Storyline

Fiercely protective single-mom Meredith Hendricks happens to also be the best cop in her quiet town on Lake Tahoe. When a black-market exotic species dealer named Clint, is paroled from prison, something he let loose begins to make its presence known. Swimmers and land-lovers alike begin to become part of the food chain at an unbelievable rate. Meredith and the new man in her life, a biologist named Peter, begin to investigate these brutal attacks and discover that they're not just hunting one eating machine, but a whole family of them. After a documentary crew is devoured when they don't take the threat seriously, it's up to Meredith, Peter, and the unlikely hero, Clint, to stop the most dangerous thing on the planet: A mother protecting its young. Not everyone will make it out alive, but those who do will never forget this summer at Shark Lake. Written by Screen Media

B without the bite.....
15 December 2015 | by s3276169See all my reviews

Shark Lake is a B grade flick without the bite found in mainstream films like Jaws.

This film relies too much on munch-able eye candy in the form of scantily clad men and women, where a proper storyline, lots of action and accompanying quality creature effects, would have taken it so much further.

The acting ranges from average through to awful. This film would have been much better, for example, without the fake English shark hunter. A clichéd characterization that would make any real Brit wince.

So is there any basis on which on recommend Shark Lake? Well, its not utterly dreadful but its action scenes are so watered down (pardon the pun), that what should have been the driving force, in a film of this kind, is mostly absent. Three out of ten from me.
