This movie is about a group of people who get trapped in a Supermarket after a Tsunami hits the coast of Queensland, Australia. But they soon find out that they have more to worry about than being in a flooded grocery store, there's 12 foot sharks swimming around them, and it's hungry. Written by

After the Tsunami hits the supermarket, the camera pans back showing the devastation and passes over the top of the shelves with stuff washed up and shows a pair of thongs sitting upright and next to each other like someone just slipped them off. See more »

Why does it keep doing that, just circling?
Cause It's not sure what we are. It's curious.
Curious about what, sharks are only curious about one thing. It's trying to decide if were food or not!

Some shark movies are laughable, cheesy, and way too far fetched (Sharktopus). Some shark movies and horror movies in general can just be unbelievably bad. This Australian film was a pleasant surprise. There wasn't scantily clad girls walking around topless (Piranha) or cheap thrills. This had some genuine pillow clenches, it had some unpredictability, great acting, and had a location I had not seen before in a shark movie, Australia. Most importantly it had characters I actually cared about! There is more to this shark flick than just sharp teeth and flesh. Dig your teeth into this film if you are a thriller, horror, shark movie fan.
