I love a Cajun horror movie!
25 June 2011 | by jerrilynnbthomasSee all my reviews

A Syfy movie is typically hit or miss. They finally have an interesting script. I'm most likely biased because I'm from Louisiana.

The food, music, interaction between the cast and a killer shark in the swamp have kept me glued to the screen.

Swamp Shark is character driven instead of creature driven. The previous summer premiere movies like Moby Dick bored the heck out of me.

It is really nice to watch a movie about the Cajun country in which the characters accent is not a miss. Not everyone from Louisiana has a thick Cajun accent.

My only beef is that the ending could have been better.
