Have sharks jumped the shark?

Just when you thought it was safe to start surfing the net without some kind of terror-shark related news, Fangoria releases the trailer to “Avalanche Sharks.” Some are calling this the sequel to “Sharknado,” which we all know it is not. That film is being scheduled for 2014, according to our own Rick Bentley.

Let’s see: We’ve already been through other fish. And snakes. There was the killer pig movie. And the giant rabbits. There was that devil dog movie that wasn’t “Cujo.” We’ve seen rats, bats and of course, birds … What’s left? Has there been a killer house cat movie?

In non-movie shark news, this.
