Happy Shark Week! šŸ˜€Ā 
We both love sharks and are fully aware that they get a worse rap than they deserve, but as horror enthusiasts we also love a good & bloody eat-’em-up shark movie! So, in honor of Shark Week, we’ve put together a list of Shark movies that are total guilty pleasures. Because at the end of the day, that’s really what these movies always boil down to, isn’t it?

Deep Blue Sea

An oldie, but a goodie. You have crazy smart killer Mako Sharks terrorizing the scientists and other staff in an underwater lab who have been testing on them. Kind of makes it hard not to root for the sharks, but you gotta at least love LL Cool J as a chef with his sassy parrot sidekick. As 90’s kids, this one will always hold a special place in our hearts. šŸ˜›

The Meg

Based off the book series, and also partially taking place in an underwater lab, you have man pitted against the ancient predator of the deep, the Megalodon
Ā 
The Shallows

Determined shark vs. Determined Blake Lively. Seriously, to have even just a portion of this shark’s attention span. Also, bonus points for letting other wildlife get in on the fun of torturing humans in this one. šŸ˜›
47 Meters Down/47 Meters Down: Uncaged

More overly-determined sharks who just refuse to give up. Like, they should really just hire sharks apparently to be motivational speakers.
Are these movies ridiculous and over the top nonsense? Yes, 100%, but that’s also part of the fun. There’s plenty more we could have added to our list, but we’ll leave that up to you guys to fill us in on what your favorite shark movie is. We’d love to find out! šŸ™‚ What’s your go-to shark movie guilty pleasure?

Welcome to our little blog of horrors, Sugar & Scream! If you're looking for a monstrously good time, rest assured, you've come to the right place. We're two best friends with a sisterhood forged in the Unholy Trinity that is Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction. When we're not busy devouring books, we're cooking up sinisterly scrumptious baked goods and other delights (and sometimes horrors) in our kitchens. Expect the unexpected, because we like to shake things up. Our blog is its own Frankenstein's Monster of our hobbies and passions all stitched together into one glorious abomination that encompasses everything from what we're reading and watching, to the hobbies we're working on, to our adventures in baking and plenty more!

  1. Love all of those examples! Another favourite of mine is Open Water, although that one is less silly and over-the-top and more just anxiety-inducing šŸ˜€

  2. This blog is just a gosh dang treat, lol. I completely forgot about LL Cool J and his parrot! I always focus on the fact that the shark jumps straight up, does an entire rotation in order to eat Samuel L. Jackson, and then goes right back in the water.

    I’m a big fan of The Meg, especially the way it doesn’t get caught up in some stupid Jason Statham romance subplot where he dominates an “exotic” woman, like most of his movies do.

    The shark movie that never fails to SCARE me is 47 Meters Down. I had two friends who scuba dive explain why those sisters would have drowned in about 13 minutes due to the depth, etc. but all those underwater shots where things are cloudy and murky….oof.

    1. Haha, we’re so glad that you’re enjoying the blog. It’s been really fun working on it together.
      I (Ashleigh), really want to cage dive but 47 Meters Down is literally my main fear of doing it lol. I realize the depth part is unrealistic but the more I watch Shark Week, the more I’m seeing these cages with ropes attaching them to the boats and not chains. I really wonder about that though. Perhaps rope has more give if a shark gets caught up in it? And the chain would just snap? UGH.

      1. Wait……so, are the cages just floating or something? How do you get back up?!?!?! The cage diving I typically see is just where you go a few feet under waters so you’re “in” the water with the sharks.

  3. Jaws 4 and the direct to video Shark Attack trilogy of the early 2000s are always good for a laugh. Then there’s the X-headed Shark Attack series. My blu-ray copies of Deep Blood and Cruel Jaws just came, but I haven’t had time to check them out yet.
