5-Headed Shark Attack Is Now Available To Watch On Amazon Prime
The majority of filmmakers set out to make good films. But there is a growing subset of movies that are seemingly made with the purpose of being... well, a bit rubbish. And a lot of them involve sharks. This one, for instance:
Yes, one such film is 5-Headed Shark Attack, which is available to watch on Amazon Prime.
Now, I haven't actually watched 5-Headed Shark Attack, so I can't be sure that it is rubbish. However, if you watch the trailer above, or just read the title of the film, you can be pretty confident that it is almost definitely rubbish.
Indeed, it boasts an unimpressive rating of 3.1 on IMBd and 25 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Having said all this, there is clearly a market for multi-headed shark attack films, as 5-Headed Shark Attack is actually the third of four films in the series.
It follows on from 2-Headed Shark Attack and 3-Headed Shark Attack, and precedes 6-Headed Shark Attack (who knows what happened to 4-Headed Shark Attack).
A brief synopsis of the 2017 release reads: "The 5-Headed Shark is all heads and teeth. Shaped like a demented starfish, this monster terrorises the open ocean before invading the beaches of Puerto Rico, endangering the once peaceful island paradise."
So if you fancy settling down on the sofa and watching a badly-animated multi-headed shark jumping out of the ocean and eating a helicopter, look no further.

The film is directed by Jacob Cooney and Bill Hanstock and stars Nikki Alexis Howard, Chris Bruno and Lindsay Sawyer.
If you're not convinced yet, perhaps the five-star review of a pleased Amazon customer - who likened the film to the Jaws series - will sway you.
It reads: "As this was produced by the legendary Asylum film company, I had high expectations for the film, I'm pleased to say I was not disappointed.
"It had me on the edge of the seat from the get go, with non-stop action, including a truly amazing scene towards the end of the film that will live long in the memory of everyone that watched it.
"The shark itself was obviously the main star of the show, and the way the 5th head was brought in midway through [surely a spoiler?] was truly inspiring.
"I believe in years to come this film will be talked about in the same way that the Jaws films are talked about now. I'm sure I'm not alone in waiting with baited breath for a news of a sequel."
You've heard them, Asylum - give that shark a seventh head.
