Storyline

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.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Finch: You think ghosts are logical Sherriff?
Sheriff Martin: Who said anything about ghosts Finch?
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.
Sheriff Martin: Well maybe if you dried out occasionally, your words might actually mean something.

Shark Ghosts are Fun!
23 August 2013 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

In the opening minutes, expect a trio of southern-accented boaters ("rednecks") to bite the dust. They kill a great white shark, which turns into a blue-glowing "Ghost Shark". Considering later events, the story might have been better off starting with the flashback which occurs near the end. For whatever reasons, the beach community "Smallport" is quickly terrorized. Ghost sharks need to eat, too. This one, being spiritual, is not restricted to the beach. It manifests itself wherever water accumulates...

A swimming pool party, bikini car wash, leaky sink and bathtub are among the areas haunted...

Versatile director Griff Furst handles this assignment very well. The likable cast is led by Dave Davis (as Blaise Parker) and Mackenzie Rosman (as Ava Reid), both going places. Creepy lighthouse keeper Richard Moll (as Darnell Finch) may be able to solve the mystery, if he can stay sober (and stop shouting) long enough. If spirits are real and all dogs go to Heaven, the world must embrace and accept ghost sharks. The story doesn't take full advantage of the possibilities, but the shark attacks are highly amusing.

****** Ghost Shark (8/22/13) G.E. Furst ~ Dave Davis, Mackenzie Rosman, Richard Moll, Sloane Coe
