This is one of the ones that started it all for me. A modern classic in cheesy goodness. Deborah (not Debbie for a long time now) Gibson plays a scientist piloting a small sub who discovers a giant prehistoric shark and octopus who seem to be locked in combat frozen within a giant glacier. When the U.S. Government accidentally thaws out the two behemoth they go on a world wide rampage of destruction, however the government in a last ditch effort contract Gibson, and some other scientists to track down the creatures before they destroy everything else. What makes this movie work so well, is what Asylum does best. This film knows it’s a cheesy made for TV monster movie, and has as much fun with it as possible. From intentionally bad dialogue, to batshit outrageous scenes that involve sharks breaching jets, ships, bridges, octopus attacks on oil rigs…and subs. It’s bad CGI, but done mostly in the dark water, so it’s forgivable as much as it is laughable, as one can expect from negative budget 2009. This was shown on Syfy recently as part of a campaign to unleash another turd titled “Sharknado: The 4th”. If you missed out, you owe it to yourself to watch this one. It’s just so damn fun. Watch the trailer below to see what I am talking about! 5 out of 5 cheese curds. No really… it’s so bad it’s amazing! It’s one of my favorites!
