Very good Jaws cash-in.
18 February 1999 | by (Baytown, Texas) – See all my reviews

I have seen my fair share of Jaws rip offs and this one sure did meet my expectations. The plot is basically the same as Up From The Depths (1979), and the music is REALLY good. The sfx are well done for a film as low budget as this and is better viewing than Tentacles (1977).
