Son of a fish Santa Jaws - the bizarre killer shark movie that may rescue 2020

The trailer, complete with a festive soundtrack, is worth a look, just to see the shark’s red eyes and festive fin cutting through the water.

Santa Jaws the killer shark

A giant fish could be about to save 2020—no it’s not the return of Fungie, it’s a killer shark in a Santa hat. 

Amazon Prime have just done something extremely fishy and unleashed Santa Jaws onto their streaming platform.

Forget Sharknado, this festive Syfy crossover promises to be so bad, no one will hear you scream, because you will be laughing your blues away.

The premise of the movie is simple, it follows the fortunes of a rogue great white shark wearing a Santa hat on his dorsal fin.

While the horror flick was initially released in 2018, it failed to make a splash in the box office but this week it is swimming into Amazon Prime.

And if you have been pining out for the sort of cinematic gold that saw Jedward devoured by a tornado full of tiger sharks, well your luck is in.

According to IMDB the plot (and I use this term lightly) follows Cody, “an aspiring comic book artist who happens to be gifted a pen which changes reality.

“As he first draws Santa Jaws making it come to life as Cody’s family and friends are picked off.

“First no one believes him but soon his remaining family and friends find out it’s true and race to battle for survival! Who will win?”

The trailer, complete with a festive soundtrack, is worth a look, just to see the shark’s red eyes and festive fin cutting through the water.

But Santa Jaws is not the only aquatic creature in the Amazon Prime stable that can help lift your spirits.

Maybe try and seek out Keith Duffy’s action/horror film, the not so critically acclaimed flop Robocroc.

Also available on the streaming platform, (or completely free on YouTube) this snappy picture is the Boyzone star’s first outing as a buff action figure.

Made in Lithuania in 2013, on a modest budget, the movie opens in a top-secret lab that has transformed a saltwater crocodile into an unstoppable mechanical killing machine.

As luck would have it an unmanned spacecraft crash-lands into the military facility, unleashing the creature, conveniently into a nearby water park.

As he feasts on the locals, tank-top wearing Duffy is called in to rescue the situation.

If either of these films can’t get you through lockdown, then I don’t know what will.
