[Video] A Visual FX Team Redid the Awful Shark Effects in ‘Jaws: The Revenge’ With Modern CGI



In pretty much every conceivable way, Jaws is the perfect example of a franchise getting worse with each new installment, with the devolution from the original classic to 1987’s Jaws: The Revenge being one of the most depressing in franchise history. Of particular note, the series’ shark effects devolved greatly between 1975 and 1987… oddly enough.

The practical effects, though they are indeed admirably practical, in Jaws: The Revenge aren’t so hot, and the team at CKVfx just set out to essentially give the film a visual effects makeover to see if they couldn’t improve upon the fourth installment’s 30-year-old practical work. For now, they’ve merely redone one shark sequence from the film, just uploaded on YouTube.

Horror fans may continue to hate on CGI, but movies like The Shallows prove that CG sharks can be just as terrifying as practical ones. In this case, better looking as well…
