Earl Bassett, now a washed-up ex-celebrity, is hired by a Mexican oil company to eradicate a Graboid epidemic that's killing more people each day. However, the humans aren't the only one with a new battle plan.
A businessman sinks $200 million into a special project to help fight Alzheimer's disease. As part of this project, medical biologist Susan McAlester rather naughtily figures out a way to genetically enlarge shark brains, so that disease-battling enzymes can be harvested.

SPOILER:In US TV versions, several of the death scenes are edited and cut for content. This includes the death of Russel Franklin (Samuel L. Jackson) and Tom "Scoggs" Scoggins (Michael Rapaport).

Scoggs body, for instance, is torn apart into several pieces, with blood and gore splattering everywhere. Most American TV versions show the characters being attacked by the sharks and then cut to the scene See more »
