea for a movie where there is a ghost shark eating people, that is one thing, but giving it the power to manifest in any wet surface, well that is just genius. With nowhere to run and hide from this vicious killer, there has to be a way to stop it, but even the book of spells does not give all the answers. With plenty of shark attacks, a ton of blood, a shark in the bathtub, shark in the pipes, shark in the street, shark in the water cup and even a shark falling from the sky, this is anyone’s nightmare come to life. If you are afraid of sharks, you might want to take a step back before watching this movie, because if you are afraid that they can find a way into the toilet, you will see that this is not the only place a ghost shark can hide. Stay Scared.
