Jersey Shore Shark Attack delivers the gory guido fun
21 August 2012 | by rgblakeySee all my reviews

Sometimes movies are the most entertaining when they are at their most ridiculous. There have been numerous Shark themed movies and almost all of them have taken a strange silly approach with films like Sharktopus and the latest Jersey Shore Shark Attack. Can it possible deliver something of merit when you take the cheesy shark attack film and mix it with the unexplainably popular Jersey Shore premise?

Jersey Shore Shark Attack follows the Guido's of the Jersey Shore as they are forced to team up with the Preppies to fend off giant man-eating sharks as they return again for what was only thought to be legend of the 1961 Jersey Shore attacks. The premise pretty much says it all and delivers exactly what you think it will. This is by no means a good movie, but instead one of those that will appeal to the fans of the cheesy lame horror genre and most likely hated by everyone else. Designed as a spoof of the Jersey Shore series crumpled together with a low budget version of JAWS, this movie is actually pretty entertaining. As someone who cannot stand the Jersey Shore this movie not only satisfies with the mockery, but also gives the joy of watching them suffer the over the top demise of man eating sharks. This filmed aired as one of the SyFy channel movies, but does manage to sport much better effects than some of their previous films. There are some pretty decent kills, while the rest of them are so corny and over the top it is a blast that has to be seen.

Surprisingly enough this film sports a decent supporting cast of Jack Scalia, Paul Sorvino, William Atherton, Tony Sirico as well as cameos by Joey Fatone and Vinny Guadagnino, but still never seems to take itself too serious hence keeping the great cheese together. If you are fans of over the top cheese with films like Sharktopus or can't stand the Jersey Shore (like as well) then this is a must see bloody good time.
