The water in the tank where the climax was shot was filled with blue dye, which turned Sir Michael Caine's and Lorraine Gary's hair blue. See more »
Amity, a New York island, is approximately 1,250 miles from the Bahamas. It would be impossible for the shark to swim such a distance in less than three days. See more »

Since time immemorial, events have taken place with no evident reason for their happening. Such phenomena has been man's dilemma and the subject of constant philosophical discussion. When there is no factor motivating an event, no case of cause creating effect, what triggered the action: fate or circumstance? What you are about to see concerns such an event. Maybe you can determine whether we are dealing here, with circumstances, or fate.

Some British TV screenings have featured much un-doctored footage of the shark where you can see the machinery driving it. A six by three foot hole in the shark's stomach is clearly visible during the submersible attack and almost every shot in the following chase shows the machine protruding from under the shark. This is in large part due to the fact that the film was shot in 4:3 and matted for widescreen for theatrical exhibition, meaning that viewers were able to see the full picture, including areas that the filmmakers didn't want you to see!

It's personal because I hate this audience-insulting movie. This has got to be the stupidest horror flick of all times. The ending (all of them) alone would be enough to justify this film's place on the bottom 100 list. I mean the premise (shark is after the Brody family for revenge. It chases (and beats) the Brody's to Jamaica to harrass them and snack on a few extras).
The effects went WAY downhill for this one. The shark on the Universial Studios tram tour is more convincing then this duct-taped-at-the-seams roboshark. The acting is atrocious (especially Mario Van Peeble and his grating "hey mon" accent)
