Along with absurdity and poor taste, however, there’s a certain brutal B-movie brilliance in Bait. An average cross-section of Australian society finds itself in a beachfront supermarket on one terrible day: troubled dad and daughter, tense couples, two guys with guns about to rob the tills, and so on. Then a freak tsunami hits, and waves come crashing in, a visual sequence incidentally conceived on broadly similar lines to Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter and Juan Antonio Bayona’s The Impossible, two rather more high-minded films about the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. So everyone’s trapped in the flooded store, perched on top of the freezer cabinets – and a 12-foot shark is roaming the flooded aisles! The darn thing is getting hungrier. One young woman has an annoying yapping little dog with her. Yikes. Eventually the group decide they need to distract the shark to make their desperate escape — and so live bait is needed. It is all very silly, and more Corman than Spielberg, but entertaining.
