When aliens mix it up with sharks, mankind loses.

SHARK ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND is now available on digital platforms from Wild Eye Releasing. Directed by SOV veteran Mark Polonia (FEEDERS, SPLATTER FARM) from a script by John Oak Dalton (HAUNTED HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW, ALONE IN THE GHOST HOUSE) it stars Titus Himmelberger, Natalie Hallead, Jennie Russo, Steve Diasparra and Jeff Kirkendall. The synopsis: “A group of hostile aliens crash-land at the bottom of the ocean, and via mind control use sharks to terrorize a small town full of secrets in the hopes of completing their invasion mission. It’s up to a disparate group of townspeople to sort it out, but in the end it’s sharks vs. aliens in a surprising climax.”
