Hilarious and campy...
30 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

"Zombie Shark" is one of those types of movies that are so bad that it is actually fun to watch. And it makes you wonder just who comes up with the idea for such a movie.

As a movie shown on the SyFy Channel then you know exactly what you are getting yourself into, both entertainment-wise and effect-wise.

A group of young people travel to an exotic Island for a vacation, but they come to an island where the waters are filled with zombie sharks, and soon the infection spreads to land.

Yep, it is yet another one of those wacky movies that SyFy Channel is widely known for. And you either hate them for the questionable movies that they might be, or you love it for its glorious campy cheesiness.

The effects in "Zombie Shark" was awful, especially the CGI animations. It just baffled me that a movie made in 2015 can have such inadequate, outdated and lousy CGI effects.

As for the acting, well, it was as to be expected. And with Jason London at the lead, you were in for a fun, albeit campy shark thrill-ride.

All in all, a fun enough movie if you enjoy these SyFy Channel movies.
