    Shark Exorcist

    ★½

    Almost dying is a real buzz kill.

    I watched Jurassic Shark only a couple of days ago. It's funny how two movies that share most of their fundamentals (low-budget horror with terrible a CGI shark) can be so different.
    While Jurassic Shark is, to say the least, not very good, it is mostly played straight.
    On the other hand Shark Exorcist, after 10/20 minutes, gets off the rails and makes less and less sense as it goes on, culminating in…

    Hooptober Ocho #23 - 1981

    I do have one complaint : the first name "Bob" sounds incredibly silly in Italian.
