Film: Dark Tide

Dark Tide is a 2012 drama-thriller featuring Halle Berry. It is directed by John Stockwell, who previously directed Into The Blue.

In the film, a professional diver tutor returns to deep waters after nine years, after an almost fatal encounter with a great white shark. The nightmare from the deep is still lurking, more carnivorous and hungry than ever.

The film features the following tropes:

  • Stock Footage: The shark effects are a combination of live shark footage, animatronic effects and computer generated imagery.
  • Threatening Shark: The film tries to avert this, but at least four people are attacked and/or eaten by sharks throughout the movie, including one unlucky son of a bitch that's caught by a breaching great white.
