Frozen for thousands of years, freed by an earthquake, and really, really hungry. In 1999, a team of animal biologists investigating a rash of wildlife killings disappeared in the lonely woods near a small town. Years later, a local resident claims to have killed a prehistoric carnivorous creature living in the snow. Now, someone - or something - is making lunch of the locals. As curiosity-seekers and cryptozoologists descend on the small town, drawn by the legend of the Snow Shark, Mike - sole survivor of an earlier attack - leads an armed and dangerous posse into a deadly battle.


Get ready for Snow Shark

Actor, Writer, and Director Sam Qualiana bring's his 2004 short film full circle into a full-length blood soaked shark tale to life. Shot on a shoestring budget of $7,000 and a lot of help from his friends they set out into the cold to shoot their story. Shot in 21 days mainly on weekends with their  digital camera in hand with what seems to be a group of buddies. 

It's not horror without boobs and beer!
Being that this was a group of friends and a micro budget, this will lead to the weakest part of the movie, the character's. They are well written but you can tell the acting is forced at times and very clunky. The location is perfect for the settings taking place in the snow-filled parts of Buffalo. The director paints a beautiful landscape that does draw you in but at times can take you right back out.

Possibly the only cute girl in the movie.
 Nothing crazy when it comes down to the costumes in the movie, in fact, most of the actors brought their own wardrobe. When it comes to sound effects and the soundtrack the movie can lack at times. The soundtrack was overpowering once in a while and it gets in the way for the story. The only track I did like was the one from the end credits. 

Say Ahh!
As for the Shark, I will give Qualiana some credit here. You never really see the shark and when you do he blends in CGI with puppets along with fast pace cuts during editing. It all blends well together and sure at times leaves you giggling at its silliness. Fake blood flow's freely at times and it never gets old it is very ambitious of the young director. 

Damn it its cold out here!
Sure it's silly that the movie is about a Shark that gets around in the snow but hell why not? The movie is not going to be for everybody the poor acting holds this movie back but should not slow you down from watching. Once you relax into the story it moves along nice and keeps you entertained. I'm not going to lie I did not hate this at all. It is not for everyone, likes those big budget movies. But for the horror kid in you this has it all tons of blood, plenty of kills, a monster concept that is not so bad. and boob's even if half the budget was spent on the local strippers to do the job. (I'm guessing too that fact, they were cute but not cute)


This movie still retails for 15 bucks at the big box stores I would pay that kind of money for it, you can catch it on Popcorn Flix for free. If you are looking for something different to watch this Creepmas give this silly little flick a shot!

  3. LOL! Man, what will they think of next? I remember seeing this somewhere in stores, just not worth the money to me. I did buy a $5 Creature Feature collection with 12 movies, including the original Snow Beast. Man, what a snooze fest! Nothing but skiing and snowmobiling and the occasional Snow Beast attack. This at least sounds a bit more fun.
