The horror genre is a monstrous beast consisting of so many different subgenres. While trends come and go, there are certain subgenres that still stand the test of time and have a major appeal to audiences - and, much like the love shown to the slasher subgenre, there is something infinitely appealing about the shark movie subgenre.
Whether it's a case of intrigue, of fear, of awe, or just an appreciation for a well crafted movie, people seem to forever eat up shark films.
Sadly, this particular subgenre has often been bogged down by films that take the 'so bad it's good' route, and thus shark movies are easy to poke fun at - especially when you consider the likes of Sand Shark, Snow Shark, Ghost Shark, Sharktopus, Two-Headed Shark Attack, and the entire Sharknado franchise.
Seriously, all of those movies exist, and all of those movies are awful. But that's not to say that there aren't good shark films out there, and those good shark films more often than not have some truly phenomenal scares at play during their run time.
Taking a deep dive into the realm of the shark movie subgenre, then, here are some of the scariest shark offerings to swim to your screen.
