Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark Cover
Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark
Directed by Emile Edwin Smith
Written by Jose Prendes
Starring Christopher Judge, Elisabeth Röhm, Kate Avery, Hannah Levien, Debbie Gibson
The Asylum
Release Date: January 28, 2014

A new megalodon shark has surfaced in the ocean waters and it doesn’t take long for the massive shark to begin acting just like its predecessors as it begins a worldwide tour of aquatic terror. This time around though, the government is at the ready as they have built their own giant mechanical shark to combat the prehistoric monstrosity on its own turf.

Helmed by a married couple in the US Navy and powered by a KITT-inspired artificial intelligence system, the shark-shaped submarine battles it out against the Mega Shark leaving carnage, ship wrecks, and countless dead in their wake. As they study the patterns of the megalodon they realize it is headed on a crash course for Sydney where the ancient spawning grounds of the megalodons are and there is only one conclusion: it is expecting to find a mate there!

With shark-attack horror movies and spectacle documentaries continuing to move full steam ahead, The Asylum breaks out one of their most popular oversized beasts for its third outing with Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark and the series has never looked better. Here, the movie obviously takes the genre to its next stage in evolution with some kaiju-inspired and Pacific Rim riffing fun by adding robots to the mix.

The latest movie he has scripted, coming out at the end of the January, is the third in the Mega Shark franchise, Mega Shark vs Mecha Shark. Prendes also is turning to the literary scene with his debut novel, Sharcano, which has a premise that must be heard to be believed!

I recently got a chance to sit down with Prendes to talk about his work, The Asylum, and all things monster.
