Sharknado provocateurs Syfy have released a trailer for their next masterpiece: Ghost Shark. According to Entertainment Weekly the TV movie will be released in August 22nd and, like all worthy art, will contain flaws that only serve to enhance its natural beauty.
I didn’t actually listen to the trailer while watching it but I gather that this truer-than-life cinematic experience will center around a shark that is also a ghost. The ghost shark is still capable of biting people, an apt metaphor for these unpleasant times, as we as one people shake our fists in the face of God, raging in our futile attempts to prevent the eclipse of death. Perhaps in Ghost Shark we can be shown the way?
Spoilers ahe…just kidding.
Did I mention that it stars Mackenzie Rosman aka tiny Ruthie Camden from 7th Heaven? Do I feel confident in speculating that this is essentially an extension of that television show’s storyline? I do.
Here is something fantastic that the people behind this film have said:
Thomas Vitale, Syfy’s Executive Vice President of programming and original movies, says that the creativity behind the latest TV-movie to be added to the lengthy list of shark hits was inspired by an idea from his 7-year-old daughter.
Did anyone watch Sharknado? Was it fun?
Chris Lough is…there are none left who know.
