Tubi Kicks Off August With Month-Long ‘Bitefest’

by Thomas Tuna

Hot sun. Cool water. Deadly sharks. Welcome to August on Tubi.

Tubi is bringing back Shark Month: Bitefest–a month-long programming event with a lot of (you guessed it) sharks–starting tomorrow, Aug. 1, according to a report on comicbook.com.

In addition to Tubi originals SwimSwamp Shark, Saving Jaws, Shark Land and all four entries in the iconic Jaws franchise, the event will spotlight Shark Bait on Aug. 1 and Shark Side of the Moon Aug. 12.

Shark Bait–which had a limited theatrical release back in May–is directed by James Nunn from a screenplay by Nick Saltrese. The film follows a group of young people on spring break in Mexico who decide to swipe a couple of jet skis and head for the open water.

As you might expect, the jet skis crash, leaving the hapless group miles from shore. “The true horror begins,” according to the logline, “when they realize they have drifted into shark-infested waters.” Ring the dinner bell.

Shark Side of the Moon “travels back in time to the Cold War, when the USSR developed hyper-aggressive humanoid sharks,” according to the synopsis. Funny, that tidbit never made the history books.

Anyway, “unable to kill them, USSR military scientists launched the sharks to the moon.” Hang on–it gets better.

Fast-forward to the present day and “the first team of American astronauts on the moon in decades must repair a module on the dark side of the moon, where they encounter the unkillable Russian moon sharks.” You can’t make up this stuff.
