Top 40 Shitty Shark Movies

Mike Matei / August 6th, 2013

In time for Shark week, Cinemassacre literally dives into a pile of B-movies to bring up the best of the worst shark movies ever made.

If you’re having trouble loading the video, here’s an alternate link.

    Awesome !!!!

  • Linkinho

    August 6, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    I have a fishy feeling about those movies

    • Gloating Demon

      August 6, 2013 at 11:53 pm

      Guess with some of these we just took the bait…

      • Dur

        August 7, 2013 at 1:47 pm

        Yeah, they were definitely just trolling us..

      • August 7, 2013 at 7:29 pm

        I thought these movies were great, whatever floats your boat though.

      • Lozzo

        August 7, 2013 at 11:35 pm

        Yes the scales were definitely not in our favor.

      • demis_denton

        August 8, 2013 at 3:51 am

        I know how you are all feeling!
        Can’t wait to sink my teeth into some of these movies.

      • Therm0ptic

        August 8, 2013 at 3:05 pm

        Yeah, really. A wave of shark movie nostalgia just came over me.

      • Isaiah Gibson

        August 9, 2013 at 12:48 am


        Joke’s on you, sharks don’t have scales.

      • Shawn

        August 23, 2013 at 2:20 am

        @Isaiah Gibson

        Sharks do have scales called placoids – It’s porpoise is protection and some.

      • frakballz

        August 7, 2013 at 7:35 pm

        Yeah, we were definitely hooked on these movies.

      • Sheeyah

        It casts a big shadow.

    • e_honda_civic

      August 8, 2013 at 7:52 pm

      I thought all these movies sucked fucking ass!…fish.

      really because i’ve got a sqwidy feeling about it

    I like how I was just telling my brother I cant wait for top 40 shark movies, and what do you know ,10 seconds later, its in the latest videos – Thanks James.

  • Jordan Indehar

    August 6, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    YES, YES, YES! I knew Sharktapus had to be on here!

  • Joker83

    August 6, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    I could not stop laughing! That was so funny, hilarious video. As a Shark Movie fan, I definitely was impressed with your list. And the video was hysterical i seriously could not stop laughing.

  • binaryfruit

    August 6, 2013 at 11:05 pm

    Oh my god, I thought he was kidding.

  • Allen Lucas

    August 6, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Now I’m going to be Quint and hunt down the net for all these films. Jaws 2-4 are probably the only ones I would own. It’s better to buy those sequels than buy all the other craps! The parts with you in the opening and the DVD opening scene are the best parts. Then again, the “best” moments from those movies do take the cake!

  • David

    August 6, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    As always great job James. Laughed my ass off. I laughed even harder when I saw the yellow lock wich means you got your movie from your local Blockbuster Store (which is probably closed now) I used to work there for a few years and remember those yellow bastards very well.

  • Infinite

    August 6, 2013 at 11:36 pm

    Hahaha! That box for Hammerhead still had the security bar in it. Where’d you get that copy? I’d rethink my sources. :p

  • Tenkage

    August 6, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    Thats a lot of fish

  • August 6, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    number 2 I have to fuckin see

  • August 6, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    Epic James. Simply epic.

  • August 6, 2013 at 11:51 pm

    for some reason the video just wont play. it stops loading and just sits there on the play icon screen

    Another great video, but Deep Blue Sea was actually quite good.

  • Norteno del Sur

    August 7, 2013 at 12:15 am

    The girl of the 9th movie looks like the “actress” from “Plumbers don’t wear ties”.

  • August 7, 2013 at 12:16 am

    hey how long did this take to load for you guys.

  • August 7, 2013 at 12:38 am

    Two word review: “Shit Sandwich”

  • erik37

    August 7, 2013 at 12:40 am

    Dude fucking awesome, im trying to think more to say but cant say anything worth while more that fucking awesome!!!!!!!!

  • August 7, 2013 at 12:55 am

    Deep Blue Sea shouldn’t be on this list even though they ate Samuel “Goddamn” Jackson.

  • greedo

    August 7, 2013 at 12:58 am

    I’ve been experiencing the same problems, myself. I had to hit play 3 times before it work. And even then, I think I had to refresh the browser.

    • erik37

      August 7, 2013 at 1:05 am

      maybe its just to many people watching jersey shore shark attack at once greedo lol

  • CharlieBrownGhostAss

    August 7, 2013 at 1:07 am

    The Sharks Has Hit The Fan!

