In the wake of the success of Cocaine Bear, some horror fans may not have had enough of large, killer beast movies. They could be in luck because The Black Demon, a giant killer shark movie, is scheduled to be unleashed exclusively into theaters on April 28, 2023. The film promises to be about a wrathful megalodon attacking a family out on the ocean. Apparently, no cocaine is needed by this beast, just primal rage!

The Black Demon is directed by Adrian Grünberg (Rambo: Last Blood) and stars Josh Lucas (Ford v Ferrari, Yellowstone), Fernanda Urrejola (Cry Macho, Narcos: Mexico), and Raúl Méndez (Cocaine Godmother, Narcos). Its official synopsis:

"Oilman Paul Sturges’ (Lucas) idyllic family vacation turns into a nightmare when they encounter a ferocious megalodon shark that will stop at nothing to protect its territory. Stranded and under constant attack, Paul and his family must somehow find a way to get his family back to shore alive before it strikes again in this epic battle between humans and nature."

More details about The Black Demon

The Black Demon is written by Boise Esquerra and Carlos Cisco (story by). Esquerra appears to be relatively new to screenwriting but has written for the TV series Blackwater. Carlos Cisco has been on the writing staff of Star Trek: Discovery. In any case, this movie promises to be something for creature feature fans to see on the big screen as (perhaps) a springtime treat. The film is about 100 minutes and rated R “for some grisly images.” In other words, it could be some good, wholesome fun for the entire family!

Here is the trailer for The Black Demon (and, if the trailer is to be trusted, few monster movie fans will have reason to say “I megalodon’t want to see that”):
