  • HAUTE TENSION and HILLS HAVE EYES director Alexandre Aja pays homage to the films that made him fall in love with the horror genre by helming this comedic remake of director Joe Dante's 1978 JAWS parody. Lake Victoria may look peaceful, but beneath the placid waters of this painterly lake lurks a deadly menace. A powerful underwater tremor has released scores of man-eating prehistoric fish into the waters, and now it's up to a group of unlikely heroes to band together and defeat the razor-toothed predators. With time running out and the aquatic carnivores taking over, one brave heroine (Elisabeth Shue) will risk everything to save the lake and prevent her family from becoming fish food. Richard Dreyfuss, Ving Rhames, Jerry O'Connell, and Adam Scott star in the Dimension Films production.

  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's a very funny turn by Christopher Lloyd, who does piranha risk assessment for the sheriff in his best Doc BACK TO THE FUTURE style."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Ruthless and ridiculous, Aja's horror comedy has a purity of vision."
    Box Office

    "The movie should have been called JAWS GONE WILD....This MTV apocalypse delivers the goods." -- Grade: B-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[A] pitch-perfect, guilty-pleasure serving of late-summer schlock that handily nails the tongue-in-cheek spirit of the Roger Corman original."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "[S]hamelessly entertaining....Aja tips his hat to Steven Spielberg and then it's off to the low-rent races."
    Rolling Stone

    "Ah, the pleasures of unapologetic, good-natured exploitation....Aja gets the tone just right..."
