‘SOMETHING IN THE WATER’ Trailer Swims Fans Into Shark Movie Season

It’s that time of year again, when the weather warms, sunscreen smells surround us, and the collective fear of the ocean’s infamous predator, the shark, grips the movie-loving world. With the release of the trailer for “Something in the Water“, directed by Hayley Easton Street, the wave of anticipation is building bigger and bigger. This summer, as the tide rolls in, it brings with it a new wave of shark cinema that promises to both horrify and attract audiences.

Riding the Wave of Tradition

As we know, Shark scare films focus on the connection between our fear and fascination. There is always a story to be told about the vast and uncharted oceans, as well as the species who are as much a part of the earth’s past as they are of its present. Something in the Water trailer teases the promise of a fresh story, while sticking to the original. 

A Synopsis to Sink Your Teeth Into

In the forthcoming aquatic horror film, a blissful destination wedding becomes a battle for survival. According to the synopsis, the film follows Meg (Hiftu Quasem), who hesitantly attends her old friend Lizzie’s (Lauren Lyle) wedding in the Caribbean with friends Cam (Nicole Rieko Setsuko) and Ruth (Ellouise Shakespeare-Hart).

Also along for the trip turned terror, is Ruth’s former lover Kayla (Natalie Mitson), whom she parted ways with after both surviving a deeply traumatic event. To no surprise, what comes next is jaw dropping as the horrifically hungry sharks crash the wedding party, and all hell breaks loose.
