Bikini Snow Day is the busiest day of the year at Mammoth Mountain, and the resort is packed with wild co-eds looking for a good time. When an unexpected avalanche rumbles down the mountain, it awakens ancient spirits in the form of massive sharks with a taste for human flesh. As the body count begins to pile up, the local sheriff must form an unlikely alliance with a motley crew of locals and tourists in order to kill off the terrifying creatures before it’s too late.The shark infested feature film will be available on Digital HD and On Demand June 30, 2015 on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vimeo and VUDU, as well as On Demand with AT&T and DirecTV.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the mountains… Wait, what? This campy-sounding thriller should definitely go on the ‘must see’ list for Sharknado fans. Everything about the film announcement screams ‘over the top’. Part of me hopes that the film explains the “prehistoric shark spirits” by stating that the snow covered Mammoth mountains were covered by an ocean prior to the ice age. …The other part hopes that it doesn’t, and just rides the ridiculous wave (pun intended) of shark obsession that Sharknado brought back to the forefront of horror consciousness when it was released in 2013. Either way, I’ll be checking this out when it hits VOD.
