When a leviathan of a Great White begins making snacks out of the good people of Amity Island, it's up to Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider), grizzled fisherman Quint (Robert Shaw), and marine biologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) to embark on one of the greatest fish stories ever told.

Very few films have the ability to instill deep-rooted phobias in those who sit down to watch them. Steven Spielberg's 1975 classic terrified moviegoers to a point that almost crippled the shoreline tourism trade at the time of its release. More than four decades later, the thought of a wide-open and sharp-toothed abyss lurking just beneath the surface is still very present in the minds of any swimmer whose feet leave the safety of the sea-floor.
