“Good g-reef”

Films: The Reef (2010)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Ocean

Height/Weight: That of an average great white.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: You all remember that one film that came out in the 2000s? It was called "Open Water", and it dealt with the utterly terrifying prospect of being stranded in the middle of the ocean as several sharks take an interest. The good news here is that land is in sight, and there's just one shark. The bad news is that it's a great white.

History: While on a course to Indonesia, a bunch of friends end up with their boat going under after it hits a reef, forcing them to try and swim to the faraway land. The problem is that they're low on energy, and there’s a great white that will simply not leave them alone. Only time will tell if any of them make it.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: In the end, only one of the group manages to escape the jaws of the shark. Everyone else ends up dead. While the survivor is eventually rescued, the shark is still out there.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Part of what makes this particular shark so effective is that it's for the most part VERY MUCH REAL! Yes, someone actually got some divers to be next to a circling great white, and while we're sure those were trained stunt doubles, it does truly look like these folks are sharing space with the apex predator of the seas. And do you really want to be floating aimlessly in the ocean to begin with? We didn't think so.

Trivia: -This film was based on an actual incident involving sharks and desertion after a sunken boat in 1983. The differences were that the sole survivor was a guy, and the identified killer was a tiger shark or more.

-Many were concerned that this film would hurt the Australian tourism industry, seeing how similar films like "Open Water" did just that. Whether their fears were founded or not is up to you.

It's awesome! Just check out how this guy's reacting!

For a nibble...and then a BITE.

Right past Shark-Head Arch.

Eh, it's just a Sand Tiger Shark. Swim somewhere else.

If he wasn't blind, that is.

Don't make me choose.

You are also without a lifejacket. You're welcome.

Can we EVER get it right?!

This vacation sucks beyond measure.

"Can I join in the group huddle?"
What about everyone else, you jackass?!

Drunken ship accidents are no laughing matter.
