I discovered Gatorshark vs. Zombie Cheerleaders purely by accident. When I did, my jaw hit the floor. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see a horror flick about undead cheerleaders battling a shark/alligator hybrid? I quickly hopped around the internet and found that the creators of this movie were social media friendly and had already launched a Facebook and Twitter page. Unfortunately, I then discovered that there hadn’t been any updates on this project since October 2012.
Here’s the information that was released before the media blackout.
Gatorshark vs. Zombie Cheerleaders obviously follows the story of a half shark, half alligator creature attacking a camp full of undead cheerleaders. A more fleshed out synopsis was provided by the film’s official website: “A half-shark half-alligator creature escapes from a secret government facility and starts wreaking havoc in a remote California town. In a campground close by a group of young girls arrive to attend a cheerleading training camp to prepare for the cheerleading world championships. Little do they know that the cabins are built on an ancient haunted burial ground, and the dead come to life during the night and start infecting the girls. The few that are left alive must fend for themselves against not only the living dead but also the Gatorshark, a creature with the head of a shark and the body of an alligator.”
The film is penned by Bob Madia, who has written several short films including Curse of The Scarecrow and Scared Stiff: Welcome Mats. There has been no comment on the director working alongside Madia to bring Gatorshark vs. Zombie Cheerleaders to life. However, there has been a few casting annoucements. Confirmed cast members will include scream king Shawn C. Phillips, Trisha Paytas (Youtube sensation, SyFy’s “Who Wants To Be A Superhero?”), Alexander Rhodes, Kristen Kelly (Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club”), and model Jade Bryce.
As of October 2012, the film was in pre-production with creators calling it a glorious B-horror-comedy. And that was the last we heard. Was Gatorshark vs. Zombie Cheerleaders a hoax? Did the production fall through the cracks? Did it get picked up by SyFy channel? No one knows for sure! But I am hoping that this flick sees the light of day eventually. I know I’m down to watch it!
