Happy Shark Week everybody! It’s the most fin-derful time of the year, and since The Meg is foolishly coming out two weeks after Shark Week, we’re celebrating instead with one of the craziest Sci-Fi Original Movie-level shark flicks out there – Shark Attack 3: Megalodon!
Starring a pre-fame John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Torchwood), Megalodon sees a Playa del Rey beach resort beset by a giant, roving shark thought extinct – now revived with the power of blown-up stock footage. Along with a sexy paleontologist and a grizzled ex-Navy John McCain-type, Captain Jack is ready to kill some sharks and make lewd remarks to costars!
As Jaws-y a Jaws ripoff as you’ll ever see, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon is an unexpected bad-cinema curio we can’t help biting into. Check out our podcast, along with our custom cocktail and drinking game!
(Thanks to our sponsor Overcast as part of the Chicago Podcast Coop!)
DRINKING RULES FOR SHARK ATTACK 3: MEGALODON:
- Any time you see a Mexican flag conspicuously draped somewhere
- Every time you see stock footage of a shark (drink twice if an unsuspecting victim just falls into the shark’s open maw)
- Whenever characters make out
FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:
Ben says to Cat on the even of the big shark hunt, “You know, I’m really wired. How about I…. take you home and eat your pussy?”
Join us next time as we switch gears for weirder, artier climes – we’re watching Sean Penn go from washed-up rock star to Nazi killer in Paolo Sorrentino’s This Must Be the Place!
