Trivia

The underwater scenes showing the Tintorera are stock footage, and the shark is barely five feet long (although it is described as "the largest shark ever seen" at over seven feet long due to trick photography). See more »

How to Make a Tintorera Cocktail
28 September 2001 | by (Haddonfield, IL) – See all my reviews

Recipe: "TINTORERA JUMBLE"

Ingredients:

  • 2oz. 70s boobs and disco whore makeup




  • 3oz. badly dubbed dialogue




  • 1 jigger fake blood




  • 1 jigger sand




  • pinch of homoerotic overtones (complete with full frontal male


nudity)

  • dash of lesbian groping and dancing




  • generous portion of porno-quality negligible characters (motivation and


logic carefully removed)

Muddle ingredients with frozen clichés in semi-plotless script. Combine with overexposed film in blender, add obligatory unrelated shark documentary footage. Blend on slowest speed for 89 long minutes. Pour into daiquiri glass garnished with paper umbrella and fake shark tooth. Serve with irritating disco soundtrack and unintelligible, abrasive Caribbean accents whenever possible. Subtitles may be inserted at random and for no apparent reason.

The "Tintorera" cocktail is best enjoyed once an altered state has already been reached. Enjoy!

DISCLAIMER: This cocktail may be hazardous to your fast-forward button.
