This trailer has been floating around for a little while now, but I thought I'd post it in case you've missed it. SAND SHARKS comes from Mark Atkins and stars Brooke Hogan (as in the daughter of Hulk Hogan), let's just hope she can act better than her father . The plot makes it sound like some kind of Jaws/Tremors/Blood Beach/Piranha hybrid and it actually seems like it could turn out to be a decent movie, until you watch the trailer and see the CGI. I'm not just saying this because I really dislike CGI in general, but after you watch the trailer you'll know what I mean. It's bad, really bad. And before the synopsis I'll give you a little 'possible spoiler alert' because it's quite long and may give away a few things you'd rather find out for yourself.
(And what's up with the shameless Jaws rip-off poster??)

Synopsis: “An underwater earthquake cracks open a crater deep beneath the ocean’s surface unleashing a prehistoric predator.  On the sleepy island of White Sands, local teens drink and party beside a beach bonfire.  One of them wanders off after a pretty girl and disappears, leaving only a severed hand behind.  It appears it’s been bitten and ripped off by a vicious animal.  This looks like a shark bite, but it’s found well above the high tide line, it can’t be a shark… Or can it?  Jimmy Green (Corin Nemec), prodigal party boy and son of the mayor, returns home to White Sands with a scheme to breathe some life into the dying economy (and clear his debt to a mobster) by throwing a huge spring break party: The Sandman Festival.  Jimmy runs into his ex, and now Deputy Sherriff, Brenda Young (Vanessa Lee Evigan).  She and her brother, the Sheriff, want to close the island beaches in fear of further shark attacks, which would ruin Jimmy’s plans.  Brenda calls in an expert, shark scientist Dr. Sandy Powers (Brooke Hogan), as the attacks continue. Dr. Powers says it appears to be a sand shark, a beast which moves through the sand as if it was water.  A shark is electrocuted by accident, but it’s soon discovered that this shark, though gigantic, was only a baby!  The festival continues and thousands of college kids arrive just as dozens of sand sharks make their presence known, attracted by the vibrations of the crowd and the PA system.  The most menacing beasts to ever rule the waters, now rule the sand; mercilessly feeding on anything that crosses their path.   It’s a giant feeding frenzy and it’s up to Brenda, Sandy, the Sherriff, and Jimmy to stop the carnage.”
