SUPER SHARK is another entry in the never-ending series of mutant killers, so you know you can't set your expectations high.
This particular shark can walk around on the beach and even fly! It is released when drilling at an oil rig causes an earthquake. Of course, a seductive marine biologist shows up to investigate while the shark eats up most of the cast. Sarah Lieving (MEGASHARK VS CROCOSAURUS) plays the biologist; John Schneider from TV's Hazzard county is the shady oil company chief; Jerry Lacy (Rev. Trask in the original DARK SHADOWS) has a small role as Schneider's boss; and B-movie action hero Tim Abell plays the renegade boat captain who helps Lieving. Jimmie Walker shows up as a deejay at the local club who hosts (what else?) a bikini contest.
The shark effects are appropriately cheesy and notorious director Fred Olen Ray obviously didn't take the movie seriously either.
It's all Saturday matinee fluff but worth a few laughs.
