* VoodooShark: The novelization of the film is the trope namer, due to it explaining that shark's attacks are caused by a voodoo priest, who has a score to settle with Michael.

"voodoo priest," and you'll have the gist of what the whole idea behind the aforementioned VoodooShark was all about.

Ignoring the events of [[Film/Jaws3D the third film]], ''The Revenge'' follows Ellen Brody, who finds out that there's [[ThreateningShark a shark attacking people]], and shockingly, [[VoodooShark it]] seems to be specifically targeting the members of her family.

* FocusGroupEnding: [[spoiler:The original theatrical ending had Jake be eaten by the shark and the shark killed by impalement on the boat's prow. However, test audiences were very disturbed by Jake's death, so he (somehow) survives. They also changed the shark's death to [[MadeOfExplodium massively exploding for no reason whatsoever when it's impaled.]] The former is ridiculous, but WordOfGod has it that while the studio demanded changes, they didn't give production appropriate money to re-shoot. (The original intent was the shark to be impaled, die and sink -- taking much of the boat with it. FWIW, that's the ending that appeared on video.)]]

** Plus, the laughing at the fun is due to the happy flashback she's having.

* RevisedEnding: The original ending showed the shark simply being impaled on the boat and dying. Test audiences disliked this, so the filmmakers reshot the finale with the shark exploding as he's impaled; Jake, who dies in the original version, also somehow survived in the retakes. Television cuts typically use the original ending, while the revised version's available on DVD and video releases.

* MoodSwinger: Ellen goes through this after her son's death, swinging wildly through emotions from intense angry paranoia to giddiness, to uncontrollable sobbing to distant depression. She even displays emotions in odd settings, such as laughing happily at Sean's funeral, then bawling when her granddaughter wants her to play with her. TruthInTelevision, as all of this, including the unusual timing, isn't uncommon when coping with grief.

* IdiotBall: A great white shows up in the Bahamas and Michael (a) doesn't report it to the proper authorities, thus endangering God knows how many people, including his own daughter and (b) doesn't even consider that his mother's crazy theory might actually be true, especially considering that great whites are very rare in the Bahamas, and thus think to keep ''himself'' safe by staying out of the water?

** Jake decides to take the research money they've been given to study snails to drop that completely so he can study the shark instead. What's more he also goads Michael into going into this with him, despite the fact that Michael is still grieving for his younger brother who ''was just killed by a shark.''
