Sharks are having the best decade ever. Although Steven Spielberg made you want to stay out of the water, a whole new generation of filmmakers is interested in making you afraid of sand, Malibu, and, now, ski resorts. It seems like the next logical step in the subgenre’s progression if you ask me. After all, someone is already stuck them in a tornado, so why not have them flopping around inside an avalanche? It’s all about moving forward.
“Transmorphers” director Scott Wheeler and “Malibu Shark Attack” writer Keith Shaw are hoping you’re ready for “Avalanche Sharks,” a film which finds these massive oceanic killers attacking scantily-clad individuals at a ski resort during Bikini Snow Day. Yes, Bikini Snow Day. I swear I haven’t had anything to drink this morning. I wouldn’t believe me, either.
Here’s the official synopsis:
After a horrific avalanche, the staff at Twin Pines Ski Resort starts to receive reports of missing people and creatures that move beneath the snow. As the body count piles up, the management tries to cover up the situation, which leads to disaster on their busiest day of the year: Bikini Snow Day.
Spring break in the mountains: snowboarding, beer, drunken co-eds in bikinis. As the yearly Bikini Ski Day party descends on a small mountain town, something lurks beneath the snow. When an unwitting rider causes an avalanche, it awakens a huge, menacing, pre-historic Snow Shark! With a newfound taste for human flesh, the Snow Shark picks off the snow bunnies mercilessly. Cut off from help by mountainous terrain and blinding snow, the local sheriff must make an unlikely alliance with a motley crew of snowboarders to take down the Snow Shark before the white hills run red with blood!
Although there’s no footage to speak of just yet, you can have a look at the teaser poster embedded below. Gotta love a girl who’s willing to square off against a shark with a machete and a ski pole. “Avalanche Sharks” could arrive by the end of the year, but there’s always the chance it could get pushed into next year. Rumor has it that the film is a sequel to “Sand Sharks,” though nobody has confirmed that report with me as of this writing.
The aforementioned teaser poster rests below.
