When a lifeguard catches wind of a dangerous anomaly off the coast of San Diego, she commissions a band of unlikely heroes to assist her on a suicide mission to save the west coast from total destruction.
Rachele Brooke Smith,
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.
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.Written by
When the kids find the web page about the lighthouse keeper's wife, there's a brief shot of the computer screen. The news page links to several other topics that sound like Syfy movies: Alligator attacks in Louisiana swamps, Ex-government scientists control weather. There's also a link to "People watching science fiction movie pause screen to read unimportant text". See more »
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.

Any body of water is potentially a shark zone now...
Another one of those gut-wrenching horrible, but oh-so-fun-to-watch, bad monster movies from the SyFy Channel. This time it is a shark that comes back as a ghost to wreck havoc and terror on a small coastal village.
Yeah, that was basically the storyline here. And seriously, who comes up with these ideas. It is so far fetched that it is actually hilarious to watch, and the storyline is so bad that you can't help but take the entire movie to be nothing more than a spoof.
A group of rednecks are out fishing when they catch a great white shark. But unable to haul it aboard their fishing vessel, they decide to kill the shark using a gun, a crossbow and a hand grenade. Mortally wounded, the shark swims off to an ancient cavern where it finally dies. But the mysterious runes on the wall in the cavern bring the shark back from death, returning as an undead ghost shark with a ferocious appetite for human flesh. With its newfound ghostly powers, the shark can appear anywhere that has water - be it fresh or salt water (oddly enough!).
The effects in "Ghost Shark" were laughable, as with most movies from the SyFy Channel, but still, it is enjoyable, because the story is so out there. And there were some really hilarious scenes where the shark gobbles up people or maul them. Watch it for yourself, trust me, you will be laughing hard at times.
The acting in the movie was actually quite good, and I must admit that it was Richard Moll that initially lured me to this movie. But it turned out to be yet another of those goofy SyFy movies that you just love to hate and won't admit to have fun watching.
You know what you get here, given the title of the movie in itself.
