I think we can all agree that killer shark movies have been done to death, and they took the corpse to continue to beat it. We seen sharks in tornados, ghost sharks, zombie sharks, and it wouldn’t surprise me if there wasn’t sharks in space. So when I heard news of Sharks of the Corn also known as Stephen Kang’s Sharks of the Corn, I had to know more.
So before going into it, I expected a rip off of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn with sharks instead of killer kids. What we got however was not even close to that. After the titles which features a real live Shark swimming through the corn(I swear, it’s really real), we dive into the movie where various people go into cornfields and get killed by sharks.
Subsequent to that, there is a serial killer going around murdering people. Want to guess his weapon of choice? If you guessed knife or gun, you are way off. Nope his weapon is a jawbone of a shark. He also thinks himself as a shark. His motive is to use the power of Stonehenge to resurrect the shark goddess. He is actually the best character in this movie.
We see the rest of the cast of colorful characters such as mob bosses, a shark cult, and there is even a sasquatch lurking around for some reasons. The movie is just as bad as you expect, so it’s best to lower your expectations. Most of the effects are just computer generated blood splatters during the shark attacks. There is one scene when the shark serial killer gets arrested, and a camera is excessively taking pictures for some reason. Then there is the ending, which just yeah, I can’t put it in words.
Unless out of morbid curiousity, or if you enjoy low budget killer shark movies, I would not recommend this movie. I took one for the team to warn you away, but if you decide to watch on your own, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I’ll catch you on the next Terrible Thursday where I will tackle Amityville in Space which comes out in July. May the gods have mercy on my soul.
Till next time, stay scared!!
