You’ve seen Nazi zombies before and you’ve seen shark-tornados but have you seen Nazi Zombies riding flying sharks? You soon will. The film is called Sky Sharks and its plot is as follows:
Deep in the ice of the Antarctic, a team of geologists uncover an old Nazi laboratory still intact where dark experiments had occurred. In order to conquer the world, the Nazis created modified sharks who were able to fly and whose riders are genetically mutated, undead super-humans.
A military task force called “Dead Flesh Four“ – reanimated US soldiers who fell in Vietnam – is put together to prevent world downfall.
Sky Sharks is one of those ‘so bad that it’s good’ type movies. Yet despite its lowly origins, the trailer of Sky Sharks was even featured at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
This year’s Cannes was marked by Cate Blanchett’s highly acclaimed lesbian drama Carol and Matthew McCoughny’s circle jerk of a film Sea of Trees, but the lesser-known Sky Sharks somehow slid under the radar. The fact that Sky Sharks wasn’t even named as a finalist is criminal enough, but with the Oscars just around the corner, an avalanche of critical acclaim is sure to follow. Even though the film is still in production and yet to be officially released, the concept in itself is award worthy.
Whereas films like Carol depict the struggle of sexual identity at time of ignorance and social uniformity, Sky Sharks depicts Nazi Zombies jumping from flying great whites and ripping out the hearts of unexpecting airline passengers. The underlying message is something we can all relate to: airline travel sucks balls.
Sky Sharks is still in production but with the talented director Marc Fehse, who was behind such classics like Killerbus and Sex, Dogz and Rock n Roll, this film will surely stun audiences around the world.
Expect a downloadable torrent for Sky Sharks at some point in 2017.
