Steven Spielberg\'s film is generally considered one of the scariest movies ever made. The frightfest is based on the book by Peter Benchley. The plot is simple: The tourist season of a resort island is devoured by a great white shark. The ensuing "fishing trip" to catch the monstrous man-eater is filmed with power and suspense and plenty of scares that has had audiences jumping out of their seats for decades--and staying out of the water.
