TUNNICLIFFE'S BIG SHARK UNLEASHED

Creature Corner reports:

'Isn?t it rather amazing that there have been so many low budget movies about Megalodon sharks since Steve Alten wrote Meg and yet his is the one Megalodon shark movie that has yet to get made? The latest hits store shelves on July 13th and is simply titled Megalodon. The strangest thing about this one is that unlike almost all the previous direct-to-video Megalodon shark movies neither Nu Image nor UFO Films produced it. Shocking, I know.

Written and directed by veteran FX guy Gary Tunnicliffe, Megalodon has actually been sitting on the shelf since 2001. Tunnicliffe apparently had the film taken away from him by the producers who removed the gore in order to make it a PG-13 ?adventure? movie. In fact, Tunnicliffe even complained in an issue of Fangoria last year that he had yet to be paid for directing the film. Perhaps that explains why IMDB lists a Pat Corbitt as the movie?s director.

So controversy aside, here?s the plot of Megalodon:

?Oil...the quest for it is unrelenting. The search for new reserves of the 'black gold' never-ending and leading the search Nexecon Petroleum and its flagship, the largest drilling and refining platform ever constructed, 'Colossus' located in the freezing North Atlantic waters off the coast of Greenland. 'Colossus' will drill deeper than any rig ever has, a fact that gratifies Nexecon CEO, Peter Brazier, but that has geologists the world over up in arms, concerned that delicate ocean floor fault lines could be disturbed with catastrophic effects. Skeptical news reporter Christen Giddings and her cameraman Jake Thompson are invited by Brazier to document the safety of 'Colossus.'

The powerful drill tears through the seabed, striking a rich oil deposit. As the drill penetrates further, it ruptures a fissure that reveals a second 'mirror' ocean that has existed beneath ours for millions of years, an ocean teeming with prehistoric life. As the choking oil poisons the water, the frenzied creatures swarm for the surface. Colossus buckles under the onslaught. Brazier, Christen, and a team of engineers descend in Colossus' glass elevator to assess the damage and come face to face with the most powerful oceanic predator that ever lived, Carcharodon Megalodon - the giant ancestor of the Great White Shark.

This eleven-ton killing machine quickly stakes its territory in the waters surrounding Colossus with disastrous and horrific consequences, destroying and devouring anything in its path. Now fate will pull them together as they wager their changes of survival against the most fearsome creature that ever dominated the ocean, and pit the technology and machinery of man against beast. Megalodon...sixty feet of prehistoric terror.?

?Sixty feet of prehistoric terror?, huh? Wait a minute, that?s the exact same tagline the movie Beneath Loch Ness used! Now that I think about it, different variations of that very tagline has been used before by quite a few movies in recent years. Oh well, at least the box art isn?t comprised of a sinister eyeball like so many creature features of late.

For those still curious, the trailer for Megalodon is online now. Actually, it has been online for a couple of years. Heck, had this movie come out on time it would have been one of the first Megalodon shark movies and not bringing up the rear. You can check out the trailer here. The rest of you will have to wait until July 13th to experience the latest in Megalodon shark terr?I mean adventure.'
