Shark Movies You Have to See Before You Die

Bait is an Australian-Singaporean movie about people who survive a freak tidal wave only to be trapped in a partially submerged grocery store, and hunted by a pack of bloodthirsty great whites. It sounds like a special breed of made-for-TV stupid, but it's a surprisingly tense ride: the crew deals with robberies, split wires throwing sparks, being trapped on store shelves without an obvious way out, and of course, plenty of close calls with carnivore monster fish. 



Reception was lukewarm. Writing for At the Movies, an Australian publication, critics Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton rated it 3.5/5 stars (would appeal to genre fans) and 2.5/5 stars (could've invested more in the characters), respectively. A sequel, Deep Water, about a plane crashing in the Pacific Ocean, was planned for release in 2014. However, it was yanked from the schedule for being too similar to the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disaster. Still, the first one holds up just well enough for a bowl of popcorn.
