The Shitty Shark Show

Welcome to the Shitty Shark Show, the only podcast that I know of that focuses exclusively on shark movies. Your co-hosts are John, Maddie, Keith, and Monster aka. Donovan. Each episode we will do a deep dive on the cinematic misadventures of everyone's favorite apex predator the shark! Sometimes they are mutants, sometimes they have many heads, sometimes in the sand, and other times in the snow. It doesn't matter to us! 



It was John's turn this week and he decided to pick another Tubi flick. This time around it is Shark Bait. Another batch of college kids get stranded, this time on a jet ski, with a shark stalking them. Much mayhem and death occurs... well some anyway. Check us out in a couple of weeks to find out. 





Episode 38: Shark Season (2020) release date 9/22/22

It was Keith's turn to pick a movie so he went for Shark Season. This is the classic models and photographer paddle into the ocean for a photoshoot and get attacked by a shark story. The survival bit sounds sort of like The Shallows so it could be decent.



Episode 37: Jaws 2 (1978) release date 8/25/22

Maddie did us all a favor this time around and picked a movie that we will all dig. Since we have already covered Jaws so why not check out the first sequel. I mean the shark eats a damn helicopter! How great is that?




This time around we check out Apex Predators from Dustin Ferguson and Bull Shark. Well I suppose it was a matter of time before we checked out a Ferguson flick. So keep an eye open for when that show goes live. 




On episode 35 we do another double feature of a couple Mega Shark movies. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus. I'm down for a couple of versus movies that don't involve Bigfoot! 




This time on the Shitty Shark Show is a movie that challenges for the worst one we have watched yet! And yes that means the movie that "shall not be named" has a legit chance of getting bumped off the worst ever "gold" metal platform. That movie... 90210 Shark Attack. Spoilers there aren't any shark attacks and we don't even see the characters on the ocean. Dear God what were they thinking?


Episode 33: Shark Killer (2015) release date 5/19/22

This time on the Shitty Shark Show we watch a movie that gets right to the point and lets you know that some shenanigans are about to happen. That movie is Shark Killer. It is about a guy who... wait for it... kills sharks! We also do our oddest list yet and talk about our favorite gameshows, discuss microphone technology, and generally goof around like always. So tune in or I guess download it and have some fun. 



Episode 32: The Shallows (2016) release date 4/22/22

This time out we cover The Shallows starring the lovely Blake Lively as a surfer who gets stranded within sight of the beach but with a large angry shark between her at safety. We also do a game show and talk about naming seagulls... It was a weird but fun time. So stop in and hear us talk about why Ryan Reynolds is one luck fella!




On the next exciting installment of the Shitty Shark Show we mixed up the format. This time
instead of our normal second segment shenanigans we decided to do our first ever double feature. What movies did we pick? Well Maddie chose to cover the new Alicia Silverstone flick The Requin and John picked Trailer Park Shark. Yeah I know... weird double feature. At least they are both shark flicks.



The title sounded good but this isn't at all what any of us expected. Well John and Maddie had already seen it and it was what they remembered. You are going to want to tune in for this one. It gets interesting. Plus we have another game show and talk about how we are going to switch up the format a bit on the next show. 



This time on the Shitty Shark Show the crew checks out a sequel of sorts to a movie that we have already covered. Yes it is time to see who wins the epic battle... Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf! We are also going to talk about our favorite comedies, John will tell some terrible jokes, and Keith will be Keith. Sounds like a lot of fun no?



The crew decided to celebrate the new year with some drinking and shooting of the shit. Be warned that this one gets a bit sloppy, but we had fun recording it. The booze goes in and the shields come down... Star Trek reference FTW! Wait until you hear what movie Keith wants to remake...


Episode 27: Jaws (1975) release date 12/28/21

It was John's pick and he decided to give the crew an early Christmas present. Instead of shark movies of dubious quality we are covering Jaws! The crew also talks about their favorite Christmas flicks and about our New Years show!



Episode 26: 47 Meters Down (2019) release date 12/16/21

Time to check out another newer movie as we dive into 47 Meters Down: Uncaged. Big budget CGI shark movie... what could go wrong? Actually not a lot. Yeah this might be a spoiler but it was way better than Bigfoot vs, Megalodon. Then not much could be that bad. 




