Spooktober 2020: Horror Hunt
Film No. 16/31
Jaws is undoubtedly one of the most influential and successful Spielberg's classics that explored fear in an undeniably great depths. The "mechanical shark" still looks exceptionally real and terrifying, even by today's standards. It builds up tension really well using impressive underwater shots and an amazing score.
Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw did a solid job in the acting department. The drinking scene between the three of them in the middle of the ocean is probably my favorite part. They played out their characters really well, especially Robert Shaw. I feel bad after his character's death because he was so badass.
Overall, Jaws is a certified classic blockbuster that deseved the recognition it got. It spawned sequels and various copycats which I wouldn't be watching anytime soon.
