Following on from the trailer drop for the mockbuster Cocaine Shark, another Selachimorpha picture is swimming our way later this year. The Black Demon is directed by Adrian Grünberg (Rambo: Last Blood) from a script by Boise Esquerra (Blackwater) and stars Josh Lucas (The Forever Purge), Fernanda Urrejola (Cry Macho) and Julio Cesar Cedillo (Sicario).
The official synopsis is:
When oilman Paul Sturges (Lucas) takes his family to Bahia Negra, the crown jewel of Baja and the site of Paul’s best performing rig, the vibrant Mexican coastal town he once knew has mysteriously crumbled. In the decrepit ghost town, the last inhabitants tell Paul the offshore platform has awoken ‘El Demonio.’ Scared to be left alone, the family follows Paul out to the platform and just after they get on, the man and boat that risked bringing them is ferociously attacked by a massive black shark. This shark is unlike any other creature; a shark of legend, known as the Black Demon. It has laid claim to the local waters aggressively protecting Mother Nature against human threats. It kills everything and repeatedly charges the oilrig itself, threatening to destroy it. Paul and his family are stranded with the few men who have survived and now discover explosive charges have been set on the legs of the platform. Under constant attack by the giant monster and with the time literally ticking away, Paul must find a way to get his family back to shore alive.
