Shark Attack is a 1999 television film directed by Bob Misiorowski starring Casper Van Dien, Jenny Mcshane, and Ernie Hudson.



The movie features very few on-screen shark attacks. However, an attack on a tourist dangling her leg in the water is very realistic and in line with documented shark attacks. Instead of the shark taking off her whole leg, it takes out a large chunk of flesh, which later required surgical amputation.


Critical response[edit]

The film was panned by the critics and is now considered to be one of the worst shark movies of all time. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a cumulative score of 0%.


Three direct-to-video sequels followed Shark Attack. Shark Attack 2 was released in 2001, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon was released in 2002, and Shark Zone released in 2004. Shark Attack 2 briefly mentions the events of the first film while Shark Attack 3: Megalodon ignores the first two movies entirely.
