Film: The Last Shark
The Last Shark (Italian title: L'ultimo squalo) is an Italian horror film "influenced by" Jaws.

This film contains examples of:

  • Ashes to Crashes: Ron's corpse is fed to the shark, because Peter knows the shark will be killed by what's inside of Ron.
  • California Doubling: Some Italian movies set in America were actually entirely filmed there (such as Impatto mortale and Thunder); this one was shot in Georgia... and Malta.
  • Dolled-Up Installment: The film was released in Spain, Brazil and Japan as a part of the Jaws series. Which is one of several reasons why Universal took the film's American distributors to court in a (successful) bid to have it pulled from cinemas.
  • The Last Title: The title in both languages.
  • Stock Footage: When not portrayed by an animatronic, the shark is represented by documentary footage.
  • Threatening Shark: Both has one as an antagonistic force in-universe and was viciously attacked by them in Real Life.
