With summer 2018 in full swing, the common summer staples are visible everywhere. Sunshine, summer clothing, beaches, and oceans are what instantly come to mind when one thinks of summer. One thing that oceans contain that can you may forget about are sharks. Sharknado Week began on the SyFy Network this week, a week filled with movies of shark encompassed adventures and stories. August 15th will be the world premiere of “Frenzy,” a film directed by Jose Montesinos. A MarVista production starring Aubrey Reynolds, Gina Vitori, Lanett Tachel, and Taylor Jorgensen, this film shows how a group of friends seeking a seemingly fun vacation for a Vlog on the water turns into a do or die situation controlled by ruthless sharks in the middle of the ocean.
Director Jose Montesinos spoke about the title of the film, the making of the film and how the audience would feel after watching Frenzy. ” The producer came up with the title Frenzy because he wanted to do something that would capture the attention with it airing during SyFy Shark Week and because it’s three sharks you think FRENZY. We only had 12 days to shoot and the preproduction process started about a month and a half before shooting. We shot in Thailand so we had to rewrite the script to match what we were shooting. The audience will definitely come out with a feeling of relief at the end of the film, but there is also a relationship between the two sisters and there is also the survival aspect for people to relate to as well.” This thriller is sure to have you looking over your shoulder the next time you’re in the ocean. Frenzy premiers on SyFy August 15th.
