Movie Info

The coastal town of Hampton Bay is threatened when a tiger shark starts chomping up their vacationers in the king of all Jaws rip-offs, Cruel Jaws. Days before the annual Regatta celebration, the townspeople are faced with financial ruin if something isn't done about their newfound shark problem. If that wasn't enough, the owners of the local amusement park have been subject to a hostile takeover from a prospective businessman looking to cash in on their prized property. It's up to the sheriff, the park's owner, and a shark expert to head out and destroy the killing fish before the summer economy is slashed and the park is left for the bulldozer. Directed by Italy's foremost expert on rip-off cinema, Bruno Mattei (under the name William Snyder), Cruel Jaws features a heap load of footage taken from Enzo Castellari's The Last Shark, as well as snippets from the first two Jaws flicks, plus musical cues from none other than Star Wars.

Audience Reviews for Cruel Jaws

  • Nov 13, 2009
    Bruno Mattei has never been known for originality but this one takes the cake as it not only rips off ideas from Jaws but actually uses scenes from it...AND the sequels...AND it's older cousins, The Last Shark and Deep Blood. The only fun here though is trying to figure out which scene came from which film otherwise its a dull, eye rolling waste of time.
