Editorial Reviews

College students Miki and Mai arrive on a private beach on a tropical island. They can’t find the hotel where they booked their reservations, and have gotten hopelessly lost, until a handsome young man shows up, offering to take them to his lodge. But something is not right about the place. The owner’s fingernails are tainted with blood and Miki feels something sinister lurking nearby.

2.0 out of 5 stars Giant Shark? Look quick. October 18, 2010
Verified Purchase
I wasn't expecting much from this movie and that's what I got. Oh, there are 5 very attractive Japanese models in bikinis frolicking on a beach in Okinawa with dialog and a plot that makes Jackass look like Proust. If you wait long enough there are about 7 total seconds of low-level CGI giant shark scenes (yes, that is plural - scenes). Apparently the backwoods island boys are sacrificing attractive tourists to their shark-god while leaving videotapes lying around showing previous victims displaying an awesome amount of bimbo-age. As a trained zoologist, I can confirm that all the women are certainly mammals, boy are they. Sad, just sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nonami Takizawa November 7, 2012
By Josh
Fans of JP Idol Nonami are the only ones who should purchase this film. You can tell at a glance it's a B- flick. This is the type of dvd you buy and stick on a shelf without watching... it's a collectible. ^^

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TIME! November 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
Bikini-clad girls on vacation at a secluded beach in Okinawa are encouraged by the motel owner to use video cameras he provides to record memories of their trips. What he really wants is a record of their being seduced by a friend of his who eventually stabs them and feeds them to a giant shark. At least, I think that's the plot, if you could call it a plot. Most of the movie is repeated footage of the babes cavorting in the water. The shark, which looks like the computer generated animation it is, doesn't appear until the very end, and even then only has less than a minute of screen time. Just as well, it's so ridiculously big and behaves in a way that might have been comical if the previous 64 minutes hadn't left me too irritated to laugh. This miserable waste of time has an incomprehensible script and plenty of bad cinematography (and calling it cinematography is being generous). Originally titled "Jaws in Japan" until Universal made them change it. Can't blame them for wanting no connection between this dreck and their franchise. This makes JAWS: THE REVENGE look like an Oscar contender. Painful and pointless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst shark movie ever!!! September 19, 2012
By T-Man
Not even worth my time to talk about. Please, I beg of you, do not waste your time or money. Everyone involved in this piece of crap should be ashamed. Avoid this like you would poison. Not even worth half a star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst "horror" film I've seen in years. December 7, 2010
This is by far the most pointless and tedious "horror" film I've seen in a very, very long time. It's barely 70 minutes long, and much of it consists of two girls on vacation, trying on their bathing suits, playing with a video camera, plugging in the video camera to the TV, taking a shower, brushing their hair, taking a shower again, meeting a couple of guys, going swimming. This goes on forever. After a while, one of the girls finds some old video tape and seems to get obsessed by it somehow, so we get lots of rewind, fast forward, etc, of more pointless footage. Almost 40 minutes into the movie it seems like we finally get a shark, but it turns out to be false alarm; it was just a dream. So we're back to more of the same again, the girls walking around on the beach, resting in their hotel room, and watching the video tapes. Only in the last 15 minutes or so do we get some sort of plot development, but by then most viewers will probably have fallen asleep, so who cares? And yes, in the last 5 minutes of the film, we finally get a glimpse of a shark, for a few seconds.

I have a great respect for low budget filmmaking, but "Psycho Shark" is so bad it's pathetic. The filmmakers doesn't even seem to have tried to make a watchable movie. "Psycho Shark" has no qualities and absolutely no entertainment value; it's not "so bad it's good", just boring. The distributor should be ashamed for trying to pass this off as a bona fide shark movie.
