Promo Art and Synopsis for Russell Mulcahy’s ‘Bait 3D’

While Aussie director Russell Mulcahy disappointed me with Resident Evil: Extinction, I’m still clinging on to the fact that the man brought us not only Highlander, but also the beautiful horror film Razorback, about a giant killer wild boar. Next up is his first 3-D feature, Bait, which is to be produced by Darclight. Beyond the break you’ll find the sales art, along with the full synopsis.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.
