Zombie Shark is a 2015 American horror feature film directed by Misty Talley (Mississippi River Sharks; Ozark Sharks; editor of Ghost Shark; Arachnoquake) from a screenplay by Greg Mitchell (SnakeHead Swamp) for Active Entertainment. It is also known as Shark Island and Zombie Shark: The Swimming Dead.
The film should not be confused with the 2013 Spanish production Tiburón Zombie – La pelíca, also known as Zombie Shark.
A perfect getaway for four friends turns into survival when they fight an experimental shark…
“The cast did a surprisingly good job, bringing as much credibility as they could to a film about a bunch of people being menaced by zombie sharks. Jason London and Laura Cayouette are both memorable as representatives of the establishment. Cassie Steele and Sloane Coe were totally believable as sisters and brought so much commitment to their roles that the film’s ending was unexpectedly poignant.” Lisa Marie Bowman, Through the Shattered Lens
“A rubber severed shark head puppet proves a more special effect than anything computer-generated. The digital sharks look unfinished, mostly 2D, and lazily inserted into the film. Fins frequently cut through the water without even leaving a wake. Worst of all, the sharks rarely even look zombie-like.” Foywonder, Dread Central
“Zombie sharks? Cool. Zombie sharks that turn humans into zombies? Even cooler. Unfortunately, there’s like seven zombies in the whole damn movie … Lots of boring science, bored looking actors, slightly amusing supporting cast, a few cool kills, ridiculous ending (which is the only part of the movie I loved); basically your standard Syfy shark flick…” Dan D., Letterboxd
