About the show:


Kevin and Matt Geek Out about SHARK MOVIES! is an obsessive look at dozens of classic (and some not-so-classic) movies that preceded and followed in the wake of the biggest great white baddie of them all: JAWS. The hosts revisit the all-but-forgotten pre-JAWS films (dating back to the 1930’s). They sink their teeth into JAWSPLOITATION knock-offs, the sanctioned sequels, cable-TV documentaries and more contemporary CGI shark movies. Kevin and Matt also dissect the films that tried to be the next big blockbuster by substituting a Great White with a giant alligator, a man-eating octopus or a killer grizzly bear. Plus they showcase jaw-dropping clips from films that feature gratuitous shark scenes in non-Shark movies. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Shark geek-out without looking back at the hit TV show that literally jumped the shark.



PLUS:
•       The Italian JAWS that Universal banned from the U.S.
•       The inevitable JAWS-inspired mermaid porno: GUMS.
•       Incredible scenes of sharks going against zombies, superheroes, giant apes, Jackie Chan, Burt Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, the Olsen Twins and, of course, the Harlem Globetrotters.

In this special 70-minute presentation the AUDIENCE DECIDES which clips they’ll get to see.  Come to the show and you’ll determine whether they screen a clip of Bo Derek in ORCA THE KILLER WHALE or Karen Black from KILLER FISH.



Note: Immediately following the Brooklyn screening, Kevin & Matt will depart for JAWSFEST in Martha's Vineyard, where they're presenting the show at "Shark After Dark"!
