2-HEADED SHARK ATTACK - 1 Slime
Not Rated
Copyright 2012 The Asylum
Reviewed by Andrew Borntreger on 4 January 2013

Capsule Review:    

The title catches your attention and gives away the movie's premise at the same time, doesn't it? You are thinking that there is going to be a shark with two heads, and that it will probably eat some people. Congratulations, you get a cookie. You should eat it while watching something besides the SyFy channel, because it is not a good idea to subject both your head and your stomach to junk food at the same time.

Incredibly, the biggest challenge in watching this film is not the monster. Yes, a huge two-headed shark is a lulu of a critter, but the glaring dilemma with this movie is the script and the acting. Both are horrible, so much so that you will be happy to hear that almost everyone gets eaten by the two-headed shark. Back to that shark: the only evolutionary advantage that I can think of for a two-headed shark to evolve is being able to eat two victims at the same time. So, this is the one time that the buddy system will make someone a more attractive target for a predator (and ruin the Doublemint gum franchise). Which is exactly what happens when the movie opens; the shark swallows a pair waterskiing hunnies before eating the three men who were driving the boat.

Yes, that means that each head gets one-and-a-half men.

Cut to a boat filled with college students on a maritime trip that looks more like a bikini and booze cruise than anything remotely academic. Among the crew is Carmen Electra, though her only real reason for being in the film is a scene with her sunbathing on the deck. After the boat is damaged, the professor (Charlie O'Connell) and students go ashore to a small atoll while the crew repair the boat. That is when the movie really started to bug me, because I hate all of the students and want them to get eaten as quickly as possible. The two worst offenders are a muscle-minded goon named Cole and none other than Brooke Hogan. The Hulkster's daughter is supposed to be the main female protagonist, but there are two problems with that:

1. She is a snippy shrew.
2. I do not find her attractive.

A few people have questioned me about point #2. Look, imagine Brooke with handlebar moustache and a bandana on her head. She looks just like her father, doesn't she? Yeah... Even without the threat of daddy's twenty-four inch pythons, there is no way I would touch that. No way, brother!

While the young adults are exploring the atoll, and sometimes each other, the shark takes every opportunity to eat them. The idiot humans finally notice that their numbers are decreasing, usually by twos and threes, but it's not until Brooke's character and Cole are racing a pair of boats that the students realize there is a giant, two-headed, swimming, people-eating shark in the water. You are thinking "They should just stay out of the water." and that's a good idea, except that the atoll is mysteriously shrinking a la Attack of the Crab Monsters.

There is also the problem that the water around the atoll is over sixty fathoms deep just thirty feet from the shore, meaning that the atoll sinking spells deep doo-doo for the remaining humans. O'Connell and Electra meet their end in a scene reminiscent of Téa Leoni hugging her dad at the end of "Deep Impact." Although here the giant wave is being surfed by a monster two-headed shark that gobbles up the pair as they embrace. It is up to Brooke and two other surviving students to save themselves by changing the title to no-headed shark attack, and they do, and it's a happy ending. Well, except for everyone who has had their Brooke Hogan fantasy ruined.


Things I Learned From This Movie:  

Green Dot Making a gaffe with a gaff is not worth a laugh when your propeller is involved.
Green Dot Sharks eat because they are annoyed.
Green Dot A forty foot-long shark can hide in four feet of water.
Green Dot Sharks are not afraid of a crucifix.
Green Dot Black women do not believe in pronouns.
Green Dot Sharks are attracted to cell phones.
Green Dot The average college student believes that a shirt soaked with seawater can be set on fire with a lighter.

Stuff To Watch For:  

Green Dot 6 mins - They even have complementary bikinis. BFFs?
Green Dot 17 mins - She just administered the benediction to the audience with a welding torch. This does not look good for us.
Green Dot 28 mins - RANDOM GRATUITOUS BREAST SHOT!
Green Dot 57 mins - She must be Catholic.
Green Dot 58 mins - No, your father is a wrestler.
Green Dot 80 mins - Is the top of that fuel drum made of cardboard?

Quotes:  

Student: "No, we can't do that. All right, it's got twice the electroreception than a regular shark. It's like it can sense every electro-magnetic field in the water!"

Cole: "Mayday! Please, anybody there? I'm sinking! There's a two-headed shark attacking me!"

One of the most accurate film titles ever written!  The plot does indeed involve a 2-headed shark that attacks, and what it attacks is a group of college kids filled with so many annoying characters that I wished it was a 12-headed shark, just so the kids would disappear faster than they did.

That would be six times as fast, in case anyone wants to do the math.



Well. no matter what the math and how it comes out, I'm sure that the movies will never run out of stupid, brain-dead teenagers and 20-somethings who just beg to be eaten by a monster or wasted by some masked killer. 

So regardless of how silly the monsters get, the food will always be there for them because there's no end to dumb kids in movies, lol  BounceGiggle

I thought this one was a hoot. It had plenty of pretty girls, lotsa gore, and Carmen Electra is aging quite gracefully. No complaints!

The idea of multi headed creatures always amuses me.
I blame it on the Three headed knight.
"E' buggered off!'
"So e' as."
"E starkered."

This movie is most notable for the way people always stand or swim next to each other, so the shark can eat two people at a time. Either that, or the heads fight over a single morsel, tearing the victim in two.

And I would argue that this shark has not "evolved" two heads: it's just a conjoined twin.

This is par for the course for Syfy/Asylum movies.

They do mention it being some sort of mutation or freak. A conjoined twin shark makes the most sense.

Except for when the shark bites into one of her falsies and winds up dying from silicon poisoning, lol

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
