You know these horrendous slapstick shark comedies that bank on Jaws and piggyback on Shark Week? Well, this one makes fun of them. Doesn’t matter how many times you watch this film, and how stoned you are, it will never make sense. On the other hand, if you’re a film buff, a film student, a 3D animator, or a filmmaker, some jokes will hit close to home.
ABC, RGB, XYZ, you get it all! Ultimately, all the CGI shark movies you’ve seen in the past decade were inexpensive. This is Bad CGI Sharks’ one-trick pony, and, somehow, it never gets old, as long as you’re in the loop. The sharks, here, fly, and don’t look half as shitty as the title suggests. This film is no masterpiece, but it’s one of the funniest slapstick comedies I’ve seen.
Take it from a 3D animator and texturer, this isn’t crap. The creators and compositors know exactly what they’re doing. You wouldn’t be laughing so hard if they didn’t. Then again, this is the film’s mission. Bad CGI Shark isn’t perfect, but it’s hilarious. It breaks the fourth wall constantly, and the dialogue will make you piss your pants. So, what are you waiting for? Wanna piss your pants?
The Almanac of Terror 2019: 89 Years of Horror Movie Statistics

The following recommendation lists are based on 2000 horror movie reviews. They were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
