Where Hot Summer Nights Turn Into Cold Terror
Every swimmer's nightmare
There's a monstrous killer churning up the sea... Tintorera ... Bloody Waters
Tintorera is a 1977 Mexican-British horror film directed by René Cardona Jr and starring Susan George, Hugo Stiglitz, Fiona Lewis and Andrés García. It is based on the novel of the same name by oceanographer Ramón Bravo that studied the species of shark known as "tintorera" (a 19 ft shark) and discovered the sleeping sharks of Isla Mujeres. The film, along with many monster movies of the 1970s and 1980s is very similar to Jaws. It is also known by the alternative title Tintorera: Killer Shark.
Release Date: August 1978
