In a sleepy beach community, shoppers at an underground supermarket are terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs: A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town. Now trapped, with rushing water threatening to entomb them in a watery grave, the survivors discover they are chum for a pack of hungry great white sharks.
The deal was negotiated by Kasha, Josh Thomashow and Marc Barson for Anchor Bay Films; Gary Hamilton, Chris Perry and Mike Gabrawy on behalf of Arclight.
