Candidate # 40

(May 2010)

Another of those films that broke the mold? Steven Spielberg’s Jaws.
So, yes, Andrew Traucki’s The Reef isn’t Jaws. But it is nonetheless an intense bit of man-eating shark cinema, one of those “Based on True Events” films, like Open Water before it. (For the record, I prefer The Reef over Open Water.)
This one also sports one of those awesome actor names in Damian Walshe-Howling (who plays Luke); I haven’t heard that great an actor’s name since 28 Weeks Later gave the world the double whammy of Imogen Poots and Mackintosh Muggleton.
