Ridiculous Horror Movie: Manatee


Manatee/ The once gentle manatees are tired of dealing with humans. For years they’ve been getting hurt by boat propellers, but no more. You thought you only had to deal with sharks in the ocean? Well now look out for Manatee.

While remarkably similar in theory to my “The Squirrels” this one I have had in my head for awhile. I’d seen a couple of the cheesy SyFy movies like “Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus”, “Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus”, “Mega Python vs. Gatoraid” (what? I have EXCELLENT taste in movies), plus “Jaws” and “Piranha”. So I was thinking what killer creature from the sea hasn’t been done yet? Better yet… what is the kindest/gentlest sea creature that would be least likely to attack humans? Manatees! So yeah this spawned before The Squirrels.
This poster is, clearly, based off of the “Jaws” poster. I even used the same font “Amity Jack.”
