  • Excerpt: It can be frustrating being a fan of sharksploitation pictures. And let’s be clear, “Jaws” (1975) does not belong in that category. That’s a film which transcends the exploitation moniker, despite some who claim it’s nothing more than a well-made B-movie. I’m talking about the films that make it clear from the onset that they’re all about one thing: getting people eaten.

Bait 3D Review

DoBlu
3 October 2012
  • Excerpt: In the tradition of Snakes on a Plane comes Sharks in a Grocer , or for short, Bait . Teens, criminals, and bitchy store managers are trapped in a game of survival as a tsunami washes a 12-foot great white into the store, where inhabitants must deal with their situation. Melodrama ensues as contrivances place two ex-lovers together in a solid example of set design, while grievances are aired on all sides. Shocking no one, people die and emotions boil.

  • Excerpt: Ah, the shark movie.  Will it ever go out of style?  Somehow I doubt it.  I’m not sure if we should thank Director Steven Spielberg for what he did with Jaws or condone him because its spawned an entire genre of “wannabe” movies just like it.  Now that’s not to say that there’s an element of truth in all of these films.  Evidently there are so many sharks in the water that anyone in their right mind should stay out.

Bait - 3D

High-Def Digest
17 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Part of the latest horror trend of underwater predators, 'Bait' starts off strong with good suspense and frights as a pair of great white shark claim a market as their feeding territory. Unfortunately, this low-budget Australian production soon forgets the silliness of its premise and quickly drowns beneath the weight of its own melodrama. The Blu-ray arrives with an excellent 3D presentation and satisfying lossless audio.

Review: ‘Bait’

Variety
29 August 2012
  • Summary: With a healthy sense of irony compensating for some garbled plotting and hit-and-miss f/x, this "Bait" should really hook fans in ancillary.

  • Summary: Full disclosure: a high concept shark thriller will have me onboard just by being a high concept shark thriller. And the concept behind this movie is so high it makes Deep Blue Sea look like Howard's End . Supermarket + armed robbers + tsunami + sharks = a film that would have to go out of its way to be boring. More And it never is. Boring that is. Bait explores its admirably wacko plot with a mostly straight face, allowing some degree of genuine tension to build.

FILMDUDE
20 September 2012
  • Excerpt: "Bait" is the story of a very hungry shark, brought beyond the shore with the help of some unremarkable special effects. Once the disaster subsides, the talent emerges from the water and we have the consummate setting for chills and spills. They make it quite clear which fish we want to live, and the chumps to be chewed, not shying from the blood and limbs synonymous with killer sharks, yet still suffers from taking itself a little too seriously. Dead in the water.
