The independently produced thriller opens Friday in limited theatrical release.
When he wasn’t busy dealing with various interlopers as a younger John Dutton in Yellowstone flashbacks, Josh Lucas recently found time to tangle with a humongous shark in The Black Demon, an indie thriller opening today in limited theatrical release.
Fernanda Urrejola of Cry Macho and Julio Cesar Cedillo of The Harder They Fall co-star in the film, which was directed by Adrian Grunberg (Rambo: Last Blood).
What’s it all about? According to Highland Film Group: “Oilman Paul Sturges (Lucas) takes his family to Bahia Negra, the site of Paul’s best-performing rig, but the vibrant Mexican coastal town he once knew has mysteriously crumbled as the townsfolk believe the rig has awoken a shark of legend, known as The Black Demon. With his family scared to be left alone, they arrive on the rig only to have their boat ferociously attacked by the massive black shark. Laying claim to the local waters aggressively protecting mother nature against human threats, it destroys everything in its path. Paul and his family are now stranded with the few men who have survived. Under constant attack by the giant monster and with time ticking away, Paul must find a way to get his family back to shore alive.”
Here is a trailer for The Black Demon.
