Thanks to a little movie called Jaws, we'll always fear the ocean. No number of documentaries about diminishing shark populations or their hesitation to approach, much less attack, humans will change thisâ€”primarily because, for every one of those pro-shark flicks, there are several more movies like Steven Spielberg's classic 1975 horror flick that reinforce the image of them as blood-thirsty, prehistoric predators.
The latest is John Stockwell's thriller Dark Tide, in which Halle Berry, who's looking to revive her career, plays a diver traumatized by a shark attack who reluctantly returns to South Africa's Great White Shark-infested waters to tutor a big spending thrill-seeker, after she's urged by her old partner and boyfriend (Unfaithful's Olivier Martinez). Based on the trailer, we're already pissing our wet suit. With this new deep-sea nightmare hitting screens on Friday (then DVD and Blu-ray on 4/24), we take a look back at the scariest and funniest bloodletting in a bite-sized gallery of The Best Shark Attacks In Movies.
