SYNOPSIS:
75 years after World War II, an arctic research team discovers the Himmelsfaust, a colossal Nazi Warship thought to be long lost. Within they find Third Reich's base for a weapon like no other: Sky Sharks- Jet-propelled, artillery-equipped, aeronautical and manned by an army of undead elite Nazi soldiers, these flying beasts were created to prevent the downfall of the Third Reich. But now they seek revenge and to claim their final victory - taking down the whole world with them in process. Dr. Klaus Richter puts together an elite team which includes his two beautiful daughters, Angelique and Diabla. He also has a secret weapon from a forgotten secret US military project known as Dead Flesh Four

ANALYSIS:
SKY SHARKS is like the bastard love child of IRON SKY and SHARKNADO. Its distant cousin seems to be SHOCK WAVES. You have undead Nazi soldiers riding flying armored sharks that can turn invisible. The filmmakers also find an excuse to insert nudity and sex scenes where it doesn't even need to do that given the high B movie concept it already has. The back cover says "Zombie Nazis and Flying Sharks- What more can you want?!" and you don't really need anything more than that. It has plenty of mythology behind how the zombie Nazis and flying sharks were created. The nudity is just extra fluff that really wouldn't be missed if you edited it out of the movie. It isn't brilliant like IRON SKY, but it is a delight to watch if you need a B movie cult classic to watch on a Friday night or a rainy day.

Stay tuned during the end credits since it has a mid credits tease for a sequel and an end credits fake credit for SKY FROGS.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
I do wish there were some behind-the-scenes extras but instead we just get
Trailer for SKY SHARKS
Preview trailers for COMA, ATTRACTION 2: INVASION, ASHFALL, and THE CLOSET

FINAL ANALYSIS: SKY SHARKS embraces its B movie concept and goes with it. It would make for an excellent double feature with either IRON SKY or SHOCK WAVES. It is definitely at least worth a rental or even a blind buy if you're into these type of movies.
