Lights! Camera! Action!

Director Scott Wheeler is really trying to outdo the makers of "Frozen" with his version of the ferocious-predator-in-ski-country-thriller, Avalanche Sharks. Yes, Avalanche Sharks. The plot's chief disaster happens on Twin Peak Ski Resort's busiest day of the year, Bikini Snow Day. There is a "motley crew of snowboarders" reluctantly brought in to assist, while Brooke Hogan is some kind of doctor. The plot seems a little too terrible to be in contention for B-movie cult status success, but only time and the few screens it will play on can tell. Nonetheless, Powder Magazine makes a compelling case for how Avalanche Sharks might play off bits of Jaws the way Aspen Extreme echoed Top Gun. [Powder Magazine]
