I was passed this press release from SRS Cinema, having missed their news on the "House Shark" teaser trailer premiere yesterday… and I for one am excited! "Jaws" was one of my all time favorite movies, and "House Shark" looks like the perfect spoof. And it's being made by Ron Bonk, the guy who made one of my favorite movies not just from 2015, but maybe of all time, "She Kills". Read the release below and then go over and buy EVERYTHING!
“House Shark” Indiegogo Campaign Launches with Teaser Trailer
“Just when you thought it was safe to go home!”

January, 2016 – Syracuse, NY
SRS Cinema unleashed a teaser trailer this past Thursday for their current production of “House Shark”, and now they’ve followed it up with an inventive, humor-filled Indiegogo campaign to aid in getting the movie financed. If you’re a “JAWS” fan - and who isn’t?!! - the tongue-in-cheek perks alone make it a must-read. Perks are named after either breeds of shark, or characters from that blockbuster film, while the descriptions give new slants on many of the movie’s all too memorable quotes. There’s also a brief fundraiser specific video with inside info on the movie’s writer/director, Ron Bonk, his past productions like “She Kills” (which is pre-selling as part of the campaign), and of course details on “House Shark” – which includes bonus glimpses at the scenes already shot and some quick FIRST EVER glances at the concept art for the House Shark itself. As a bonus, there’s 60+ more links in the gallery to past movie trailers and videos from Ron Bonk’s long career in the underground, as well as behind the scenes pictures and promotional stills from many of his past productions. SRS also promises video updates each week during the campaign.

Synopsis: “When Frank (Trey Harrison) finds his happy home under attack by a dangerous but largely unknown breed of shark, he's enlists the aid of the world's only "House Shark" Expert, Zachary (Michael Merchant), and a grizzled former real estate agent, Abraham (Wes Reid), to embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast and claim back his life. It's JAWS in a house!”
From writer/director Ron Bonk and produced by Ron Bonk ("She Kills") & Jonathan Straiton ("Night of Something Strange"), it stars Wes Reid, Trey Harrison and Michael Merchant. The soundtrack will be composed by Emmett Van Slyke and the monster mechanics and gore FX will be handled by Marcus Koch. Ron Bonk describes it as both a love letter to the late 70’s blockbusters from Steven Spielberg, but also a homage to the great monster/horror flicks of the 70’s and 80’s. “House Shark” will be in production through August of this year, and a premiere is planned for end of summer 2017.
