A tropical singles retreat takes a terrifying turn when guests realize a poisonous shark is infesting the surrounding water. Not only will it rip apart its victims, but it also uses projectile acid to hunt - in and out of the water.
Survivors escape to a deserted atoll, after their boat during a Semester at Sea ship is sunk by a mutated two-headed shark. But when the atoll starts flooding, no one is safe from the double jaws of the monster.
When rednecks on a fishing trip kill a great white shark, its spirit comes back for revenge, and soon turns its sights on the town of Smallport. Teenage Ava, her younger sister Cicely and friend Blaise witness the start of the ghost shark's rampage but the authorities don't believe their story. With the help of a crotchety lighthouse keeper named Finch the teens discover that the spectral shark can hunt wherever there's water, and that the town's dark past may provide the clues they need to defeat it.

Towards the end of the film, Finch tells Ava that, since her dad fired the shot that killed the shark (and he's dead now), she has to be the one to kill the ghost shark. Ava's dad didn't kill the shark; Ava's dad owned the boat that the guy who did kill the shark hired. If anything, Ava's dad tried to stop the other guy from killing the shark. See more »
You think ghosts are logical Sherriff?
Who said anything about ghosts Finch?
I did. You know that's the trouble with people like you sheriff, never want to deal with the truth 'till its too late. Ghosts are real, as real as the lies this town is buil on, as real as the price were gonna to pay for those sins. You mark my words, you mark my words.
Well maybe if you dried out occasionally, your words might actually mean something.

Ghost Shark is pretty self-explanatory. It's the ghost of a shark eating people. I can't elaborate any other details because if you want to see it, then you already turned on the TV. Now, I do have a weak spot for SyFy films just because they are literally cinematic junk food. Ghost Shark fulfills some of that ridiculousness you expect in these movies, but it just misses the mark to really make an impression and be a fun Saturday night movie.
Good: I do like the plot because of how out there it is and it at least stands out from other shark movies. There are flairs of fun in here where the shark pops up in any place that has water which leads to a lot of funny scenes. Props for Richard Moll for giving it his all.
Bad: Despite its crazy premise, it still just meanders and concentrates on some teenagers that just badly act through every scene. I just feel that it should have gone crazier with the premise of a ghost shark popping up in any kind of water.
Overall, it has its fun moments, but it concentrates on dull exposition and bad acting that it lacks the campy fun that some other movies have.
