Jersey Shore Shark Attack [Blu-Ray] John Shepphird
Much to the chagrin of everyone without their own YouTube video, MTV's The Jersey Shore has been riding the wave of popularity since 2009, although it was recently cancelled post-Snooki pregnancy. In 2010, the cast was even named on Barbara Walters' Ten Most Fascinating People list. It should come as no surprise that director John Shepphird decided to cash-in on this craze and whipped together Jersey Shore Shark Attack for the American SyFy Channel. Known for churning out pseudo-horror flicks with bad scripts, horrible acting and laughable special effects, this latest addition to their line-up (which includes Silent Venom, Warbirds, Sharktopus, Dinoshark and Mansquito) is a no-brainer. Unfortunately, none of the original MTV cast members are actually featured, leaving the sharks to gobble up trashy B-movie actor caricatures instead. Some of the referential names include the Complication (Jeremy Luke), Nooki (Melissa Molinaro), Donnie (Joey Russo), Paulie Balzac (Daniel Booko), J-Moni (Alex Mauriello) and BJ (Audi Resendez). And each character does their best to channel the oily archetype namesakes in as broad and clichéd a manner as possible. As far as the "plot," trouble starts when an illegal coastal drilling operation unleashes a horde of man-eating albino bull sharks, which leads to mysterious disappearances and stray body parts washing ashore. When the Guidos find a torso of one of their friends, they immediately jump into action in an effort to save the day ― something we all imagine the cast members of the Jersey Shore capable of. Complete with horrible CGI sharks, campy blood and gore, girls in bikinis and an appearance from a former teen idol (Joey Fatone, of *NSYNC), it's exactly what you'd expect from the director that also brought us Chupacabra Terror. Special features include an audio commentary from the producers and director, as well as an "on set" featurette where you can see the kids having a great time while filming. (Anchor Bay)
