It remains to be seen whether or not Sky Sharks will inspire the next generation of German filmmakers to chase their wildest movie dreams. For now, it just needs to prove it’s good enough to sit alongside classics like Manos: The Hands of Fate and Sharknado in the pantheon of unforgettable B-movies.
The movie’s trailer suggests it is off to a good start — it delivers on the promise of zombies and sharks in the opening scene. But surely the concept behind Sky Sharks has to be more complex than it sounds. According to the movie’s official description, the film kicks of with a group of geologists who uncover a secret Nazi lab in the Antarctic. As they’re poking around, the geologists inadvertently release the Nazis’ secret weapon: flying zombie sharks, which are ridden by genetically mutated zombies, of course.
As the zombies and sharks wreak havoc on the world, a team known as the Dead Flesh Four is called into action. And, just in case you were wondering, the so-called Dead Flesh Four are a military task force made from the reassembled body parts of fallen Vietnam soldiers. Did we mention this movie is weird? Because this movie is weird.
If Sky Sharks just shot to the top of your must-see list, you can purchase the DVD or Blu-Ray from Amazon and other retailers beginning February 2.
