Prof. Chip Nataro

What started out as a bit of a joke during the first days of the pandemic shutdown quickly evolved to become a labor of love. Sharksploitation films are movies where the central theme is sharks eating people. When the author first began this adventure, colleagues thought there would only be 20-30 of these movies. But over 100 movies were reviewed with several more unavailable in any form. There are great sharksploitation films such as Jaws. There are terrible sharksploitation films like Shark Exorcist. And then there are the great terrible films like the original Sharknado and House Shark. This session will focus on sharksploitation films, but will also address the author’s rationale for writing a book about it, You’re gonna need a bigger book.
