Exclusive Trailer, Pics: “AVALANCHE SHARKS”Movies/TV,News Fangoria Staff
Riding the social media wave generated by last summer’s surprise success SHARKNADO comes AVALANCHE SHARKS (a.k.a. SHARKALANCHE)! Fango just reeled in an exclusive trailer to the upcoming Syfy-style fishy saga, directed by TRANSMORPHERS Scott Wheeler and written by MALIBU SHARK ATTACK’s Keith Shaw. Starring FEAR CLINIC’s Kate Nauta, AVALANCHE SHARKS is reportedly more of a sequel to American World Pictures/Syfy’s SAND SHARKS than a SHARKNADO ripoff. Decide for yourself from the trailer and official synopsis below.
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, prehistoric 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!
