The film Shark in Venice (2008) is a sharksploitation film directed by Danny Lerner and stars Stephen Baldwin, Vanessa Johansson and Giacomo Gonnella. The movie was released to negative critical reception. Filmed in Bulgaria, the setting was changed to Venice in order to seem more attractive to audiences.
A man named David (played by Stephen Baldwin) and his girlfriend Laura (played by Vanessa Johansson) talk with police in Venice about the disappearance of his father. While riding through the canals, David sees a shark. He swims in the canals in scuba gear but his accompanying scuba diver is killed by a shark.
David escapes into a cave and finds himself in a strange underground temple complex with traps and ancient puzzles. He finds a room filled with treasure. He takes some gold then leaves, and recuperates from his wounds in a hospital.
A strange businessman named Vito (played by Giacomo Gonnella) hears about the treasure and tries to get David to help him retrieve the treasure. However, the businessman is actually part of the mafia, and David has to rescue his girlfriend from them. In a final battle, Vito is killed by a shark and David finds the treasure once again.
When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
