Jaws (1975)

More than a quarter-century after its release, Stephen Spielberg's smash hit is still scaring swimmers out of the water. You know the story by now: A Long Island fishing and beach community is terrorized by a huge, vengeful great white shark; resourceful town sheriff (Roy Scheider), shark specialist (Richard Dreyfuss), and grizzly fisherman (Robert Shaw) go after their prey, only to discover that they are the ones being hunted. Jaws struck fear of the ocean into countless souls, and sharks are still paying the consequences at the hands of sport fishermen worldwide.
