More Shark-Related Mayhem Surfaces in Director Russell Mulcahy’s Bait


Why are there so many shark movies all of a sudden? Does it have something to do with SyFy’s success with the “animals run amok” genre as of late? Probably not, but a guy can dream, can’t he? “Highlander” director Russell Mulcahy puts his own personal spin on the cinematic shark attack with his upcoming endeavor “Bait”. Will it offer up anything new? Who knows. But I trust Mulcahy, and I’m sure it will be a bloody good time.

Plot specifics about:

In a sleepy coastal resort community, shoppers at an underground supermarket find themselves terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs… A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town.

Now trapped inside a flooded supermarket with an armed maniac and rushing water threatening to entomb them all in a watery grave, the imprisoned band of survivors discover they’re not alone. The tsunami has brought some unwanted visitors from the depths. As the waters rise, they must overcome not only the threat of drowning but another threat, just as deadly and far more bloodthirsty… packs of hungry tiger sharks.

“Bait”, which stars Jesse Spencer, Xavier Samuel, Julian McMahon, Sharni Vinson, Cariba Heine, and Alice Parkinson, should take a bite out of Australian movie-goers this September. Everyone else will have to wait patiently.

    I really hope it’s as awesome as Deep Blue Sea.

    Looks great, and I will watch it. However, I hope they realize that Tiger Sharks look nothing like the sharks in the poster or preview. Those look more like small Great Whites. The teeth and snout are entirely wrong for Tigers.
