Alician Silverstone and James Tupper in The Requin
Talk about sheer bad luck. In the film The Requin, one vacationing couple thought they are in paradise. However, with a freak storm, they were swept out to sea from their hotel villa (yes, you read that right) into the open waters as they must survive against a shark swarm.
And you thought you saw every shark movie possible.
The movie stars Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, Batman & Robin) and James Tupper (Me and Orson Welles, Mr. Popper Penguins). Le-Van Kiet (Furie, Gentle) directed and wrote the movie.
Here is the official synopsis:
There’s terror in paradise when Jaelyn (Alicia Silverstone) and Kyle (James Tupper) arrive at a remote seaside villa in Vietnam for a romantic getaway. A torrential storm descends, reducing the villa to little more than a raft and sweeping the young couple out to sea. Suddenly, another danger appears a school of great white sharks. With her injured husband watching helplessly, Jaelyn must battle the deadly predators alone in this tense thriller that rides an unrelenting wave of fear.

With every shark movie, it follows the same formula of people out to sea on survivalist instincts. Of course, every shark movie is different in how the victims end up in shark-infested waters in the first place.
With The Requin, it sure helps to have Alicia Silverstone attached as the lead although she’s been out of the blockbuster films since the 90s. Nonetheless, she still has star power and her fans will not be disappointed in her for being in this thriller film.
The Requin is in select theaters, On Demand, and available digitally on January 28.
