Severin Films releases Italian Sharksploitation CRUEL JAWS

Severin Films have released Bruno Mattei’s insane Sharksploitation CRUEL JAWS on DVD and Blu-ray.

He defied all laws of good taste and international copyright with SHOCKING DARK and ROBOWAR. He reset the bar for batsh*t crazy ItaloHorror with RATS: NIGHT OF TERROR and HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD. And in 1995, legendary director Bruno Mattei – here as ‘William Snyder’ – stunned the civilized world with this ultimate sharksploitation saga that liberally borrows characters, plot and footage from Joe D’Amato’s DEEP BLOOD and Enzo G. Castellari’s THE LAST SHARK (and that’s just the tip of a very litigious fin). Filmed in South Florida with a cast of now-ashamed unknowns that includes a Hulk Hogan lookalike, experience “the epitome of outrageous thievery cinema” (All Movie) – actually released in some countries as JAWS 5 – now remastered uncut in HD for the first time ever and presented in two versions: The Mattei Cut AND The Snyder Cut.


Special Features:

The Snyder Cut – Unreleased Japanese Extended Cut
The Great White Way – A Study in Sharksploitation with Rebekah McKendry
These Things Got Made! – Interview with Actor Jay Colligan


CRUEL JAWS is available to buy on Severin Films website and also on Amazon