  • Arthur Cavazos

    August 7, 2013 at 1:15 am

    Wonder if James has every seen the Hulk Comic were hulk fights Giant Gamma Sharks, I seen pics of this look up Hulk Sharks, and awsome list, hope you do The Top 40 Best Shark Movies

  • Starry

    August 7, 2013 at 1:43 am

    LOL James you crack me up when you’re being silly πŸ™‚

  • Travis Statford

    August 7, 2013 at 1:48 am

    Best shark scene I’ve ever seen was in zombi 2. Where shark fights Zombie. There we go!! Another idea for a shark movie. Zombies vs Sharks.

  • Seriphos

    August 7, 2013 at 1:53 am

    Was that Goonies 2? Perhaps a hint at the next AVGN.

  • top

    August 7, 2013 at 1:58 am

    hahahaha holy shit this is amazing

  • August 7, 2013 at 1:58 am

    If these shitty movies prove anything it’s that CGI must be abolished. Oh, and any movie to do with sharks should be too.

  • August 7, 2013 at 2:09 am

    I didn’t think shark night wasn’t that bad,i liked it

  • August 7, 2013 at 2:12 am

    This is just hilarious as hell.

  • Boo Daclown

    August 7, 2013 at 2:17 am

    Im bored i wana play some fucking board games

  • frostare

    August 7, 2013 at 2:19 am

    Curiously, the Latin American name for Jaws is TiburΓ³n which translates to “Shark”.

  • Henry

    August 7, 2013 at 2:21 am

    OMG PLEASE JAMES, post the shark movie list so i can find them!!!

  • Harley Jackson

    August 7, 2013 at 2:30 am

    That crazy ass laugh at 00:40 is like, the best thing ever today, and the day just started an hour and a half ago! I replayed it too many times to count.

  • timbo92203

    August 7, 2013 at 2:31 am

    Really enjoying the movie reviews.
    Can’t wait for Monster Madness 2013!!!

  • August 7, 2013 at 2:44 am

    cool. very cool. now review Street Sharks next.

  • August 7, 2013 at 2:58 am

    James, did you really not know how to open that style of DVD case, or was it all for comedic effect? Wtf am I talking about. Sorry James, I’ve been running on only 2 hours of sleep for the last several days.

  • Stylix

    August 7, 2013 at 2:59 am

    Looks like the only idea that hasn’t been done is Sharks in Space which I find surprising, especially during that whole ‘in space’ sequel kick was popular.

    Then again I can’t say I know my shake movies so maybe there is one, though I would have expected to see that make this big list.

  • Harley Jackson

    August 7, 2013 at 3:08 am

    Speaking of “Shark Attack,” are there gonna be any more Board James episodes, or was “Dream Phone” like the series finale? Because there are SO many other great board games you guys haven’t done yet!

  • August 7, 2013 at 3:11 am

    well, there is a Jurassic Park/Jaws hybrid story called Meg. since Jurassic Park was an island theme park with dinosaurs, Meg would be it’s aquatic offspring with prehistoric sea creatures in an aquarium. at one point, Meg was going to be made into a film, but at this point is most likely in development hell.

  • frostare

    August 7, 2013 at 3:22 am

    I’m so glad Sharktopus and Deep Blue Sea made it in, which begs the question, what other shark movies are left out?

    • otto meyer III

      August 8, 2013 at 5:04 pm

      One that is missing that I know of is The Last Shark. An Italian, I think, rip off of Jaws & Jaws 2 starring the late Vic Murrow. Paramount or Universal sued successfully and had the movie yanked from cinemas.

  • Sephit

    August 7, 2013 at 3:39 am

    It’s funny because you mentioned “Sharks in a fuckin bath tub!” Well just watched the trailer for Ghost Shark and there’s one in a bath tub!

    Also it’s an homage or rip off of the original Nightmare bath tub scene.

  • August 7, 2013 at 3:52 am

    Sir this was the best list youve done in a log time! loved it!!

  • August 7, 2013 at 4:12 am

    do I need to download something to watch the vids?coz they aint working for me

  • Orionsaint

    August 7, 2013 at 4:31 am

    James, It’s funny when you said, Shark attack in a bathtub. Because the upcoming movie, Ghost Shark, has just that, haha!

  • August 7, 2013 at 5:25 am

    How the hell those shit flicks get their funding ?
    It is absolutely horrible.

