** The attack on Thea. Imagine witnessing something like that and being far away, unable to help your child.



* InfantImmortality: Thea survives her encounter with the shark.



* SuperPersistentPredator: The shark somehow follows Ellen from New England to the Bahamas - in a matter of days. It practically stalks Michael, almost getting him, and when that doesn't work, it goes after Thea.

* AdultFear: The scene where Michael is chased by the shark. Probably the worst fear of every scuba diver out there.



* ChildrenAreInnocent: Thea asks if Sean will ever come back.



* 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?



* ItsAlwaysMardiGrasInNewOrleans: We're in the Bahamas, so of course, Hoagie takes Ellen to a Junkanoo festival. As it turns out, this tropes is justified as it ''is'' the time of the year--the Christmas/New Years--when this festival is held.

* NightmareFuel: Come on guys, let's face it. Even this piece of sh*t of a film has it's moments. For example, just forgive how Mitchell Anderson is [[SpecialEffectFailure embarrassingly obviously hiding his arm under his jacket]] and think about his character Sean Brody's situation.
** [[spoiler:Just on your boat, doing your job, when suddenly [[ThreateningShark some unknown menace]] emerges from the depths, latches onto you, and starts violently pulling your arm. For some reason, it's [[SpecialEffectFailure bloody even before it happens]] but who cares!? You manage to stay on the boat, but realize your flippin' arm is gone! [[AndIMustScream You try to scream for help]], but unfortunately your very far out and everyone is busy [[HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday Christmas caroling]] so no one can hear you. So the beast returns, and your efforts to keep yourself in the safety of your boat are futile as it effortlessly drags you into the water. Keep screaming all you want for the remainder of your time above water, because it proceeds to pull you down and finish you off.]]

* 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.)]]
