Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws

Seeing this tonight... so damn excited. There's more than a few 48Hours veterans involved.

Who else is going to a Christchurch or Auckland screening?

Update: this film is awesome. I'd really recommend you see it. And see it in a theatre if you can. The reactions of the audience enhance the whole experience.

I'm going to be giggling over a bunch of scenes for weeks to come.

Throwing my 2 cents in, I loved the film, hilarious, entertaining, engaging, and (because this is the 48hours forums) impressive and inspiring. the film is great already but when you consider that it was made so for next to nothing and shot guerrilla style it's an amazing achievement.

Don't just watch it to support NZ low budget cinema, watch it because it's funny as hell with plenty of genuine laugh out loud moments. I can't wait to dig into all the supplementary material that comes with a VOD purchase and hear all about how the film was made.

I do hope Andrew and the rest of the team have their next feature in the works!

Just quietly gonna point out that you can now buy this movie online.

A bunch of people familiar to these parts worked on the movie and people seem to like it so far.

Stuff called it "a surreal slice of silliness," Twitchfilm said it's "a hilarious and inventive treat," and Cinema Aotearoa proclaimed it "a cult classic in the making the likes of which we haven’t seen in New Zealand for far too long."

It's cheap, easy, DRM-free, high quality, and feature-laden, so have at it, folks.