  • August 7, 2013 at 5:42 am

    In the movie Ghost shark the shark kills some one on a slip in slide and a bathtub

  • dicnar

    August 7, 2013 at 6:09 am

    i think that indian JAws aka “Aatank” (1995) deserves a spot πŸ˜€

  • August 7, 2013 at 6:25 am


  • Arboris Clover

    August 7, 2013 at 6:53 am

    I do wonder, did you watch ALL of them from beginning to end? πŸ™‚ Or do you skip through it, and watch it if it seems worthwhile.

  • August 7, 2013 at 7:20 am

    My god most of these movies were mst3k worthy.

  • August 7, 2013 at 8:03 am

    Wait a sec, the movie’s called “Super Shark” WHERE THE F IS THE SHARKS CAPE/POWRERS?!

  • August 7, 2013 at 8:11 am

    i’m partial to the shitty shark movies on Syfy channel.. like Sharknado, Sharkopus and Gatorshark, Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus and Dinoshark.. films so shitty that their funny. oh and the shark movie “Ghost Shark” is coming out on Syfy channel in few weeks too

  • Traditionalfire

    August 7, 2013 at 8:55 am

    The list was good but James barley explained why the movies sucked and some of the clips shown diden’t really help with that ethier.

  • MonkeeJuice

    August 7, 2013 at 9:04 am

    There is a scene is Shark Attack 3 where a guy randomly says “What Do You Say I Take You Home And Eat Your Pussy?”

  • sZachr

    August 7, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Regarding Hammerhead — I’m sure it’s already been said, but that looks like it was purchased as previously viewed from Blockbuster. They locked all their movies with those shitty little yellow sticks. Some asshole must’ve forgotten to remove it when you bought it.

  • Mattashell

    August 7, 2013 at 10:17 am

    Are the people in “Sand Shark” trying to be eaten?

  • Snejku

    August 7, 2013 at 10:27 am

    This was incredible!

  • August 7, 2013 at 10:37 am

    Damn hope you dident watch all those movies,

  • mitchman

    August 7, 2013 at 11:03 am

    James, please give us an updated tour of the basement since you remodeled. we’d love to see it!

  • August 7, 2013 at 11:24 am

    In Soviet Russia, Sharks jump you! I got out my favorite shark plushie for this. I now want to watch my VHS copy of JAWS for some reason. I wonder why.

  • thatrandomperson

    August 7, 2013 at 11:33 am

    That was awesome. I particularly liked the Jersey Shore Shark. That should really happen. I’d be happy if that does.

  • BladeRunner

    August 7, 2013 at 11:44 am

    awesome list, I wonder how many shitty shark movies have actually been made? I didn’t even know half of these existed. Your the best Nerd.

    August 7, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Holy shit man! You just totally “Owned” Shark Week. I love this video! I laughed my ass off.

    I would probably love every movie in your list xD

  • Gioeli76

    August 7, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    I’m surprised you didn’t use the titanic movie that had an evil shark gang in it.

    August 7, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    This is HILARIOUS! James you’re awesome!

  • August 7, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    I loved the Chappelle’s Show clip.

  • darxide

    August 7, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    Come on, James. You know you want to recreate the original Jaws using nothing but scenes from these 40 shitty movies. And you know we wanna see it.

  • austin castle

    August 7, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    how did know that sharknado was going to be on this list? :/

  • August 7, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    I’ve never wanted to waste more oxygen in my whole life, thank you.

  • Smeghead420

    August 7, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    (sigh) This was painful to watch. Never knew there were SO many shitty shark movies. Excellent job James, as always.

  • Squall85

    August 7, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    I literally laughed out loud when the shark jumped to catch the plane. Most of the time I was holding my head thinking who was that idiot who invested time and money on these movies?!…

  • johnpseudo

    August 7, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    How about making a new shitty Shark movie by cutting all the worst scenes from all this movie together and call it “Shitty Sharkorama” ? I`d buy it … just so I don`t have to watch all those shitty srak flics.

  • Villageman

    August 7, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Shark boobies shark boobies shark boobies shark boobies shark boobies

  • August 7, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    I was looking forward to your wiew on “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou”, It’s ot bad though, It’s awsome!

  • August 7, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Awesome video! However, goblin sharks are not pre-historic πŸ™‚

  • August 7, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    I don’t think I could watch 40 Shark movies, let alone 40 shitty ones…

  • Zach Bremer

    August 7, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    The only thing about the shitty movies are the boobs.

  • Zach Bremer

    August 7, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    the only good thing* sorry

  • Thomas Beavers

    August 7, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    That shark can fucking roar!

