Attack of the Killer Turds Shats Out a Trailer

I don't think you could possibly insult makers of the new micro-budget horror comedy Attack of the Killer Turds by describing their film as shitty. Even if Attack of the Killer Turds turns out to be entertaining, it is still guaranteed to be one of the shittiest movies ever made.

No Escape from Super Shark Attack on Land, Sea or Air

In the race to come up with the most outlandish maneating sea animal flick, it appears b-movie legend Fred Olen Ray is out to give Sharktopus a run for its money. As you'll see in this "Shark Week" parody teaser trailer for his latest creature feature Super Shark Attack, this gigantic shark not only rules the ocean as the ultimate predator and can "Air Jaws" with the best of them, you won't even be able to escape on shore now because this sucker can walk on dry land.

Halle Berry Swimming with Sharks in Dark Tide

It's amazing the resurgence that sea creatures have been enjoying over the last several months. Piranha 3D is just around the corner, but if you like your sea monsters with a bit more girth to them, the 2011 Halle Berry thriller Dark Tide just may be your hot ticket for terror.
