Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine

Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine is a mockumentary made by the Discovery Channel for Shark Week 2014.

Plot: The massive great white shark Discovery has dubbed “Submarine” has been attacking boats/people around the coasts and a team of scientists has to find out why and try to track down Submarine!

Problems…

1. The great white shark named Submarine does not exists. Discovery has created another mockumentary for prime time Shark Week.

2. Great white sharks are not known to reach 30 feet. Only very large females make it past the 20 foot mark. Most great white sharks fall into the 13 to 17 feet range.

3. There’s absolutely no history anywhere showing any of this stuff actually happened. No boat attacks, no giant shark swimming around, there really have not been any extreme “shark events” like this. It’s sensationalism so Discovery can make advertising money $$$.

Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine is a completely fake documentary. It uses actors instead of scientists, the events are fictional, this is just make-believe. This is one of many new mockumentaries that fit into a trend… Animal Planet, Discovery, the History Channel, and National Geographic are producing fictional documentaries that are either very lossely based on fact or are completley fictional. They then do not explain to you that they are not real, fictional, anywhere in the show. You have to dig deep or really read into the brief seconds of explanatory text the shows offer up to be able to learn these documentaries are in fact mockumentaries.
