'Avalanche Sharks'...The Trailer Proves It's Snow Joke!

Courtesy: Fangoria
Syfy has pretty much cornered the market on putting sharks in unlikely places ... sand, tornados...snow. Oh yes, you’re not safe anywhere. Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the slopes? Yep...a SHARKALANCHE!

Actually the working title is “Avalanche Sharks” and judging by the trailer, they could be the result of a meteor or a curse. But does it matter? It’s all about pretty people getting eaten in horrific ways. Best part? Despite the frosty setting, there are still bodacious babes in bikinis.

Have we met our saturation point with these freak shark flicks or do they keep getting made because we love them so much. With the massive success of “Sharknado,” how can filmmakers not try for their own unlikely success story? No air date has been released but we'll keep you posted.

Here’s the official synopsis thanks to Fangoria:

“After a horrific avalanche, the staff at Twin Pines Ski Resort starts to receive reports of missing people and creatures that move beneath the snow. As the body count piles up, the management tries to cover up the situation, which leads to disaster on their busiest day of the year: Bikini Snow Day.

Spring break in the mountains: snowboarding, beer, drunken co-eds in bikinis. As the yearly Bikini Ski Day party descends on a small mountain town, something lurks beneath the snow. When an unwitting rider causes an avalanche, it awakens a huge, menacing, prehistoric Snow Shark! With a newfound taste for human flesh, the Snow Shark picks off the snow bunnies mercilessly. Cut off from help by mountainous terrain and blinding snow, the local sheriff must make an unlikely alliance with a motley crew of snowboarders to take down the Snow Shark before the white hills run red with blood!”
