Twenty-four million years ago, the gigantic Megalodon, a 20-tonne killing machine with a 10-foot gaping bite, ruled the prehistoric oceans; but, thankfully, it became extinct. However, when the marine biologist, Cat Stone, discovers a massive shark tooth off the Mexican coast, her worst fears surface--the most menacing creature to ever rule the waters is still alive and mercilessly feeding on anything that crosses its path. Now, as the massive beast terrorises the workers during the maintenance on an underwater cable, they must hunt the fierce oceanic killer and destroy it, before there is no one left to stop it. Is there an escape from the jaws of terror? Written by Nick Riganas

Chuck Rampart: You knew and you didn't warn them?
Mr. Tolley: Calm down, Chuck. I don't know what you're talking about.
Chuck Rampart: Bullshit! It's all right here. The diving accidents. 7 men dead! Including my friend. You knew something was dangerous down there and you let them dive anyway!

I really don't think I've ever seen a film that was worse than this one. At the piece of dialogue that is commonly referred to as 'THE LINE' I actually HAD to call my friend with whom I've seen lots of movies lately. I told him what the movie was about and we watched the finale 'together', him on the phone, me doing the live reporting from behind the screen. Laughing out loud almost all the time.

I don't think there's a single one of this films atrocities left that hasn't already been commented on, but it really keeps you roaring with laughter the whole 90 minutes. Oh... maybe there is something I didn't hear anybody rant about. The marlin footage. Was that seventies? Sixties maybe? Was it even in color? And really... What was that guy having sex for? And did I really pick up the suggestion that that woman was his fathers (?) wife???
