Human greed and a rapacious local fracking company fracture a subterranean water pocket in Arkansas, releasing deadly amphibious sharks from the depths of prehistory. Now, an unsuspecting group of female prisoners on work detail and their guards find themselves up against the voracious apex predators that infest the broad Arkansas bayou, and absolutely no one is safe. These blood-thirsty sharks rule the swamps. Who shall live and who shall die in the Sharkansas women's prison massacre? Written by Nick Riganas

Sharkansas Women's Prison Massacre: Crap on a biscuit
27 October 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Sharks again, really? This time Traci "Controversy magnet" Lords and Dominique "It almost looked like I was going to have a decent career" Swain star in yet another shark film.

When a group of female prisoners transport gets hijacked it comes down to them and the prison guards to team up to fight off the onslaught of "Wait for it" Sharkasaurus's. Prehistoric sharks that can move through land as easily as water! As you can imagine it's pretty dire and the distinct lack of budget cripples it. If you can't afford to make a movie about these beasties then simply don't!

Ironically the most famous performers in this film are the worst actors, maybe they just can't be assed anymore. Could you if you were in a movie called Sharkansas Women's Prison Massacre?

The Good:

Couple of decent enough performances

The Bad:

WTF level cgi

Generic, clichéd, the works

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Every shark movie creator thinks that a giant shark can swim & sneak up on people in a foot of water

Men are non-committal, women are mysterious

Traci Lords should have stuck to porn
