Shark versus Zombie


It’s Shark Week again and idiots thinking a whole week of shark shows on the Discovery Channel is intelligent are enjoying lazy times in front of the boob tube. I am one of those idiots – I always end up watching at least one or two shark shows during Shark Week. While watching a show called Sharkman, where some moron tries to hypnotize a Great White I couldn’t help thinking about the infamous Shark versus Zombie scene from Lucio Fulci’s Zombi 2.

This scene features somebody fucking with a shark for entertainment value; I’m also convinced the shark was drugged. In an era where Italian film gave the world Cannibal Holocaust and Jungle Holocaust it shouldn’t surprise anybody that a film team drugged a shark and messed with it for a 90 second scene. Its animal exploitation but I still can’t help but enjoy it.
