Sharks Continue to be the Movie Villains

from the June, 2017 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

When it comes to the unmitigated terror of the ill-informed public movie-going audience, all the aliens and monsters of the universe pale into insignificance when compared to the scariness of a circling shark. This summer's offering in movie theaters will be director Johannes Roberts' 47 Meters Down.

The script pits its main characters against bloodthirsty sharks when a cage dive in Mexico goes very wrong. Two sisters find themselves trapped in a shark cage at 153 feet (47m) deep with limited air supplies, and sharks circling. One is an experienced diver while the other is not -- giving plenty of scope for freaking out. Actress Mandy Moore says that growing up in Florida and visiting the beach, she was terrified of going into the water for as long as she could remember.

Well, this new movie may scare your non-diving neighbors, and it's sure to give you added credibility when you show them those shark-feed videos you made or appeared in -- but you might also consider 47 Meters Down to be unadulterated trash!
