It appears Asylum is into the mega/super shark movie business, apparently having invested in a prop or graphic that still hasn't paid for itself. What is the size of this thing? Initially (see front cover) this thing attacks and swallows two skiers whole. Then the next thing you know a far smaller version has a hold of a guy's leg while he attempts to punch it in its nose. In one scene it has a hold of an underwater diver's leg then in the next frame the diver is swimming away with no visible damage to the leg. And how does something this big do shallow water attacks?

Once we get past the typical Asylum bad production stuff, we have a decent "B-" grade shark movie. The sound track was fairly decent. I like the metal to give the film a grindhouse feel. A crew of hard body college students get stranded on what could be "Gilligan's Island" in the South Pacific, one that had former residents. They talk about shark feeding frenzies and cannibals. Girls in bikinis and guys with developed pecks. The island shows signs of fairly recent habitation and is manicured. There are boats that need repair at a dock. Once fixed they can be used for rescue or for boat races to litter the sea with shark food. To add to their woes, the tropical paradise is subject to tremors. The shark special effects ranged from laughable (head on 2 headed shark swimming) to pretty decent (stock footage of a real shark). Ample cleavage shots of Kate (Brooke Hogan) throughout the entire film (Hulk's daughter who also can't act).

Island tremor special effects consisted of rumbling noises, camera shaking, and people falling down. The funny part was the scenes of people being eaten. The second head added the needed camp cheese for the film that was missing in "Super Shark".

F-bomb, girls kissing/groping, nudity (Anna Jackson, Amber English)

On a sea faring trip, a bunch of college students are marooned on an atoll which begins to sink. That's bad enough but unfortunately for them a killer shark is on the prowl. The Captain of the ship and his wife try to lead the students to safety but one by one they are picked of by the shark. Having two heads is dead handy (pun intended) for the killer fish and takes great pride with the slaughter including water skiers and topless co-eds.

The acting at far times is woeful but the main leads (Carmen Electra and Brooke Hogan) aren't bad and it's terrific to see another O'Connell brother (Charlie) getting killed by another creature from the sea like his brother Jerry in Piranha 3D. Thankfully for Charlie he doesn't lose his 'John Thomas' like Jerry did.

The CGI shark is effective and the close up rubber version isn't too bad. The blood runs in rivers and there are plenty of detached limbs as well so if you like your creature pics gruesome this one should satisfy you.

2 Headed Shark Attack is everything we've come to love/loathe/expect from the Asylum. Quite easily their best!

It falls very comfortably into 'its so bad its good' territory, for a number of reasons;

1. The gormless acting is aplenty in this titular tale of mutant shark dining habits. Carmen Electra was obviously solely employed for her assets and not her acting talent. I honestly can't even remember her character's name or occupation in this movie, a fact that doesn't surprise me due to her lack of credible dialogue to the 'storyline'.

2. Charlie O'Connell's character's lust for scrap metal on the atoll was more than enough fuel for our belly laughs when watching this movie, not to mention the life threatening graze he sustains to his leg later on. Hilarious!!! Why was he even looking for his precious scrap metal in the first place? I honestly don't remember or even care!

3. Special mention to Brooke Hogan also, proving to be the only half decent actor in this movie and not just good eye candy.

Expendable extras aplenty, trashy CGI, even trashier reaction acting, guiltless nudity and a mechanical 2 headed shark thrown in for good measure. All ingredients for a movie so stupid it begs to be dissected by even the most amateurish critic in the most humorous way possible!

Lastly another special mention goes to Corinne Nobili, whose character (spoiler*) was so stupidly killed off during the final scene. One of the few characters to genuinely hold my interest throughout the movie.

Ok, so you are looking for an ironic chuckle, and want to check out some cheesy b movies. This isn't one of them. It's just not very good, even by the low standards afforded to the genre.

What could be more terrifying than a a great white shark? I'll tell you what, a great white shark with two heads, that's what! As one character points out that's twice as many teeth.
This is the Asylum on top form with a fantastically daffy concept, better than their usual CGI and even the innovative use of a big rubber shark head.
This is not a normal 4 star movie. It has 4 The Asylum stars, which only apply to things made for TV on ultra low budgets.

Some of the effects are a bit dodgy, but you don't buy Asylum films for Oscar-winning f/x work.

I'm shallow enough to have bought it for "large numbers of 20-something girls in bikinis", oh yes and in the hope that the script would give Brooke Hogan a bit more to work with than Sand Sharks did. It didn't disappoint there either, since Carmen and she get to play the two "slightly older and more sensible" roles which they do.

Also the idea of an atoll that collapses because the coral under it died makes some sense (the biggest issue here is that the island isn't an atoll; those are the ones that are "O" shaped with a shallow piece in the middle).

Asylum are guilty of self-consciously aiming at cult status, but of their 3 movies I've seen on 4Music, this one is easily the best, and the only one for which I bought the DVD. You think "Scuttle! Scuttle!" is bad dialogue? It's no worse than Jurassic Park, where Laura Dern has to "Giggle! Giggle!", and Jeff Goldblum keeps idiotically mumbling, "Numbers, Numbers!" (or am I confusing it with Pi?). The FX on 2HSA are Asylum's best, too.

OK, Sandsharks is technically good, but it's only a variant on Tremors.

Well where should we start? I had gone into this film with such high hopes. (obvious sarcasm, you may continue)

Leaving aside the pitiful acting and the awful CGI, this film is still beyond dreadful just in the way of common sense and the dialogue throughout the film.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD

The boat has stopped in the sea due to a breach in the hull, but is not sinking, yet has no mechanical failure - so why not sail away? When Brooke Hogan falls down and is injured, he has a cut the size of a penny on his knee, yet has to be returned to the boat? whata wimp. The girl gets angry when the others leave her in the other boat, yet she follows them 2 seconds later. The main ship is parked less than a mile from the shoreline, yet it takes a 10 minute race in boats to reach there, and then they still end up back at the island? After one boat has been hit from the shark, the people on the ship out at sea decide its best to travel by speedboat to the shore, to tell the students not to go out onto the water......

There is a tonne more but quite frankly I can't be arsed to write much more. I shall leave you to watch it and realise it all yourself. This movie could have actually been a good 'bad' movie, but was turned out to be beyond crap.

To give them credit though, the CGI is still better than that of Jaws 3 :)

Nothing new in this film except extremely poor acting, poor plastic shark, nothing frightening and the usual predictable shark story. This time a group of thick College students go off on a boat which a shark follows and the rest is predictable. Makes Jaws look amazing by comparison and thats a very old film.
