Movie director Jim Wynorski and his team started shooting a reality warping science fiction movie for television at locations in Jackson County this week. Filming began Wednesday at Florida Caverns State Park, one of three primary locations being used in “Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre.”
The plot of the movie goes like this: When some fuel-harvesting frackers crack the Earth’s surface, they unleash an underground and heretofore unknown ancient ocean that is home to some prehistoric sharks. The sharks come to the surface and become land sharks whose most heartfelt desire is to eat some people. Meanwhile, a group of female inmates are out and about fleeing their bondage after a prison break. They get trapped with the sharks in a swamp while they’re on the run. They find a house and take refuge there while they try to plan a route that will take them to a nearby cave system and, they hope, out of danger from the sharks and the law.
