Check out the trailer for the horror-comedy titled Sharkula, the new movie features Dracula, whose darkness has no limits as he uses a fierce sea creature for his wicked plans. The low-budget film is expected to make its debut sometime this June.
Sharkula is written and directed by Mark Polonia, who previously directed two other sharksploitation movies such as Sharkenstein in 2016 and last year’s Noah’s Shark. It stars Rappaport as Renfield and Jeff Kirkendall as Dracula.
“The curse of Count Dracula lives on in shark-infested waters, claiming the lives of a tourist community,” reads the synopsis. “A sea hunt for the new species results in monsters, madness, and bloodshed. This great white is putting the bite back into terror, and it has help with the aid of new vampires intent on seeing it survive.”
The sharksploitation genre started with the success of 1975’s classic thriller movie Jaws, which was followed by three more sequels throughout the ’80s. Since then, a number of sharksploitation movies had been produced including Deep Blue Sea, Sharknado, The Shallows, 47 Meters Down, and The Meg.
