This is actually the first horror film I vividly remember watching at the age of 5. It stuck with me enough that a few years later when my reading skills improved that I even read the book! Sure it scared many many folks from swimming in the water, but heck sharks do attack people so maybe it was a good idea anyhow! Well that being said, there is a small community who happen to get a murderous shark attacking tourists, and they have to find a way to stop it. It's every bit as fun as it sounds, and if you haven't seen it you really do need to. It's a bit slow when the dialogue parts get going so it's not exactly the perfect horror film but it sure is a classic!
