Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, along come weaponized sharks that have escaped from a secret military lab, genetically engineered and programmed to hunt any human within range. There goes the vacation!
In Raiders of the Lost Shark, two wildlife conservation officers (or were they security guards? It was hard to tell) violate workplace protocol by bringing over their attractive girlfriends for some on-the-job hanky-panky. They decide to go for a swim and then…
No spoilers there, but given the title. You pretty much know what you’re in for. And you better believe that includes lots of carnage!
Meanwhile, at a nearby college, one Professor Reynolds, an oceanographer whose sister was involved in a terrible undersea mishap years earlier, tells her students that 20-million-year old giant megalodons could still be extant.
This is the stuff of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, and a much-maligned documentary in scare quotes, which delved into whether there were 50-tonne pelagic exemplars still roaming the high seas.
But in Raiders of the Lost Shark, they do one better: the shark is a fresh-water dweller. And it can fly!
With lines like “A pair of townies from down at the tavern are missing!” and “my horoscope was right, you’re no good for me,” Raiders has tongue firmly in cheek.
It’s campy, it’s low budget, there are babes a plenty, ineffectual authority figures and a salty sea captain.

Glad to have you on board! 🙂
I’d say this movie is awful but it’s not a movie at all, more like an awful video project by high school students made in a few hours. Total garbage and not fun bad or funny bad just sad bad as I saw another reviewer so perfectly put it.
Avoid this awful video at all costs, it will waste 60 minutes of your life but feels more like 4 and a half hours.
