THIS SUMMER GET SET FOR SUN, SEA AND SHARK BAIT
NAIL-BITING SHARK ATTACK THRILLER SET FOR UK RELEASE ON 6 JUNE
Altitude announce that tense and terrifying thriller SHARK BAIT is being released on DVD, on altitude.film and other digital platforms from 6th June.
This edge-of-your-seat nerve-shredder, from the producers of 47 METRES DOWN, ATTACK THE BLOCK and BOSS LEVEL, sees a group of spring-breakers being terrorised by a fearsome predator off the coast of Mexico. Director James Nunn (TOWER BLOCK, ELIMINATORS) delivers an adrenaline rush of a film packed with seriously intense set pieces, with a taut, twisting script from Nick Saltrese (who wrote the acclaimed and award-winning prison boxing film A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN). We dare you to watch it with your toes on the floor!
The fantastic cast includes Holly Earl (from the TV series HUMANS), Catherine Hannay (DOCTORS), and Malachi Pullar-Latchman (soon to be seen as D’Artagnan in THE THREE MUSKETEERS), who discover, too late, that their hi-jinks are going to have serious consequences. With an excellently ominous score by Clio award-winning composer Walter Mair (THE HEIST NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT), and stunningly shot by Ben Moulden (ALL MY FRIENDS HATE ME), SHARK BAIT is a slick, highly-effective scare machine. Remember - once you see it, it’s too late…
Fans of recent Altitude releases 47 METRES DOWN: UNCAGED, GREAT WHITE and DEAD WATER need look no further - SHARK BAIT is here to take care of all your deep sea terror needs!
SYNOPSIS: A group of spring-breakers enjoying a weekend in Mexico. After a big night of partying on the beach until dawn, the friends steal a couple of jet skis and take them out to sea, but end up in a horrific head-on collision. The group finds itself stranded miles from land and struggling with a badly injured friend. With no clear way home and predators circling in the choppy waters below, the true horror begins…
SHARK BAIT IS RELEASED ON DVD, ON ALTITUDE.FILM AND OTHER DIGITAL PLATFORMS FROM 6th JUNE.
