Frightfest Halloween preview: Bait 3D Simon Fitzjohn October 23, 2012 Features, Film4 Frightfest 1834 Jaws gets a modern-day update Australian style at Frightfest this Halloween with the screening of Kimble Rendall’s Bait 3D. A truly off-the-wall affair, the flick starts off as a fairly straightforward thriller as a host of shoppers at the Oceania underground mall are terrorised by a crazed bandit. But all that goes out the window when a freak tsunami swallows the mall and suddenly the shoppers have a bigger threat to worry about – like a pack of hungry sharks for example. Bait 3D comes from an idea by Highlander helmer Russell Mulcahy and stars the likes of Xavier Samuel, Julian McMahon and Phoebe Tomkin. The ads promise in-your-face shark terror and, let’s face it, it has to be better than Jaws 3D or Shark Night 3D – doesn’t it? Bait 3D screens as Frightfest Halloween: London on October 27.
