Filmmakers around the world, maybe we should slow down with sharks, no? Yes, they are scary and powerful creatures, and many many men, women, and children have lost their lifes between their uncountable teeth. But the exploitation that sharks have been submitted into in horror movies is perhaps a little bit too much. Sharks with many heads, sharks in the snow, in space, flying, shooting lasers and rockets… and, now, sharks in cornfields. Hello, Sharks of the Corn (2021).
Strange things are happening in Druid Hills, Kentucky, known mainly for its voluminous corn output. Victims of monsters in cornfields begin cropping up, and witnesses are saying there are “large Great White sharks swimming in the corn stalks!” Meanwhile, serial killer Teddy Bo Lucas is arrested for killing dozens of people using shark jaws and teeth as weapons. Chief Vera Scheider is caught in the middle, trying to figure out if her missing twin sister Lorna might be one of them. When Teddy agrees to take her to one of his prime burial sites in a cornfield, an insane chain of events unfold that no one is prepared for, pitting the Druid Hills townsfolk against an outrageous shark worshipping cult that is planning to take over the world, one cornfield at a time! And their main protectors are jaw-snapping Sharks of the Corn!
This crazy movie is the new work of writer and director Tim Ritter, who has also been behind low-budget titles like Day of the Reaper (1984), Twisted Illusions (1985), Truth or Dare?: A Critical Madness (1986), Killing Spree (1987), and segments in the horror anthologies Hi-8 (Horror Independent 8) (2013), Trashsploitation (2018), Hi-Death (2018), Earth Girls Are Sleazy (2019), and Zombarella’s House of Whorrors (2019).
Shannon Stockin, Ford Windstar, Steve Guynn, Casey Miracle, Al Nicolosi, Thomas Kindler, Rebecca Rinehart, and Billy W. Blackwell form the main cast.
The movie is out in a very limited edition of 200 Blu-rays and 25 VHS. Here you can watch the official trailer for Sharks of the Corn (2021).
