We play with the sub-genre off and on a lot, but Movie Night No. 11 is officially When Animals Attack night. That’s the theme and we’re sticking with it. And we’re going basic this time, with nothing terribly exotic like killer krill or lethal ladybugs. No, it’s time for a good old fashioned killer shark movie. It’s The Last Shark otherwise known as Great White otherwise known as the film that was so close to Jaws it got itself sued.
No, seriously…apparently Universal handed this Italian film its ass, got it blocked from North American release and it’s never seen an official Region 1 release…of any kind. So it has some appeal in that standpoint as well. And that explains the subtitles on this one…but since this is so rare and weird that I hadn’t heard of it until I went poking around…I’ll allow it.
