Few creature features are as thrilling and suspenseful as Steven Spielberg's classic Jaws. He knew what he was doing when he adapted Peter Benchley's bestseller for the big screen.
The backdoor production problems were infamous but as history showed, it was all worth it as Jaws became the first true blockbuster of the modern Hollywood era and it remains among the best. This is doubtlessly the result of the combined talents of Steven Spielberg, the trio of talented actors (Scheider, Shaw, and Dreyfus), and John Williams for his famously chilling score.
Sure it may have spawned a slew of imitators and a series of mediocre-to-terrible sequels, but the original film itself has not lost its touch. It's amazing how well it's aged and how it remains so effectively suspenseful.
