After a botched attempt to secretly transport an ancient species of shark, a team of unscrupulous animal smugglers accidentally release the voracious man-eating machine into the warm waters of the Louisiana bayou. Now, only one short week before the popular Gator Fest, Sheriff Watson blames the local restaurant owner, Krystal Broussard, for the gruesome death of a resident, refusing to believe that a hungry shark is patrolling the river. But, the swift underwater beast is on the loose, and humans are his favourite prey. Who can stop the ferocious Swamp Shark? Written by Nick Riganas

lowest possible budget disgrace
26 June 2011 | by medicfx45See all my reviews

This was horrible. A predictable story, like Jaws and all similar type flicks. 2nd rate actors, with poor Christy Swanson, at the age of 40+ pretending to be a 20 year old with a boyfriend half her age. She is cute, but out of shape, excluding the plastic surgeries. A shark that swims at 100 miles an hour and small for the damage it causes is terrorizing a little town in Louisiana. Predictable situations. Teenagers who party, have sex and drink and fall victims to the monster. There is no significant gore, just some laughable decapitations, etc. This is an extremely low budget, made for TV, movie that will likely not satisfy you. It is watchable, if there is nothing else on, but it will remind you of films from the 40's, the only difference being that in the 40's the special effects were better.
