Plot[edit]

A group of 5 friends wakeboarding are attacked and devoured by a mutant two-headed shark. Meanwhile, a group of 23 people are sailing nearby on a ship, called the Sea King, led by professor and captain Franklin Babish, his co-captain Laura, and his wife, Anne, when the ship hits a dead shark, killed by a two-headed one. The dead shark becomes lodged and stuck in the ship’s propeller. Soon after, the two-headed shark attacks and eats it, damagig the ship, breaking the radio antenna, preventing Laura from calling for help and causing the ship to take on water. Kate notices an island nearby and Franklin decides to search for scrap metal there to help repair the ship. Laura drives the ship closer to the island, and Franklin takes the students over to it, while Anne, Laura, Han, and Dikilla remain on the ship. While Franklin and the students explore the island, Laura enters the water to repair the ship, but is attacked and ripped apart by the shark. Franklin and the students assemble in the abandoned village and set out on the search again. Kate tells Kirsten she is afraid of water due to bad experience with the shark. Kirk convinces Haley and Alison to go swimming with him and they enter the water, only to be eaten by the shark. The rest of the group find two speedboats before the island begins to collapse and an earthquake hits, causing Franklin to fall and badly injure his leg. Dana takes off her shirt and wraps his leg around. Jeff and Mike take Franklin back to the ship where Anne tends to him. Han, and Dikilla discover Laura's remains in the water and try to warn the others. Jeff and Mike also discover Laura's hand in the water before the shark attacks them and bites off Jeff's arm. They attempt to swim back to the ship, but both are ultimately eaten. Kate and Paul manage to fix the boats, while Cole finds a gasoline tank to fuel them. He then jumps in one of the boats with Ryan, Jamie and Alex and drives away, prompting Kate, Paul, and Dana to follow them in the other boat. The boats race each other, unaware of Franklin's and Anne's warnings about the shark. The shark attacks Cole's boat, causing Ryan to fall into the water, where he is devoured, alerting the others to the shark's presence. Paul realizes the shark is drawn to Cole's boat as it has a bigger engine. Cole also realizes this and jumps off the boat, leaving Jamie and Alex who are then eaten.The survivors reach the island, and Kate furiously confronts Cole for letting Jamie, Ryan and Alex die. A few minutes later, Anne, Franklin, Han and Dikilla abandon the ship and arrive at the island. Shortly afterward, another earthquake hits and the group realizes that the island is collapsing. Now that it is more urgent to escape, the group decides to hook up a generator to metal poles and place them in the water to distract the shark with electricity while Kate and Cole travel to the ship and repair it. The plan works until the shark attacks the poles, knocking Han and Dikilla into the water where they are eaten, and then swims to the ship. Kate fixes the ship, only for Cole to drive away without her, forcing her to swim back to the island. The shark attacks the ship, causing it to sink and send out a distress signal. Cole attempts to escape on a lifeboat, but the shark attacks and eats him anyway as his cell phone's ringing attracted it. The group panics, as the island begins to sink, prompting everyone to run for their lives. Kristen and Dana become separated from the group, venture onto a dock and are devoured by the shark as well. Franklin and Anne see a tsunami coming at the island, realize that they cannot escape, and are eaten too. The tsunami hits the island and it sinks, leaving the survivors with very little land. They take shelter in the still standing village chapel, but the shark breaks in and eats Lyndsey, Michelle, Liza, and Ethan. Kate, Paul, and Kirsten escape the chapel, discover the gasoline tank, and lure the shark towards it. Kate attempts to stab it while Kirsten takes the tank, and attracts the shark's attention. As the shark attacks and begins chewing her up, Kirsten blowns up herself and one of shark's heads with her lighter. Kate and Paul find one of the boats, turn it on, and jump off, taking shelter on the remaining part of the island. The shark attacks the boat, causing it to explode, and finally kill it. A helicopter responding to a distress call then comes to save Kate and Paul – the only two survivors of a group.
