I know what you are thinking, Jaws as a horror or Halloween movie? Really?
It's listed as one of the top horror movies of all time. Truly!
Think about it...gore, suspense...it was scary!
This movie came out in 1975 and I was probably too young to have seen it in the movie theaters but I did see it eventually and when I did...wow! It had me to the edge of my seat.
It was hard to hear the crunching of bones and then see the blood oozing down into the water.
Watch this if you've never seen it before. I know when I did, I couldn't get it out of my mind when next I went to go swimming in the ocean.
I wouldn't recommend this to little kids. It can give you nightmares and make you afraid to go swimming in the ocean. It shows blood and guts and has some cursing in it, also adult situations and nudity.
It stars Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss.
My favorite was Robert Shaw. I found these interesting facts about him for this movie:

Take a peek at the trailer for this one:
I read the best selling book by Peter Benchley and it was definitely a great read! You can find it at Amazon:
This is the movie that coined the phrase:
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
There is a reason for that one....check it out!
A true classic.
