With The Meg chomping into theaters this weekend, you can’t help but think back on all the other shark movies that come along every few years, each trying to put their own creative spin on what Steven Spielberg already perfected with Jaws. And in the case of Deep Blue Sea, what we got were intelligent sharks that weren’t going to be duped by chum and barrels. But that doesn’t mean the movie surrounding these sharks was any less dumb. But we’ll let the Deep Blue Sea Honest Trailer break that down for you. Read More »
(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)
Matt: If anything can be learned from this week’s “Now Scream This,” I’m left with two lessons. One: humanity needs to accept its universal role and stop tampering with unknown forces. Two: never let Chris pick all his movies first because there will be nothing left. Sci-fi horror has always been less represented on streaming platforms (which we found out already), and sticking with our Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom tie-in, history hath repeated itself. No bother. I’m back at it, fudging rules and making it all work. Or, like, salvaging a raging dumpster fire. Both descriptions fit.
Chris: When will man learn to never tamper in god’s domain? Beats me! Until then, we’ll have to make do with movies focused on science gone terribly wrong. In honor of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Matt and I have scoured the net to bring back these perversions of science – films that follow the Jurassic tradition of scientific hubris gone wild. As a side note: I really wanted to put David Cronenberg’s The Fly on here, but The Fly isn’t streaming. At all. What hellscape is this?

In 2009, we were deprived of a straight-to-DVD Deep Blue Sea with surgically enhanced sharks equipped with machine guns and torpedoes. It was a great loss, no question. Now, a sequel to Renny Harlin‘s 1999 shark attack semi-classic is happening, but it’s not going to theaters or straight to DVD. It’s coming to the SyFy channel.
Below, learn more about the Deep Blue Sea sequel.

Someone at Warner Premiere, the now obsolete company behind Lost Boys: The Tribe and Ace Ventura Jr.: Pet Detective, is responsible for depriving audiences of a Deep Blue Sea sequel. Not just any sequel, but an Aliens-esque sequel involving pirates, Navy Seals, and weaponized sharks. The movie, which Jack Perez (Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus) was hired to write and direct, was initially going to go straight-to-DVD in 2009, but here we are now, still without a sequel to Renny Harlin‘s delightfully self-aware, Thomas Jane-led shark movie.
Below, learn why Deep Blue Sea 2 wasn’t meant to be.

Today, technology allows for some extremely astounding special effects. However, it wasn’t always so easy to produce fantastical elements, sci-fi creatures and plane crashes.
A new supercut has collected some of the worst special effects ever seen on the big screen, and they’re pretty embarrassing to look at. Some of them are bad simply because of when they were created and they just haven’t aged well over time. Meanwhile, others seem to be have been created with little to no budget whatsover.
See some of the worst special effects ever after the jump! Read More »
