Twenty-four million years ago, Megalodon was a 20 tonne killing machine with a 10 foot gaping bite. When two researchers discover a colossal shark's tooth off the Mexican coast their worst fears surface - the most menacing beast to ever rule the waters is still alive and mercilessly feeding on anything that crosses its path. Now they must hunt the fierce killer and destroy it... before there is no one left to stop its reign of terror! Written by Anonymous

Trivia

This movie got a lot of recognition after a clip from it showing the shark attacking a yacht went viral. That and a few other scenes have become popular Internet memes due to their bizarre dialogue and poor special effects. See more »

Goofs

When the megalodon is attacking the yacht and the party goers are jumping off, some make it to a huge inflatable safety raft. Off to the right of the safety raft you can see a visible yellow line stretching out from it used to keep the raft in position so it does not drift away. See more »

Deserving of a cult following
2 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shark Attack 3 is truly an awful movie, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't grab some friends and popcorn and spend your evening watching it. It is so awful, the acting so campy, the special effects so cheesy, the dialog so terrible and the plot so contrived from Jaws that this movie is a must see. The sharks are nothing more than stock footage (and how does stock footage eat people? you ask...oh, you'll see!), the Mexican actors are, in actuality, Russian/Bulgarian, and there are some truly unforgettable scenes. Not to mention a rather dirty pick-up line...

I've seen some bad movies in my day, but I must admit that Shark Attack 3 truly takes the cake. Go check it out yourself. (But avoid Shark Attacks 1 and 2, they're reportedly decent.)

PS I changed the ten to a one since a lot of SA3 'fans' want it in the Bottom 100. I agree.
