The movie stars Sarah French (Death House; Insectula!; Zombie Pirates), Peter Baldo and Kathryn Sue Young (Amityville ExorcismSharkenstein; Amityville Death House).

Lucinda Regis (Sarah French), Director of Development at MALCO Oceanic Research, becomes the target of a dangerous killer after unravelling a sinister plot to inject sharks with human DNA…

Michael Raso, the producer and the owner of Camp Motion Pictures, commented: “I am thrilled to be working once again with Mark Polonia, whose 1987 horror feature Splatter Farm is a staple in my Camp Retro ‘80s line of do-it-yourself micro-budget features and a must-own movie for fans of cult cinema. Mark is a seasoned director with a track record of delivering exactly the elements genre fans are looking for, and his timeless sensibility should ensure Land Shark appeals to horror fans of this and subsequent generations.”

“Despite being overly silly and cheesy and obvious about its low-budget origins, there’s a lot more to like here than expected playing into those tropes which make for a wholly enjoyable effort in that style. Give this a look if you’re into these cheesy killer shark movies or are a fan of the creative crew…” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation
