A long lost cult-classic makes its anamorphic widescreen DVD debut from Synapse Films. An airplane goes down in the ocean during a storm and a few survivors find refuge on a small tour boat. Swept out to sea, these people slowly starve to death in the hot sun with barely any food or clean water. With no place to turn, the boat survivors resort to cannibalism to stay alive...that is ..until the rescue planes come to pick them up and the man eating sharks decide its time to eat as well. This gory exploitation film was directed by Rene Cardona, Jr. (Guyana:Cult of The Damned) and is prsented in a new anamorphic widescreen tranfer from the original vault materials.

As the movie begins we see a bunch of slack-jawed tourist type schmucks on glass bottom boat tour in the Caribbean. Soon after we're on a populated island as the local authorities get word that a cyclone is approaching, and the order is issued to batten down the hatches. Now we're on a mid-sized aircraft and one of the passengers relates how he wants to be an oceanographer...I think he's about to get a crash course, if you know what I mean. Soon enough the weather begins to sour and three main events occur...a fishing boat sinks (a handful of fishermen make it onto a lifeboat), the plane crash lands into the ocean (this is illustrated by someone spraying the passengers in the plane with a fire hose), and the glass bottom boat becomes stranded in open water.Read more ›

For me the funniest part was when someone is fishing, standing on the stern of the boat and leaning forward... Naturally a shark grabs the bait and yanks him into the water and all the other sharks go yum, yum! Lunch!
Oh yeah, and the stupidest bit was when there's an argument and someone throws something down in anger... straight through the glass of the glass-bottomed boat, which of course then sinks. Didn't the director research it and discover that the glass is a) specially toughened, and b) set into a well so that if it breaks, the boat stays afloat?
By this point you're so cheesed off at the inanity of the whole thing that the final scene, when the rescuers are snatching survivors (some of the lucky ones) away from the teeth of the sharks, isn't a thrill, it's a laugh.
Great worst movie.