Well it was Keith's turn to pick a movie. He decided to get a little crazy with it and chose Bigfoot vs. Megalodon. I mean it could be good... right? Well Keith liked it anyway. We also talk about our favorite television shows, toss in some shark bites, and we have a milestone on the show. Maddie didn't like a movie!


Episode 24: Swim (2021) release date 11/15/21
                
This episode has Monster picking Swim for us to watch. Yes ladies and gentlemen we are going to watch Joey Lawrence versus sharks! Who knew our favorite aquatic killer movies would have a Blossom connection? Also Maddie has another of her gameshows planned and we will get up to our normal shenanigans. 


Episode 23: Sharkenstein (2016) release date 10/20/21

For this our very special Halloween episode we watched and reviewed Sharkenstein. Please note that none of the cool stuff on the poster actually happens in the movie. We also do some horror movie trivia, talk about our favorite costumes and candy from our childhood, as well as share what spooky movies we like to watch this time of the year. So sit back have some fun and have a very Happy Halloween
                                                                        👻    🦇    🧟


It was Maddie's pick for the next show and she decided it was time to watch Sharks of the Corn. Will we see a shark named Malachai terrorizing Linda Hamilton? Probably not... but this could still be fun. If that isn't cool enough we also have an interview with director Tim Ritter and actress Rebecca Rinehart! 


Episode 21: Dam Sharks! (2016)  release date 9/13/21

It was Keith's turn to pick a movie and he decided we should watch Dam Sharks. Hey it couldn't be worse than Shark in Venice... could it? I mean how bad could the damn movie about these damn sharks building a dam be? 



Episode 20: Great White (2021) release date 8/24/21

We have been covering a lot of older movies or independent flicks here on the show. I suppose it was time to cover a big budget new release, so Great White it is! This movie has been getting a lot of negative buzz so tune in to hear what we think. Plus John picks a fight with the internet and we play a game show!


Episode 19: Sharktopus (2010) release date 8/5/21

Well it was John's turn to pick a shark movie and his love of Roger Corman led him to picking Sharktopus. Hey it is at least it is half shark! Plus we get to see Eric Roberts not totally phoning in his performance for maybe the last time. Toss in some Ralph Garmin and a fun Roger Corman cameo for a good time. 




This time around it was Monster's pick and he decided to do something different and had us watch a documentary called Shark Water Extinction. So I guess there is zero chance of a bootleg Hulk Hogan sighting. But we do get some interesting and rather disturbing visuals of how sharks are harvested. Though some shenanigans are called with a few things in the movie. Check out the episode linked above for more info. 


Episode 17: Deep Blood (1990) release date 6/24/21

It was Maddie's pick this time around and she decided we should watch Deep Blood from 1990. It looks like another fun bit of Italian filmmaking. Sadly no bootleg Hulk Hogan this time around. So check out what we think of this odd movie about a creepy old guy giving some kids a quiver with a bunch of carvings on it that may or may not be important later.


Episode 16: Sand Sharks (2012) release date 5/27/21

Keith is up next and has decided that we need to cover Sand Sharks. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water you can't even make it off the beach! Brooke Hogan is in it so yeah... we are probably in trouble. But that is what you have come to expect from us right? I mean we are the Shitty Shark Show!



Episode 15: Shark Lake (2015) release date 5/13/21

Well this time around it was John's pick. Since the disappointment of not getting the proper time travel Sharknado starring Dolph Lundgren was still fresh in his mind after watching Sharknado 3 it seemed appropriate to pick Shark Lake from 2015. It stars Dolph and promises some sharky goodness. 




It was Monster's turn and he decided to pick from a series I think we all knew was going to pop up sooner or later. Yes we are finally diving into the Sharknado series with Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Ever wanted to see the Hoff do battle with sharks being tossed around in a tornado? Well then my friends this is the movie for you. This ought to be a fun show. 




It was Maddie's pick this time around and she chose to inflict Shark Attack 3: Megalodon on us. This "gem" from 2002 stars John Barrowman whom most of you probably know from either Doctor Who or Arrow. The movie is best known for his improvised line that was supposed to be a joke but stayed in the movie. I'll not ruin that here, so tune in next time and hear our thoughts on this shittiest of shark movies. 



