There are many different teaching methods that our instructors have used to ensure that we are learning to the fullest. Although some of these methods may not have been conventional, they have stuck with us later in life and looking back, we ask ourselves why every teacher did not teach us that way. With so many different learning curves, it is good to have a variety of teaching methods to keep our minds working to reach the ultimate goal of knowledge.
Professor Babish has his teaching method down cold. Taking his students on a boat trip rather than keeping them locked up in a classroom works wonders for their motivation. Although most of the students think that he is teaching a throwaway class, he still takes it seriously and will do anything to make sure they take some knowledge away when it is all over. With a couple students genuinely interested in learning, most are just happy to be exploring their fellow student bodies.
As the group is nearing their final destination, the boat hits a dead shark that ends up killing its propellers, then something else attacks the hull. Being dead in the water, the group sees an atoll (island) that they can lay anchor to get the students off of the boat while it is being repaired. Not feeling completely comfortable with the this decision, Mrs. Babish says aboard the boat while waiting to hear if her husband’s students can find anything worthwhile on the atoll that could help their current situation.
As the day passes and the students discover the remains of an old fishing village on the atoll, they are no closer to finding a way to help repair their boat. With no one else around, the group spits up to cover more ground, but when three coeds notice that they are no longer being supervised, they go out to the water to have some adult fun. While they are focused on each other and not what is lurking in the water around them, they are attacked by what appears to be two sharks. Not knowing what is happening back on the boat, Mrs. Babish keeps an eye on the atoll and wonders what is taking the group so long. But when she loses the only person on the boat that can repair it, she starts to believe that there is something much worse happening to her and the students.
2-Headed Shark Attack follows a group of classmates that are on the adventure of a life time. With Professor Babish at the helm, everyone is out to have a good time, but when their boat gets disabled, they have to find a way to get it fixed, and quickly. Being stranded in shark infested waters, the group finds an atoll and plans to make way for it as they are running low on supplies. As they make landfall, they notice that it is deserted and does not have enough supplies to help with the repairs on their boat. Getting back on track is their main priority, but when they notice that they are being stalked by a large creature, they decide that they might be safer waiting it out. The mutated shark has a different plan however as it targets everything in the water that is moving, along with the reef that is holding the atoll above water. It becomes a game of chess with the shark and it is not willing to wait too long before its next meal and starts to challenge the integrity of the atoll and the students on it.
Some people may ask why. I would answer why not? One of the fiercest predators of the ocean is given an extra advantage, another head. What could be more frightening than that…right? Without knowing what they are really up against, the students have to put their faith in each other to survive, but for a situation where you could die any minute, it does not seem to be the best plan of action. Watching as several students regress, rather than grow is probably my favorite part of this movie. I cannot lie, I love seeing the stupid kids being eaten first and being left with the only couple of characters you should care about, then seeing them get chomped as well. It’s a great shark movie and even though the title says it all, it is still worth giving a view. Stay Scared!
