List Rules Movies must feature sharks prominently.

Water. Blood. Guts. Rows and rows and rows of teeth. This is a list of the best shark movies of all time, ranked by fans who can't get enough fins slicing through the waves. This list includes all genres of fiction as well as live-action shark films and animated shark movies. Ever since Jaws brought shark movies into the mainstream, countless other shark films have been made. Be warned though: while some shark movies may be fine for kids, most of the best shark movies might be too scary. For whatever reason (probably the Jaws franchise), the great white shark is the most popular shark species in these films. That said, other species can be found too, including bull sharks, mako sharks, and even the mythical Megalodon. Vote up the top shark films, whether they are the scariest, the most interesting, or simply the most fun.