What do we have in store for you this time? What do you get when you have the less famous brother of an acting family searching for hidden treasure? Well it was Keith's turn to pick a movie and he decided to go for 2008's Sharks in Venice, so there is your answer. It stars Stephen Baldwin so you know it has to be good. 




It was John's pick and again he dove into the '70s for The Shark Hunter. This bit of Italian cinema doesn't have bootleg Hulk Hogan in it but does star Franco Nero and was directed by Enzo Castellari. More of a crime drama than shark movie it still does have the requisite munching of limbs by our fine finned friends. It should be a good time. 



Episode 10: Sharkman (2005) release date 2/17/21

Our 10th episode has us checking out something a bit different. First up is I'm fairly certain it doesn't take place in the water. Second it has a shark man in it, so part man part shark. Of course I'm talking about the Sci-Fi channel jam Sharkman! This one stars Jeffrey Combs and William Forsythe so you know it has to be good!



Episode 9: Cruel Jaws (1995) release date 2/5/21

Episode 9 has us finally getting around to some proper Italian Jawsploitation. Yes we are going to check out Cruel Jaws aka. Jaws 5. This gem, directed by Bruno Mattei, has to be seen to be believed. But is it good? You will just have to listen to the show to find out what we think. Head on over to our Facebook page linked below to ask us any questions.



Episode 8: The Reef (2010) release date 1/21/21

Episode 8 has us spending the first show of 2021 looking at the newer shark flick, The Reef. Okay it isn't that new being 11 years old, but I've never seen it so it is new to me. Plus it is Australian and they seem to have a magic formula for making bad ass genre movies. So tune in and see what the crew has to say about The Reef on the next episode of the Shitty Shark Show. 


Episode 7: Jaws 3D (1983) release date 12/29/20

Episode 7 has us taking a look at the classic shark movie that adds an entirely new dimension to the shark subgenre. Yes I'm talking about Jaws III in 3D! See what I did there with the new dimension? Heh I made a funny... This may be the greatest throwdown between a great white shark and Louis Gosset Jr. So tune in and hear our thoughts on this classic. 



Episode 6: Santa Jaws (2018) release date 12/10/20

On episode 6 we take a break from our normal mayhem to review a Christmas movie... with a Goddamn shark! Yeah we are going to cover Santa Jaws on this most festive time of the year. So crush up the Christmas cookies and bust out the Egg Nog because we are about to chum these festive waters!



Episode 5: Bait (2012) release date 12/4/20

On this 5th installment of the show we check out Bait aka. Jaws in a grocery store! I know that sounds cheesy but this turned out to be a really great movie. As always we also toss in some Shark Bites like trivia and funny shark stories. Heck we even spitball the plot to our own epic... Ghost Gator Shark! 



Episode 4: Bad CGI Sharks (2019) release date 11/16/20

This time the crew checks out a movie that is likely to describe a lot of flicks that we have watched and will watch in the future for this show. Yeah we are taking a look at Bad CGI Sharks. Though this isn't at all the kind of movie that most fans would expect with that title. We can't wait to talk about it on the show. As an added bonus Maddie conducted an excellent interview with the guys responsible for the movie Jason and Matthew Ellsworth and Matteo Molinari. 

Episode 3: Ghost Shark (2013) release date 10/29/20

Since it is that spooky time of year the Shitty Shark Show crew decided to check out this haunting feature... get it? Ghost Shark tells the tale of some rednecks who blow up the wrong shark or at least try to blow it up. Since the shark is able to swim to a nearby magical cave that lets its ghost come back to mess with things. Yeah it gets complicated. 




This time around the Shitty Shark Show crew travels to a magical time of wood paneled bars and live swimming shows. Yes it is the '70s and we are checking out Mako Jaws of Death. This bit of regional drive-in fun stars Richard Jaeckel and was directed by William Grefe. So button up your bell bottoms and sit back for some old school shark action! As always we hit you up with some shark trivia and have fun. 


Episode 1: Post Apocalyptic Commando Shark (2018)  release date 9/28/20

In this first episode the Shitty Shark crew checks out this independent movie from director Sam Qualiana. Ever wonder what would happen if there was a nuclear war and afterwards the Soviet Union invaded the United States with genetically mutated shark soldiers? Well then I have the movie for you. If that wasn't enough for you Monster also sat down with Qualiana for an interview. Toss in some shark trivia and small talk for what I hope you think is a fun time.
