As you would expect, Steven Kang’s Sharks of the Corn is a miraculous case of “exactly what you think it is-itis”. The trailer is an exact revealing replica of the trailer in all of its glory. Sharks? Check. Corn? Check. Murders in the corn? Check. For better or way worst, Sharks of the Corn is exactly what your Friday needed.
The official synopsis for Sharks of the Corn goes like this:
“Strange things are happening in Druid Hills, Kentucky, known mainly for its voluminous corn output. Victims of monsters in cornfields begin cropping up, and witnesses are saying there are “large Great White sharks swimming in the corn stalks!” Meanwhile, serial killer Teddy Bo Lucas is arrested for killing dozens of people using shark jaws and teeth as weapons. Chief Vera Scheider [cult scream queen Shannon Stockin] is caught in the middle, trying to figure out if her missing twin sister Lorna might be one of them. When Teddy agrees to take her to one of his prime burial sites in a cornfield, an insane chain of events unfold that NO ONE is prepared for, pitting the Druid Hills townsfolk against an outrageous shark worshipping cult that is planning to take over the world, one cornfield at a time! And their main protectors are jaw-snapping SHARKS OF THE CORN! Executive Producer Ron [HOUSE SHARK] Bonk presents director Tim [TRUTH OR DARE?- A CRITICAL MADNESS] Ritter reuniting with Producers Larry Joe [TWISTED ILLUSIONS 2] Treadway and Al [KILLING SPREE] Nicolosi for the first time in many decades to bring you this demented mixmash of humor, terror, and pure adrenaline rush shark action! Pop your corn, the shark movie of the year is here!”
I’m not going to lie. I’m going to watch the absolute hell out of this film. The very same week that we get the news about Elizabeth Banks beginning production on Cocaine Bear, we get this. Life is pretty crap… except in shining golden moments like this.
Sharks of the Corn hits store shelves on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 6.
