Jaws is the perfect symbol of everything that is terrifying about the ocean. Like space, there is an incredible mysteriousness about the ocean. Since we haven’t the technology to observe or explore its entire expanse, there is a great abundance of gray area (undiscovered species and the like). The iconic and eponymous giant shark from Steven Spielberg’s least forgettable (and least expensive) aquatic thriller franchise brings all the fear that lies in the unknown to a single, image. Anyone who isn’t just a little scared of swimming out too far at the beach as never seen this movie in their formative years.
