Default JAWS Steven Spielberg 1975

Yes,the decade of flares certainly was productive in the old classic horror movies!

Remember when you first saw JAWS?

Remember the old 'head in the hole' scare that made you jump out your pants?

Who ever thought a shark could be so terrifying?

And that cast was superb! Scheider,Dreyfuss and Shaw!

Who all loves ol' Brucie?

I don't know how many editions of Jaws I've owned over the years, Multiple VHS, Laserdisc and DVD editions, and needless to say, blu-ray when it is released. Jaws is one of those films that If I turn on the tv and it playing,no matter how far into the film, I'll sit down and watch the rest of it.

You forgot one important element there Mr Reaper Man......the music. One of the most iconic and identifiable pieces in cinema history. John Williams came up with dare I say it, such a simple piece of theme music and yet managed to make it so much more.

And of course, Jaws has the distinction of being the first blockbuster movie, taking over $100,000,000 at the U.S. boxoffice.

One of my all time fave films with an absolutely iconic poster design (the same goes for the sequel's artwork imo.) and a great teaser trailer too:

"This summer....when the beaches are open....when the water is warmer....you....will be taken....by Jaws!"

I've always liked the much missed Roy Scheider since his role in Spielberg's superior Shark shocker.

I had the misfortune of catching my first glimpse at "Jaws" when it was running on German tv in the very early 80's- just when I was about to learn swimming....
(Advice to parents: Avoid that situation at all costs!)
I'm still surprised that this is a "PG" in the UK
"Jaws" has always been a solid "FSK 16" in Germany, even in Scandinavia it's rated "15"...I guess you guys simply have the better nerves at young age

A little off topic, but what rating does Raiders Of The Lost Ark have in Germany Peter? Along with Jaws, I always found it amazing that these two films had low ratings in the UK and U.S.

Both, "Raiders" and "Temple of Doom", have an "FSK 16" rating in their uncut form (though get aired in cut down versions for a lower rating on tv regularly), "Last Crusade" and "Crystal Skull" scored the more audience-friendly "FSK 12" without cuts.
All of the "Jaws" movies are "FSK 16" over there.
Interestingly, the uncut "Jaws 3" is an "18" (!) in Finland- but that could only be the result of "Universal" being too lazy to resubmit it
