| A hidden gem? Not at all
I am someone who can really sit and watch bad movies. A lot of really bad movies have been some of my favourites each year, finding hiding gems in the horror genre. This is, unfortunately, not one of those hidden gems.

Ghost Shark is all about a great white shark that is killed by a red neck fisherman, who then comes back as a ghost to reek revenge on a small community that hasn't had so much as a shark sighting in 20 years. With the ability to appear in any water source – swimming pools, puddles, anything that can support its full ghostly spectre form – no one is safe from this new hell. A group of teenagers must convince the local police force that the perpetrator of these killings is a great white shark, returned from the dead, but a secret from the town's past may be the only way to do this.

This is just really cringey, really bad, and honestly one of the worst movies I have ever watched in the shark attack sub-genre. The acting is terrible, the accents of the red necks honestly just made me cringe away from the screen, and the CGI was the worst I have ever seen for a movie, television movie or otherwise. I could not wait for this to be over with, and honestly turned it off twice before forcing myself to sit and watch it all the way through. I wasted an hour and a half of my life with this movie.

There are plenty of decent shark movies you could watch, including Bait (2012), The Shallows (2016) and Shark Night 3D (2011). I would seriously recommend one of those over this; I'd even recommend Sharknado. My two star rating is generous, and that's only for the well done camera work and editing.

Seriously, miss this one.
