Put on your water wings, grab a floatie, and take some deep breaths, because we’re showing “Open Water” tonight at 10:45 p.m. ET. If there is one movie to put a crimp in your super fun vacation plans to go snorkeling, it’s this tale of happy-go-lucky vacationers accidentally abandoned in shark-infested water, 15 miles from land, all because some rented boat captain can’t count. What follows for Daniel Kintner (Daniel Travis) and Susan Watkins (Blanchard Ryan) isn’t pretty, but is pretty intense. The worst part about the movie is that it’s based on a true story. That’s why we like these movies about sharks that are not at all based on reality.
Here are the five worst (or best depending on your perspective) shark movies ever:
5. “Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus”
4. “Shark Attack 3”
3. “Raging Sharks”
“Open Water” airs tonight at 11:45 PM ET; Monday, Oct. 15 at 8:00 PM ET; Monday, Oct. 15 at 11:45 PM ET; Saturday, Oct. 27 at 6:15 PM ET