  • August 7, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Still my favorite Jaws ripoff has to be Orca, which I believe starts with an orca eating a great white.

  • August 7, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Movie Goof – Glasses fall off his face when the pile of movies fall ontop him. When he removes them from his face, glasses are back on. πŸ™‚

  • August 7, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    That was a WW2 Sherman… WITH LEGS. Fucking excellent.

  • punksterdaddy

    August 7, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    I’m not kidding there is a shitty shark movie on right now as I type this.
    It stars Tara Reid and it is called “Sharknado,”
    The plot is… A tornado picks up sharks from the sea and begins twisting onto land. It is soooo stupid, it’s funny but it is played as serious!
    Well anyway, good idea for a video James and I removed adblocker for Cinemassacre too.
    Man I was just about done typing when I saw you had it in your list at number five! Yeah it is on SyFy UK and it sucks or rather bites.

  • Daniel Holst

    August 7, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    I would recommend “Santa claus vs Megasharkosarus” Yeah it is real im not kidding, xD

  • henotalkie

    August 7, 2013 at 6:15 pm

    You should have waited two years so you could put Jaws 19 on the list.

  • Groudon199

    August 7, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    Why are some of the clips stretched?

  • taykel

    August 7, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Amazing! The opening was crazy and the part where you try to open up that DVD case was hysterical. These movies do look shitty I can tell you that. I hope you do another top list like that. I really enjoyed it!

  • August 7, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    Number 9 Sand Sharks starring…..Brooke Hogan..!? o_O

  • Albylion

    August 7, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    @binaryfruit, I also thought it was a joke. Awesome to see a follow through.

  • wormwood

    August 7, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    lol i like how at 00:27 he says “Sho many sark movies!!!”

  • LicaWolf

    August 7, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    I’m laughing so hard. Where the hell are all these movies coming from xD

    The intro was hilarious too, also the pause to try to open the DVD case (I wasn’t expecting that :P). I was hoping Sharknado would be on the list and it was! perfect!

  • Kraelich

    August 7, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    Hilarious! Your best video in a while.

  • August 7, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    I know soooooooooooooooo many shark movies I can just tell which ones he’s gonna put out next.

  • Gabriel Santiago

    August 7, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    All we need now is Zombie Sharks!

  • August 7, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    SAND SHARKS!!!!!!!!!!!111

  • August 7, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    I always thought as a posibility that they made so many shark movies as if some great masterplan is hapening in the movie world regarding so many nasty bites of shark movies.Maybe they up to something,something really big like maybe they want to go on the guiness records or something i don’t know,just make your own thoughts.And the other anoying part is that exept the fact that they dishonor the original jaws really bad,they show it really easy for everyone to take just an after efect and starting to shoot their own shity production.they also take to seriously the movies if you can call them that way,and make them at leas try to make them seem like an adventure.They must make a scary movie sequel regarding shark movies,at least that would be a comedy.

  • clovernuts

    August 7, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    That last one is so terrible! Lolz

  • Dore

    August 7, 2013 at 10:16 pm

    Some of these are so bad they look like 1st year student films. The Snow Shark one is HORRIBLE looking, and I’ve seen better CG on early 80’s sci-fi shows than these turdbombs!

    Thanks for a kick ass list, though.

  • ikensee

    August 7, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    OMG he put Snow Shark in there! I think I know someone who knows the person that made it and he was marketing it on Facebook. I loved this video!

  • JulietteOliver

    August 8, 2013 at 12:01 am

    I was hoping you’d use 2008’s Marina Monster as your #1 as it’s not only the worst shark movie I’ve ever seen BY FAR, but might be one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen put to DVD. It’s that bad.

    August 8, 2013 at 4:18 am

    The sad part is that there are about 500 more shitty shark movies ….
    Make’s you wonder …. if we have any future left .

  • Michael Fetterman

    August 8, 2013 at 5:27 am

    There are still good shark movies, like Open Water. The main plot is being stranded in water, but there’s still plenty of sharks. Go check it out if you haven’t already James.

  • Connor Bateman

    August 8, 2013 at 8:27 am

  • August 8, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    But does it have Sharknado in it?

  • August 8, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Sharktopus ftw

  • Extra

    August 8, 2013 at 5:47 pm

    Is there another movie Like hammer head out there? because I have a vague memory of a human shark hybrid hopping onto a torch lit dock as if it had been summoned there, everything I can remember about the shark matches hammerhead except it had
    less to no CGI it was just I guy in a human shark hybrid suit.

