Interview w/Misty Talley (Director of SANTA JAWS & More)
Believe it or not, us freaking out over a particular film is a rarity on this show. There have been the occasional titles that we’ve lost our minds over, sure. MARTYRS (2008) and MIDSOMMAR (2019) are the only two that currently ring a bell. However, something transformative happened this year, and now no Christmas will ever be the same. I don’t ever want it to be the same. I now know better. You know the saying: When you know better, you do better.
Two words: Santa. Jaws.
This is now your yearly Christmas film. Throw away NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Goodbye, DIE HARD. SANTA JAWS has replaced both of you as the must-see film to get you in that Christmas spirit.
After stumbling across it a year late on SyFy, we just HAD to reach out to director Misty Talley and invite her on the show for a chat. Kind enough to accept, we discussed SANTA JAWS, her other sharksploitation films, what it’s like working on a Lifetime Christmas movie, and what she has planned for the future.
Ever wonder how SyFy comes up with those quirky, low-budget films? Are you a huge sharksploitation fan like we are? Come on down, because this is the episode for you.
