A Disturbing Documentary
14 September 2003 | by (Around) – See all my reviews

This is probably THE most disturbing Documentary ever made as we learn exactly what happens when a Shark bites -- using models and experiments to re-create several 'caught on tape' shark attacks. Usually, with the victims in the SAME ROOM as they have a mechanical shark mock-up biting into a simulated human leg (all designed to reflect life). You can see the Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome in their eyes as they watch their accidents re-created. Informative and Interesting, this documentary is not for the faint of heart--for at the end they show, in it's entirety, the first shark-bite caught on film underwater--which allowed scientists to run all of the experiments.
