KEVIN & MATT GEEK OUT ABOUT SHARK MOVIES!
Thursday, August 8, 2013 at 8:00 PM
Come celebrate Shark Week with Videology when comedian Kevin Maher and filmmaker Matt Glasson present their multi-media tribute to SHARK MOVIES.
Kevin and Matt Geek Out about SHARK MOVIES! is an obsessive look at dozens of classic (and some not-so-classic) movies from JAWS to SHARKNADO and almost everything in between. The hosts revisit the all-but-forgotten pre-JAWS films (dating back to the 1930’s). They sink their teeth into JAWSPLOITATION knock-offs, the sanctioned sequels, cable-TV documentaries and more contemporary CGI killer shark movies. Kevin and Matt also dissect the films that tried to be the next big blockbuster by substituting a Great White with a giant alligator, a man-eating octopus or a killer grizzly bear. Plus they showcase jaw-dropping clips from films that feature gratuitous shark scenes in non-Shark movies. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Shark geek-out without looking back at the hit TV show that literally jumped the shark.
• The Italian JAWS that Universal banned from the U.S.
• The inevitable JAWS-inspired mermaid porno: GUMS.
• Incredible scenes of sharks going against zombies, superheroes, giant apes, Jackie Chan, Burt Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, the Olsen
Twins and, of course, the Harlem Globetrotters.
In this special 90-minute presentation the AUDIENCE DECIDES which clips they’ll get to see. Come to the show and you’ll determine whether they screen a clip of Bo Derek in ORCA THE KILLER WHALE or Karen Black from KILLER FISH.
Kevin and Matt were special guests at Martha’s Vineyard for JAWSfest 2012. They’ve also presented their shark show at Boston’s Geek Week Comedy Festival, The Brooklyn Observatory and the 92Y Tribeca.
