A creepy B horror film
It makes Jaws 3 seem like an Oscar worthy film... It's that horrible. Boring, no sense of logic, nothing to offer. Unless you like to see wires holding up a puppet that is supposed to be a blood thirsty shark. A shark literally follows her across the ocean to the Bahamas to kill her specifically... Worst movie ever!!!!
Story line was great, location was good, acting was okay, the execution and special effects take all of the above, just to throw it away. If this film wasn't shot in 3-D, had a different director, if the characters weren't the kids from the original and Jaws 2, and if the dialogue was improved, Jaws 3 might have been better than Jaws 2 and second under the original Jaws. They had a great story line and they wasted it... However, the film is watchable if you are watching it as part of the franchise (I don't think Jaws: The Revenge is part of the franchise because of its horrible horrible horrible acting and filming) it has some decent attack sequences and a great story line, if you can get past the poor effects you might find a little enjoyment in Jaws3.
Enough attack scenes during the movie to keep your attention. The teenagers aren't annoying like most horror film teens are. The fact that they were hiding on pieces of broken boats, from a gigantic shark was eerie, I wouldn't want to be in that situation. Could have improved on itself by maybe using different characters and possibly even using the shark in a confined space like JAWS3 did (just not with the 3-D that destroyed the third film)
Even though it's more of a PG-13 type of horror, it's still effectively discomforting. This movie also proves that a good horror flick doesn't need to rely on jumpscares to because scary (I only counted 3-4 in the whole runtime) but rather a focus on the reality of death and the effects it has on those who have suffered the loss. It also uses examples of the mockery of religion to make us feel a little more tense (the use of religious objects for the occult) all in all its a fun movie with some good scares and intense scenes of demonic harassment on innocent teenagers.
