The bites just keep on comin’…

Vertical Entertainment has announced a May 13 VOD/digital release date for SHARK BAIT, formerly titled JETSKI. Directed by James Nunn from a script by Nick Saltrese, it stars Holly Earl, Jack Trueman, Catherine Hannay, Malachi Pullar-Latchman and Thomas Flynn. The synopsis: “A group of spring breakers are enjoying the trip of a lifetime on the sandy beaches of Mexico. As the sun rises after a night of partying, they steal a couple of jet skis and race out to sea. But bravado and bad decisions lead to a terrifying accident. Stranded miles from shore, the true horror begins when the group realizes they’ve drifted into shark-infested waters. With no way back and one friend badly bleeding, the group must quickly figure out how to survive the predator lurking in the waters below.”
