    ★★★★★

    If you've seen one shark movie, you've seen them all...

    Using the nom de plume William Snyder, it is this dismissive attitude towards the subgenre that Bruno Mattei contemplates in Jaws 5. At first glance, the title might suggest the Italian horror practice of assigning random sequel titles to piggyback on American successes as in the Zombi (Dawn of the Dead) and Casa (Evil Dead) series.
