Vacationing college students fight a shiver of sharks after traveling to an island getaway and being surrounded by the ferocious man-eaters in this sun-soaked shocker from director David R. Ellis (Final Destination 2, Snakes on a Plane). The moment Sara (Sara Paxton) and her friends arrive at her parent's Louisiana lake house, the party is in full gear. Everyone is swimming in the salt-water lake and having a blast until Malik (Sinqua Walls) loses his arm in what initially appears to be a tragic wake-boarding mishap. Determined to get him to the nearest hospital as quickly as possible, Malik's friends fire up the speedboat and hit the water full throttle. It isn't until they're far from shore that the reality of the situation finally dawns on them -- the lake is teeming with hungry sharks, and a tiny speedboat isn't about to stop them from getting their next meal. Suddenly, a severed arm is the least of their worries. As the feeding frenzy begins, Sara and her pals realize that their only hope for survival is to swim for their lives and reach the beach without becoming fish food.

I'm a huge horror movie fan and because of this, it takes a lot to actually scare me. Shark Night was exactly what I thought it would be, totally predictable. Even though I knew what was going to happen before it happened, it wasn't a bad movie. I wouldn't say it's a must-see but I did enjoy it. I like to watch just about anything that has to do with sharks, namely Shark Week. So when I saw previews for Shark Night, I knew that I would end up watching it as soon as I was able to. The acting was good and it has a decent storyline. I would recommend seeing it if you are a shark fan but my advice is to rent it, not buy it. Disclosure: I received a copy of this movie for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

I work at a library (yes, it’s awesome), and am in the cataloging department. This little gem may have slipped by getting added to our library’s DVD section if I hadn’t pulled it off the donation cart. How someone could give up this gem, I’m not sure, but I’m glad they did because I, and numerous library patrons, will now be able to enjoy it. Nerds, Jocks and Hot Girls all get along together, which is nice to see. Then you have the typical redneck, which of course you will find on the way to your giant lake house that has no neighbors close by. Once we get to the house, that’s when the mangling and dismembering begins. What they think of as a freak thing, (the shark must have came through the levy after hurricane season), quickly turns into sharks everywhere. The sheriff (who plays Harvey on Gotham… love that crazy show), adds some comic relief as the bumbling country bumpkin. Very little nudity, and no sex, just lots and lots of blood. The final reason as to why this is happening makes sense in a twisted way. And honestly I’m surprised something like this hasn’t happened in real life… or maybe it has. So next time you’re near a saltwater lake, you might want to let your friends go for a swim while you stay on the beach.
