Cody is 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?!
“Santa Jaws” sounds preposterous, and it is.
But it’s also exactly what it needs to be.
The director (Misty Talley) was able to keep this together pretty well instead of sending it straight off the rails, and managed to include the appropriate camp-to-family ratio that makes Christmas movies work. The script was creative. Some of the casting was excellent (Ritchie Montgomery, Haviland Stillwell, Hawn Tran all did great character work here). The result was a movie that is every bit as family-friendly as “The Meg” aspired to be without losing any of the qualities that make the best of the Sy-Fy shark movies work.
Yes, it’s still a “bad shark movie”. It’s as ludicrous as the title suggests, but it still managed to be a really good, really fun “bad shark movie”.
