NEW YORK, March 1 (UPI) -- The U.S. cable television network Syfy says it plans to air "Dinoshark," a new horror movie produced by cult filmmaker Roger Corman.

The film, starring Eric Balfour, is to air March 13 as part of the network's March Saturday Original Movies lineup.

"A lush Mexico vacation spot is terrorized by a mysterious prehistoric creature no one believes exists, except a young fishing boat captain," a synopsis said. "To prevent a bloodbath, the captain must stop Dinoshark before it invades an inland waterway full of pleasure boats and swimmers."

Among Corman's low-budget cult classics are "It Conquered the World," "Teenage Doll," "The Little Shop of Horrors," "House of Usher," "Pit and the Pendulum," "Premature Burial," "The Raven," "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Wild Angels" and "The Trip."
