The first time I can remember ever being scared was seeing JAWS at a drive-in theater in a packed station-wagon. I remember hiding behind the seat closing my eyes and all us kids screaming whenever the shark jumped out. I remember one part where they’re under the water beneath a boat and and all the sudden a dead guy’s face appears in a hole. That stayed with me more than the shark, at the time it was really sick! On the ride home we all pretended the station-wagon was a boat and we were being chased by JAWS.
I was watching this movie this morning and wondering if someone had a Jaws Traumafession yet. Nice to see someone did!
This movie has probably effected me more than any other film I have ever seen. I said to my boyfriend today, “If I saw this movie every day for the rest of my life, I still won’t have seen it enough times.”
It’s an absolute masterpiece.
