Russell Mulcahy is a busy chap, but has yet to really make an impact here on us horror fans. After delivering us the stunning, beautiful and badass Razorback from Australia, he has gone on to direct the disappointing Resident Evil: Extinction. Now the director is heading back to the indie route as he’s not only working on his spin of Grimm (more details), but is also now developing a 3-D flick by the name of Bait. Read on for the skinny.
The boys over at Twitch has the skinny on Bait:
“In a sleepy coastal resort community, shoppers at an underground supermarket find themselves terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs… A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town. Now trapped inside a flooded supermarket with an armed maniac and rushing water threatening to entomb them all in a watery grave, the imprisoned band of survivors discover they’re not alone. The tsunami has brought some unwanted visitors from the depths. As the waters rise they must overcome not only the threat of drowning, but another threat, just as deadly and far more bloodthirsty… Packs of hungry tiger sharks.”
This sitting duck thriller sounds very similar to a few other projects floating around from Chris Kentis’ (Open Water) second deep-sea pic based on a true story Indianapolis to Xavier Gens’ (Frontier(s)) cannibal island thriller Vanikoro. Click either title for more info.
