Take an insane plunge into this splashy new trailer for Syfy's Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf

Syfy's (Disclosure: Blastr's Parent Company) continued legacy of wacky hybrid horror flicks like Mansquito and Piranhaconda will not be tarnished by its newest venture into the weird waters of crazy creature features, Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf.

With its tongue-in-cheek, self-deprecating cinematic style infused with Velveeta-smooth dialog and low-grade special effects, this new original TV film is meant to be viewed as a silly summer respite from the heat, fortified with a bottomless bowl of kettlecorn and your favorite frosty beverage, surrounded by a rowdy roomful of friends and family.

Produced by the legendary Roger Corman and directed by Kevin O'Neill (Dinoshark, Dinocroc), Sharktopus vs. Whalewolf stars Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers, Sleepy Hollow) and Catherine Oxenberg (Dynasty, Acapulco H.E.A.T.) in an intentionally hilarious homage to the classic campy monster movies of the '50s and '60s , dressed up with a little digital-age gloss.  

Take a look and tell us if you think it'll make a sizeable splash when it premieres on Syfy on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at 9/8c.
