Jaws: The Revenge (1987)
The shark's bellow in Jaws: The Revenge was a semi-common stock roar in older movies, famously used for Spot the dragon's roar in The Munsters and in the Tom and Jerry short "The Milky Waif" (one of it's earliest appearances) where Jerry gets so mad at Tom he lets loose the bellow; not heard much today. The roar also appears in the classic giant insect B-movie The Deadly Mantis, where it may have gained notoriety. Spielberg used this roar in the original Jaws: listen carefully and you hear it as the shark sinks. He also used it in Duel when the tanker truck went off the cliff.
