Shark week: Movies that will make you avoid the water forever

Breakaway Magazine

Before we dive right in, here are a few fun facts about sharks….

  • Sharks can use heartbeats to track their prey.
  • Sharks help keep the populations of smaller fish in check.
  • The average shark has 40-45 teeth and can have up to seven rows of replacement teeth. Because sharks lose a lot of teeth and grow them back quickly, they often go through more than 30,000 teeth in a lifetime.
  • Some South Pacific islanders considered sharks to be gods and offered human sacrifices to them until as recently as the nineteenth century.

OK, let’s slide right in…


That just got really dark… I’m sorry!

The Shallows

A mere 200 yards from shore, surfer Nancy (Blake Lively) is attacked by a great white shark, with her short journey to safety becoming the ultimate contest of wills.

47 Meters Down

The Meg

This movie sees Jason Statham fighting a two-million-year-old megaladon!

Open Water

This movie was limited on its scenic views; it takes place right out in the middle of the ocean. After watching this movie, you will have a minor fear of doing water activities when on vacation.

Finding Nemo

Nemo’s sweet dad, comes across some a group of sharks that are recovering carnivores, and were turning a new leaf at becoming vegetarian. Well kinda.. 🙂



This movie is so cheesy and horrible, it’s actually a good time!


It’s like a train wreck, but you just can’t look away.. The horrid acting and unlimited supplies of sharks being thrown around make this EPIC!

Deep Blue Sea

With Samuel L Jackson, Thomas Jane and LL Cool J; this takes place at a scientific research lab that is out in the middle of the ocean: Where they are using Sharks for a possible cure for Alzheimer and lets just say, it all goes to hell in a handbasket!

Of course what other classic shark film would top our list other then Spielberg’s Jaws! Anytime the word SHARK is spoken/thought of, this movie is the first to come to mind.

Who can forget one of the most famous lines from it:
