Land Shark (2020) Shockingly Good Chinese Monster Movie
Land Shark (2020) Shockingly Good Chinese Monster Movie


original Chinese title LU SHA [Land Shark]

director: Cheng Si-Yu and Lin Zhen-Zhao
starring: Luo Li-Qun · Xi Hei-Li · Tang Xin · Yang Yong


Director Lin Zhen-Zhao is quickly becoming the king of Chinese monster movies. After establishing himself with numerous above-average productions (including SNOW MONSTER and SNAKES), he helmed this remarkable film along with special FX genius Cheng Si-Yu. Despite the mundane [albeit cheezy] title and concept, this popcorn movie manages to transcend any low expectations into the realm of extraordinary through a cast of well-drawn characters, crisp dialogue and heart-thumping action.

The story deals with Mr Qian, the boss of a pharmaceutical company, who has invested in the Poseidon Project [a research laboratory located 100 meters below Towa Island]. Their goal is to develop a cure for cancer using a serum derived from a genetically altered shark. Its DNA has been mingled with that of an earthworm, turning the creature into a Tremor-ish monster, a shark capable of living on-or-under the ground, land or water. When the shark breaks free, the molecular mutation causes it to grow massively as it poses an immediate threat to the populated Ryan Island.



A Chinese film with English subtitles; widescreen format, uncut (80 min.),
in DVD format, encoded for ALL REGIONS, playable on any American DVD machine.
