Description by OLDIES.com:
A long lost cult-classic makes its anamorphic widescreen DVD debut from Synapse Films! An airplane goes down in the ocean during a storm and the few survivors find refuge on a small tour boat. Swept out to sea, these people slowly starve to death in the hot sun with barely any food or clean water. With no place to turn, the boat survivors resort to cannibalism to stay alive‚ that is‚ until the rescue planes come to pick them up and the man eating sharks decide it‚ s time to eat, too!
Director Rene Cardona Jr. has many horror films to his name, including THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE (1978) and BLOOD FEAST (1972). In 1978 he added CYCLONE to his directorial resume, producing a gross-out treat which is sure to delight fans of the genre. Initially drawing on the best traditions of disaster films, a cyclone sweeps a cast of unfortunate airplane travellers into the ocean. The survivors then enter into a harrowing quest to make it out of the ocean alive, but the shark-infested waters test them to the limits of human endurance. Some incredibly bloody scenes unfold, with Cardona Jr. delivering lashings of the red stuff as the crash survivors flail in the waters.
