If you’ve spent as much as five minutes on the website over the years, you’ll know I can’t resist a shark movie. We can all accept the greatest shark film of all time is Jaws, and for almost 50 years, Hollywood (and the Syfy Channel) has been serving up a never-ending stream of movies featuring sharks. Josh Lucas returns to the water after the remake of Poseidon, only this time, he’s up against a ruddy massive shark!
It’s man versus myth in this supernatural showdown for the ages. When oilman Paul Sturges (Josh Lucas, Yellowstone) takes his family to Bahia Negra, the crown jewel of Baja and the site of Paul’s best-performing rig, the vibrant Mexican coastal town he once knew has mysteriously crumbled. In the decrepit ghost town, the last inhabitants tell Paul the offshore platform has awoken ‘El Demonio.’ This shark is unlike any other creature; a shark of legend, known as The Black Demon. Soon, Paul and his family find themselves trapped on the rig, under constant attack by the giant monster who slowly eats away at the rig’s supports – with time literally ticking away, Paul must find a way to somehow get his family back to shore alive. Also starring Fernanda Urrejola (Cry Macho), Raúl Méndez (Sense8), and Julio Cesar Cedillo (Sicario), The Black Demon is directed by Adrian Grünberg (Rambo: Last Blood) from a script by Boise Esquerra.
