‘The city of dreams becomes the city of nightmares!’
Los Angeles Shark Attack is a 2019 American action horror feature film about a man-eating shark menacing and terrorising beachgoers in L.A.
Written, edited and directed by Dustin Ferguson (The Amityville Legacy; Camp Blood 4 and 5; Meathook Massacre; Demon Dolls; et al), the movie was formerly titled Los Angeles Shark Attack.
The SoCal Cinema Production stars Raymond Williams, Brinke Stevens, Mia Scozzafave (Attack of the Unknown), Mel Novak (Ash and Bone; An Hour to Kill; Family Reunion), Maria Olsen (I Spit on Your Grave: Déjà Vu; et al) and Dawna Lee Heising (Amityville: Evil Never Dies; et al).
Meanwhile, we suspect Universal’s lawyers may pressure the filmmakers to change the title back to Los Angeles Shark Attack.
The beaches near Los Angeles have been the scene of several recent grisly mutilations. With the bodies drenched with water and scars not resembling any modern street weapon, the police begin to suspect it’s a rogue shark.
With the much anticipated grand opening of a new beachside resort quickly approaching and the bodies beginning to pile up, it is up to marine biologists Doctor Rebecca Mattei (Brinke Stevens) and her colleague Doctor Elaine Ripley (Vida Ghaffari) to help local authorities capture the animal before it’s too late.
