Review - 12 Days of Terror

The Discovery Channel uses the 1916 Jersey Shore shark attacks as a flimsy excuse for a cheap Jaws remake. When I was a kid I was scared witless by a written account of the Matawan Creek attacks. Further, the actual attacks were responsible for a sea change in public attitudes about sharks, which previously had not been considered a threat to swimmers. But this movie captures pretty much none of that. Instead we get familiar characters in familiar situations, simply sixty years removed. See if desperate.
