Reviews

Made-for-TV Horror/Thriller directed by Griff Furst and starring Kristy Swanson (Flowers in the Attic; Hot Shots; Buffy the Vampire Slayer), D. B. Sweeney (Gardens of Stone; The Cutting Edge; Memphis Belle) & Robert Davi (Die Hard; License to Kill). Summer in the gorgeous swamplands of the Atchafalaya Basin. Lots of beautiful teens are at the beach the weekend before Gator Fest. That night an animal smuggling deal goes wrong and a large sea creature escapes into a swampy backwoods river. As the killings escalate it becomes a race against time to catch the monster and prevent the unwitting folks at the upcoming festival from being torn to shreds by a beast the likes of which no one has ever seen!

Format: DVD
Of the stupidest sounding of the 'creature feature collection' including Snow Beast and Monsterwolf hitting Tesco shelves near you, I was certainly expecting it to actually be the stupidest, and sure enough, the film opens with a giant tanker containing a giant shark that for no reason is being illegally traded to a small-town sheriff who has no motivation whatsoever for purchasing it. As expected, the shark escapes in a stupid manner and begins stupidly harrassing the gentle folk of the small town, or, as it actually is, restaurant. Also as expected, the shark is a massive racist and chomps its way through the entire black membership of the cast in the first few minutes before begrudgingly turning its unacceptable-values-laden jaws to the Latino and Asian groups and, God forbid, the whites. But turning the DVD player off after I'd finished watching the film I came away with the unsettling feeling that I'd just watched something worthwhile. Hold on, I thought, that film actually had a plot. And the characters were all entertaining and relatable, even the awful teenage ones after they got their s*** together, stopped copulating unnecessarily and started acting like human beings. The restaurant family in particular were really engaging and had a believable dynamic going on. And here's the amazing thing, the plot didn't submit itself to trite cliches, and the 'friendzone' strand wasn't really focused on and remained understandable for it. Yes, the plot is pretty much ripped straight from 'Jaws' (the protagonists are refused by a higher authority permission to close down local festivities on account of a giant, murderous shark) with a few extra trimmings, and it really has to take some weird turns to make everything fit, bit this film is a good, solid piece of entertainment, and that's all that matters. Though not for £18.99, which at the time of writing is the price here, but that's just evidence that whoever's responsible for pricing goods at Amazon is on meth.

Rachel Bouchard is the owner of The Gator Shed, a restaurant in a beautiful small swampland town. Watson is the local sheriff who has illegally imported a deadly shark which escapes into the swamp, the shark finds its way to the restaurant where it attacks and kills the alligators they keep along with a drunken local. The sheriff attempts to hide the fact that there's a shark and accuses Rachel's brother, Jason, of the murder. Determined to find the shark and prove Jason's innocence, Rachel, Jason, Rachel's boyfriend called Tyler and a mysterious stranger called Tommy set off to hunt the shark. Meanwhile Rachel's naive younger sister, Krystal, meets up with some other kids and hits the swamps in their boat. The shark happens to be on the loose just as the town is at its busiest, it's the 10th annual Gator Fest and all the horny teenagers have gathered.

The acting in Swamp Shark is of a much higher standard than a lot of other films of this type. Kristy Swanson delivers a good performance here as Rachel, this is the second made for tv shark attack film she has appeared in after Red Water in 2003. I think it's fair to say that Swanson's career has been quite disappointing after a very promising start, Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Deadly Friend, Flowers In The Attic, Hot Shots! and the lead in Buffy The Vampire Slayer made her quite a big star, she later appeared in films like The Chase, Higher Learning, The Phantom and Big Daddy. Dude, Where's My Car? in 2000 was the last successful film she was in, which is a shame as she is a good actress and she's still a good looking woman. D. B. Sweeney is also likeable as Tommy, Sweeney is another good actor that had a good start to his career but has found good roles hard to find in recent years.

Format: DVD
I popped this in the DVD player with an open mind, then the menu screen came on, with some idiotic hillbilly chase music tinkiling away in the background. Lesser film fans might have ejected the disc at that point and used it to prop a table up, but not me; I'm made of sterner stuff, me, and anyway, it was called SWAMP SHARK! How could I not watch it?

Imagine my considerable surprise then when I got to watch an entertaining and likeable killer shark film. Hooray.

The fun begins immediately, and crazily, with a large heavily-armoured shark being transported in a water tanker, to be sold to a crooked sherriff. Why does he want the shark? Who cares, certainly not the scriptwriters. Anyway, the shark's not too keen on being in his little tanker and so makes a ruckus, causing the cylindrical tank he is trapped in to fall off the lorry, roll down a hill, squishing some people on the way, and splash down in the swamp, where the tank breaks in half and El Sharko swims happily off.

The rest of the story writes itself; essentially JAWS in the swamp, the shark swims about eating people, the police don't believe or are trying to cover it up while Kristy Swanson's restaurant-owning family try to track it down and kill it before it can munch on the hundreds of people on boats and rubber rings enjoying the Gator Fest. And there you have it; SWAMP SHARK!

But it's actually pretty good. There is nothing at all original here [apart perhaps from the final method of killing the beast], and the special effects and gore are variable at best. The characters though are engaging and interesting, the script is reasonable, even occasionally funny when it means to be. The sound mix is good [for a change], and some parts, like the climax, are mildly exciting.
