“What can we say about Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre that hasn’t been said a thousand times before? When the SyFi Channel called writer/producer/director Jim Wynorski and asked him, “Do you have anything like Sharknado?” being the resourceful and clever fellow he is he immediately made up something with a shark – and instantly pitched Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre. Shortly thereafter the film was made on a very long production schedule – fifteen days. Jim Wynorski doesn’t fool around, which is why he’s made more movies than Martin Scorsese.
The fact is, if you’re a fan of exploitation films, you undoubtedly know who Jim Wynorski is. For Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre he, of course, went to his composer of choice, Chuck Cirino – they’re a team, like Hitchcock and Herrmann and Williams and Spielberg and Abbot and Costello. Jim comes from a time when making movies was nothing but a fun adventure, and Chuck understands that sensibility perfectly. Chuck is a fine composer and understands these films and knows just what kind of music they require – as Jim Wynorski says, “Heartfelt and pulse-pounding melodies.” It’s truly a fun score. And any movie that stars both Traci Lords and Dominique Swain is worth seeing.
So, here is the world-premiere CD release of Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre, something you won’t want to be without. Mastered by the great James Nelson, it’s fun, it’s irreverent, it’s Sharkansas!
Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre is limited to 500 copies. The first 100 orders will receive copies signed by Chuck Cirino and Jim Wynorski and the shark (well, maybe not the shark) as well as actresses Dominique Swain and Cindy Lucas..”.
