Dinoshark is nothing but Big-ass Jaws “We're gonna need a bigger helicopter” without the talent, the acting, the effects, or the directing. This low budget sort of monster movie airs Saturday August 18th at 6 p.m on Space. I can't resist saying Dinoshark bites … or stinks worse than chum. Not that it is not a hoot if you enjoy really clumsy, horrible movies. Look for producer and schlockmeister Roger Corman in a small role.
Set in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, Dinoshark features a bunch of characters in their late twenties, none of whom seems to have accomplished much. Hell, even the blonde with a Princeton degree in Marine Biology doesn't blink when she is offered the job of social director at a local resort. Stuff happens and some sort of big ass dinosaur era shark starts gobbling up the locals, including of course the girl friend of a local boat guy. The neat thing about dinoshark is he likes to do dolphin like belly flips when he is happy.
Boat guy Trace (Eric Balfour of Nothing You'd Remember Him In) and biologist Carol (Iva Hasperger of Even Lousier Credits) decide to prove there is a dinoshark, show the authorities they got it all wrong, and avenge their friend's death. Will they be able to do it in time to stop dinoshark from chomping on a few of the water polo players having a game in the middle of the marina? How many modes of transportation will dinoshark eat before the end?
Dinoshark is part of the network's Shark Weekend Marathon which starts at 8 a.m and ends Sunday at 6 p.m. The marathon also includes Jersey Shore Shark Attack Saturday at noon, The movie premiere of Sharktopus at 10 p.m., and the premiere of Swamp Shark on Sunday the 19th at 4 p.m.
