So I am trying to figure out an old movie that I watched as a kid (roughly 8-10 years ago).

Parts of the movie I can remember is that there were these shark-like (or eel-like) creatures that flew around and only some people can see them. I think they were called "Snarks" (not 100% sure).

  • Not much to go on here, and I see there's a Close vote for Too Broad. The only thing it puts me in mind of is The Langoliers. Commented Mar 13, 2014 at 15:21
  • "shark" like and "eel" like are pretty different, any more specific?

  • sorry for being to broad. It's ok if you guys can't get the answer. I have watched The Langoliers long ago, but it isn't it. (but the film did seem like something out of a stephen king novel). Thanks for mentioning this film got to re-watch this. I'll try watching From Beyond to see what it is. The thing is I was in elementary school when I watched this film on tv. When I try picturing the monsters in the film the only thing that comes to mind is something that looks like the monsters from "From Beyond". Sorry I can't remember the plot, it's just that it was so long ago and I have tried going

If they look like eels, you might be thinking of From Beyond:

Which were only visible after one's pineal gland had been ... adjusted. Based on an HP Lovecraft story.



It could be the Langoliers by Stephen King.

Per wikipedia:

Two creatures, followed by hundreds more, resembling giant meatball-like monsters expanding and contracting with semicircular caves as mouths and chainsaw-like teeth leaving trails of black"

It was turned into a TV miniseries.
