Jaws ★★★★½

Hollywood's prodigy Spielberg brought us the crown jewel of animal horror with his first summer blockbuster, which literally burned into people's brains and taught them a panicked fear of sharks. This phenomenal effect was possible because the director masterfully managed to manipulate and frighten the audience with suggestive underwater camera rides, in conjunction with John Williams' unique musical theme. "Jaws" is a study of human primal fears, a parable on the struggle between man and beast and together with "The Exorcist" a starting signal for the trick-technically elaborately staged and seemingly realistic modern horror. If the relentless eating machine bites, it is still as impressive today as it was in 1975. A milestone.
