Films: Great White (1981)
Height/Weight: That of a regular Great White.
Summary: Of all the places bent on ripping off American films, Italy is number one. So you can understand why they thought (multiple times actually) they could ape Jaws with no consequence. Well, they succeeded, but they ultimately just chased their own tail this time. So help us if this bio ends up too similar to the actual White Death that appeared on this site earlier.
History: In Amity-er, Port Harbor, the wind surfing competition is about to happen, and everyone in town is stoked. Unfortunately, reports of shark attacks are making some people uneasy, and it comes to horrifying fruition rather quickly when the Great White crashes the race despite the efforts to keep it away. As per usual, the hunt is on.
Notable Kills: For a rip-off, there is an impressive kill in which the shark bursts though a small boat, sending the stiff-looking occupant flying several feet into the air before landing into the sea to become fish food.
Final Fate: While the shark is gnawing on one of its victims (the stand-in for Quint), one person detonates the bombs said victim was carrying, blowing its head into pieces.
Powers/Abilities: Aside from impressive strength, the shark also has great intelligence, as shown when it strategically seals some divers in a cave by stacking boulders near the entrance, sealing it shut. Too bad one had explosives.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 1.5-While its abilities are admirable, the shark is hampered by its dopey physical appearance, either as a stiff bathtub toy or a big chubby head rearing out of the water. There's a reason Spielberg kept his shark off-screen most of the time.
Trivia: -The makers of this film were successfully sued by Universal for their blatant plagiarism of Jaws, ensuring American theatres would never see it.
-Great Whites can send their prey flying into the air using a tactic that's called "breaching". It involves the shark surprising its prey by propelling itself towards it with enough force to jump up to eight feet above the surface.
