Experimenting with shark DNA in his remote laboratory to discover the cure for end-stage diseases, the zealous bio-scientist, Dr Preston King, invites a team of doctors, his wife, and her latest boyfriend to the island to witness the progress of his research. But, there, the unsuspecting visitors will come face-to-face with the true nature of King's highly questionable procedures, as a monstrous half-man/half-shark hybrid who knows no fear roams the area, hungry for human flesh. Is there an escape from the powerful jaws of the hideous Hammerhead? Written by Nick Riganas

This was the funniest COMEDY movie this year
19 June 2005 | by mkstud60See all my reviews

This was a really funny movie.

Every 1 in the movie was trying to be serious that is what made this movie so funny. I mean come on a shark's head on a human body. Can it get any funnier. Good job Sci-Fi keep the comedy movies coming. I never thought movies could get anymore retarded. If they keep it up they will have to rename the sci fie channel the comedy sci fi channel or something like that.

I cant wait 4 the next blockbuster movie from sci fi.

Ill be ready with a bowl of popcorn and a case of beer or a bottle of liquor and Ill be ready to laugh it up again!!!
