Terrible Shark Movie Marathon – West St. Paul, MN

As many of you know, I host a fairly regular Bad Movie Night, where I show a couple of movies that people have never heard of and all of us yell at the screen, and people bring potluck-style foods to go with the theme of the evening. I decided to do things a little different this time around, mainly because I realized I own more than ten shark-themed really awful movies. It was time for a Terrible Shark Movie Marathon!!!!

Here’s the schedule, and yes, it did actually start at NOON:
  • Shark Swarm – Noon
  • Sharks in Venice – 2:45
  • 2-Headed Shark Attack – 4:15
  • Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus – 5:45
  • Sharktopus – 7:30
  • Sharknado – 9:00
I won’t even go over the movies for you, since they’re all the same, basically. All of them are filled with terrible special effects, buckets of fake blood, scantily clad co-eds, really fake screaming, and an occasional D-list celebrity.

But the more important part is ths creative food people bring to these things.

We had hummus with corners of pita chips stuck in it like shark fins.

Swedish Fish-flavored Candy Canes.

Gummy Great White Sharks (you can tell because they have white bellys) and Life Savers.

Island Kielbasa.

Blue Jello Shots with Gummy Great Whites in them.

Shark Flavored Fruit Snacks (NOT shark-flavored fruit snacks).

Landshark Beer – the only time I’ll buy a Jimmy Buffet product.

And D.Rough made a super awesome SHARK CAKE.

As you can tell, we have a LOT of fun with the potluck themes at our house. We’ve got some more Bad Movie Nights coming up – a Heavy Metal theme night and a WTF theme night. I can’t wait to see what people bring for food on THOSE nights!
