It’s the follow-up to one of the best of the past decade or so’s hundreds of shark movies.
RLJE Films has announced that it will release THE REEF: STALKED to theaters and on VOD/digital platforms July 29; the movie will premiere on Shudder the same day. Writer/director Andrew Traucki’s sequel to his well-received 2010 thriller THE REEF stars Teressa Liane, Ann Truong, Saskia Archer, Kate Lister and Tim Ross. The synopsis: “In THE REEF: STALKED, Nic [Liane], in an effort to heal after witnessing her sister’s horrific murder, travels to a tropical resort with her friends for a kayaking and diving adventure. Only hours into their expedition, the women are stalked and then attacked by a great white shark. To survive they will need to band together and Nic will have to overcome her post-traumatic stress, face her fears and slay the monster.”
“Audiences have an insatiable appetite for shark films, which we know first-hand from our incredible experience releasing THE REEF years ago,” says Mark Ward, chief acquisitions officer of RLJE Films. “We are thrilled to be working with the team again to bring this new terrifying adventure to audiences.”
