Movie Summary

David R. Ellis
A sexy summer weekend turns into a blood-soaked nightmare for a group of college students hunted by blood-thirsty underwater predators in Shark Night 3-D, a terrifying thrill-ride featuring a red-hot young cast. Arriving by boat at her family’s Louisiana lake island cabin, Sara (Sara Paxton) and her friends quickly strip down to their swimsuits for a weekend of fun in the sun. But when star football player Malik (Sinqua Walls) stumbles from the saltwater lake with his arm torn off, the party mood suddenly darkens. Nick (Dustin Milligan), a shy pre-med student, finds himself taking charge—administering first aid and informing Sara they don’t have a minute to spare to get Malik to a hospital on the other side of the lake. Setting out in a tiny speedboat, the college friends quickly discover the lake has been stocked with hundreds of massive, flesh-eating sharks. When the boat malfunctions in mid-trip, marooning them without medical care or a way to call for help, they are shocked to find that it has been deliberately sabotaged. As they face one gruesome attack after another, it becomes frighteningly clear that someone is engineering a deadly plot aimed at killing them all. With their options for rescue dwindling, Sara and the others struggle to fend off the sharks, get help and stay alive long enough to reach the safety of dry land.moreless

    Stay past the credits, though, and you'll find a tongue-in-cheek rap video recap with the cast - and directed by star Dustin Milligan - that carries the kind of spoofy insouciance ...

    Unlike his "Snakes on a Plane," director David R. Ellis' sharks-in-a-lake thriller displays little sense of its scenario's camp potential. Gore, too, is in short supply on account ...
