Syfy's 'Ghost Shark' ... Revenge of 'Sharknado?'

Courtesy Syfy
Just when you thought the Syfy Network couldn't dream up another shark movie, they've scared up something we bet the Ghost Hunters AND Ghost Adventures crew couldn't even tackle. Yes folks, Ghost Shark is floating into your living rooms this August 22 at 9 p.m. ET and it doesn't care if you're on land or in the water.

The Active Entertainment film is directed by Griff Furst, and stars Mackenzie Rosman, Richard Moll, Dave Davis, and Sloane Coe.

The best part of Ghost Shark is that, according to Entertainment Weekly, "Thomas Vitale, Syfy’s Executive Vice President of programming and original movies, says that the creativity behind the latest TV-movie to be added to the lengthy list of shark hits was inspired by an idea from his 7-year-old daughter."
Here is Ghost Shark'synopsis, then, if you're brave enough, check out the trailer below.

Last Fourth of July, teenager Christy Bruce disappeared from a high school beach party. Her severed arm washed ashore a day later. Drunken sea captain Blaise Shaw became a hero to the small seaside community of Harmony after killing the great white shark that was deemed responsible, but the Christy Bruce murder was no shark attack. Blaise turns to ghost hunter Ava Conte, who is skeptical but intrigued by his ghost shark ramblings. With preparations for a massive July 4th celebration rapidly approaching, they soon find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy of sex and murder involving the town's wealthiest and most powerful citizens. Unprepared to contend with a Ghost Shark that can hunt on land, sea, as well as anywhere there is enough water or rain to sustain its phantom form, Blaise and Ava must uncover the truth about the towns dark past or fall victim to the Ghost Shark.
