Shark Night

The director of Snakes on a Plane shifts his attention to sharks in the water in this man-eating fright fest.

A group of friends plan to "rock out" at a lake house in the Louisiana Gulf for the weekend. Fun with drinking, toplessness, and jet boats quickly turns into a nightmare as they are subjected to the full blown killer instincts of fresh-water sharks.

His toothless attack sequences unfold under cover of dark water; the film is the equivalent of a skin flick in which all the sex scenes are tastefully obscured by blankets and sheets.

The result is a movie that isn’t crummy, exactly, just blah.

Apart from an appropriately shark-like keep-moving-or-die filmmaking ethos, the shocks are weak...

Dumb Louisiana-set horror flick feels generic despite the odd pairing of shark menace and redneck killers.

Shark Night 3D is a ho-hum series of kills and lulls so predictable that it doesn't even look like much fun for the sharks.

It also lacks the tension of a good horror film, or the self-aware humor of a fun bad one.
