Makua Charley is about the Hawaiian shark-man creature in local legends. The trailer looks like a slasher movie with all the blood and gore but it is all movie monster creature. Looks like a really low budget horror movie but as long as the acting and story holds up, why knock the film. Writers and directors Albert J. Cloutier and Jayne Cloutier just finished production and are about to take the creature movie on run in upcoming film festivals. The horror film stars Chenoa Hope, Jordan, Ashley Nohelani, Naoko Yamaguchi, Cass Higgins among many other so give the trailer a chance.