  • Ace

    August 8, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Feel sorry for the sharks in #2 as eating that many guidos will surely be high in cholesterol.

  • nammm3

    August 8, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    LOL! That was an amazing list James! I couldn’t believe a movie like #2 existed, friggin Jersey Shore.

  • August 8, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    #33. That is a real death scene. That actor died on set by that shark. That’s his real blood and guts.

    Very nice! I was surprised to not see Tintorera on your list. I’m curious how the Ghost Shark movie is going to turn out, it’s at least an unique take on the shark genre.

    Speaking about cutting scenes together from different movies to make a new film. I have heard that, that actually happened in Sweden. Between 1949-1969 there were a lot of comedy films with the character Γ…sa-Nisse produced. One of the movies consisted just of scenes from other Γ…sa-Nisse movies.

    Hey James, a fun fact, did you know that the movie Sharktopus was filmed in Puerto Vallarta, but the actuall fun fact is that the scene where the sharktopus eats the man that is swinging in a rope above the river, actually those river scenes were filmed in a restaurant, and the main attraction of the restaurant its that its a location from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Predator movie (the scene from the begining when they fight with the rebels and save the girl) actually the rests of the chopper that explodes its still there.

    And the Sad Thing is… I’ve probably watched ALL of these shitty shark movies (plus more than a few others not mentioned). Heck, even own a few! I am mixed on the subject, because as much as I LURV a Good Shark Flick, as an Advocate for Sharks, I feel kind of guilty watching them. Still they ARE one of my Favourite Animals, so Thanks James for doing one of your Quality Pieces on them (If if they ARE the Bad Guy).

    Although, I feel it should have been broken up over the Span of the entire week, and had a little more description per movie. But none the less, a fun way to spin James’ style interests for Shark Week !!

    1.) This is the greatest list in the history of mankind. I only own Red Water and the Jaws sequels, but I’ve seen and loved Dinoshark, Sharktopus and Sharknado and intended to purchase all the rest of the movies on this list.
    2.) I know you probably get these types of comments all the time, but I gotta ask. Are we going to get anymore Audio Slaughters? Those first four were fucking awesome, I love all the backstory and the in-depth information. You turned me onto Black Sabbath with that podcast, not to mention helped me in my already going process of getting into Zeppelin and Zombie. I understand if the baby is keeping you from doing it, but maaaan I really want another one.

    Good Top 40, but you’ve forgotten “Great White” aka “The Last Jaws” (in Germany with the subtitle “Der weiße Killer”), a shameless Itialian Jaws-Rip-Off from 1982 with absurd special effects (known from “The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made”)!

    I actually worked on Shark Swarm (#24) as an electrician. I was hoping it would be in this list. We shot it mostly up in Fort Bragg California where they filmed Overboard. It was a two part mini-series hence the 3 hour running time. Took 48 days to film. If anyone actually watches it, the blue Jeep driven by Daryl Hannah’s character was my ride while I was living out there. I got free gas for the duration of the shoot for letting the production use it.

    Deep Blue Sea was quite good and i would put it there with the overglorified Jaws in the 2nd place on the first list.

    And i have to correct you. The Jersey shore chracters are NOT exagarated. That was a realistic depiction.

    It was good to see Shark here, as I own that movie. I’m surprised to learn it predated Jaws, but I’m more surprised that you didn’t mention them stabbing an actual shark on film! Not to mention, I heard that someone was attacked and possibly killed by a shark during filming! Oh, and it’s barely about sharks and barely features any sharks, haha.

    James, you mentioned how there would be a shark in a bathtub movie (as a joke obviously), but I think there is one. I remember seeing it many, many years ago on Nickelodeon after watching an episode of “You Can’t Do That On Television”. It was about Jaws popping up in peoples tubs and eating them. The title was something like Jaws 7000 or something, I wish I could remember.

    Jaws got plenty of things wrong. For example, sharks do NOT attack people unless they flop around like a seal. Also, they do not hold grudges against people, nor do they roar. And, if a shark does attack you, just hit it on the nose so hard it becomes dazed and confused. The nose of a shark is really sensitive, so hitting it will allow you to get away.

Universal Pictures filed a suit against the producers and the film was pulled from theaters in the U.S and Australia. The scene where the 35 foot Great White Shark takes down a helicopter is hilarious. I saw this movie as a little kid and I own it uncut on DVD. Keep up the exellent work James πŸ™‚
