05/22/2005: Freshwater Selachophobia Nightmares???
Not on my list of movies I want to see, because, as everyone who reads this blog knows by now…
I have Selachophobia!!!
From Query Letters I Love is this one about a movie concept for Freshwater Sharks?
”Daddy, why did you make the scientifically modified, fresh water shark and release it in the Midwest? It scares me! ;-(
"'A scientifically modified, fresh water shark terrorizes a popular resort lake in the Midwest.'
A 35 year old man is called to a small, lake resort town to attend his estranged father's funeral. On arrival, he discovers that something in the lake has taken the lives of several people - something his father may have set in motion. Now, Pete must face a fear that has kept him away from the water for twenty-five years, a fear that lurks just beneath the murky waters of the lake."
Yep, not on my list of movies to see produced…EVER.
I don't think there really are "truly" Freshwater Sharks, but more varieties that swim up freshwater channels and manage to survive in that in-between mix of sea and freshwater swells. [But don't quote me on that one - since my reading is limited to books about Sharks that come without pictures. You try finding those books!! Not easy to come by. LOL]
Though the premise is about a "genetically created Freshwater shark." Just what the World would need: a super-predator - so successful it's mananged to survive for millenniums virtually unchanged from the beginning of it's species evolution - that would get an entirely expanded new range of habitat to feed on anything in Freshwater. How crazee or stupid would that scientist have to be??
