Hey, remember that scene in Lucio Fulci’s Zombi 2 where a zombie fights a shark? Of course you do. Now imagine that shark and zombie were friends and had a whole movie to themselves; then you’ve basically got the gist of Wolf Matzl’s Sky Sharks.
Deep in the ice of the Antarctic, a team of geologists uncover an old Nazi laboratory, still intact, where dark experiments had occurred. Unwittingly the geologists unleash upon the world a top-secret experiment the Germans had been working on – modified sharks that are able to fly, whose riders are genetically mutated, undead super-humans. The only thing that can stop them, and possibly save the world, is a military task force called the “Dead Flesh Four“ – assembled from reanimated U.S. soldiers who fell in Vietnam.
You’re probably thinking, “of course Nazis are involved.” You’re also probably thinking, “how can I help ensure this film happens?” Easy, just hop on over to Sky Shark’s Kickstarter page. The project has managed to raise $54,567, and with just about a week left before its closure, there’s still plenty of time (by crowdfunding standards) to bring it up to the $83,692 goal, and “help put Germany back on the horror-making map.”
If Matzl’s Nazi-zombie-shark-air-combat vision becomes a reality, expect to see Sky Sharks on the big screen around 2017.
