Australian Sharks Attack in the Debut Trailer for Andrew Traucki’s The Reef

I’ll be blunt: Director Andrew Traucki’s Australian horror flick “The Reef” looks remarkably similar to Chris Kentis’ “Open Water”, a film that contains an almost identical aquatic premise. Of course, the former seems more concerned with floating and surviving, while the latter was much more interested in shallow bickering and martial dysfunction. Still, the similarities are almost too hard to ignore, especially once the embedded trailer begins to explore the horrors of this ill-fated excursion into the deep blue sea. If you’re still curious, the clip awaits. Quiet Earth is responsible for catching this fish.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    Aaah man, sharks don't need this right now, they are in serious trouble as it is and any more negative publicity is just going to make it that more difficult to get the protection they desperately need. Educate yourself, view http://www.sharks.org.za
