Reviews [click links to read more]:
“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.” 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.” 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.
