Shark Attack 3: Megalodon is a 2002 horror thriller film directed by David Worth. The film was not distributed by any film company. The film became a cult following.


When two researchers discover a colossal shark's tooth off the Mexican coast their worst fears surface - the most menacing beast to ever rule the waters is still alive and mercilessly feeding on anything that crosses its path.

Why It Sucks

  1. Whenever the Megalodon appears, the film uses stock footage of real-life great white sharks.
  2. A bizarre storyline, which still clear things out a little.
  3. The effects of the megalodon are just terrible.
  4. Terrible pacing.
  5. Horrible acting.
  6. The script is atrocious. Such as the infamous "What do you say I take you home and eat your p****?" line.
  7. The story still copies the elements of Jaws.
  8. The Megalodon roars, just like the great white shark in Jaws: The Revenge, which is absurd since sharks do not have vocal cords.
  9. Continuity errors: The Megalodon noticeably keeps changing size throughout the movie.
  10. The film was largely shot in Bulgaria despite being set in Mexico, and Bulgarian actors were hired to play Mexicans.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Decent soundtrack.
  2. The scene where a man drives with a jet ski and goes into Megalodon's mouth is awfully hilarious.


As of 2021, the film currently holds a 33% on Rotten Tomatoes with IMDB scores a 2.9/10 rating.


The infamous scene.
