Format: DVD
It was strange watching a movie based on a book which was the basis of a movie based on another book.
I am, of course, referring to Peter Benchley's "Jaws" - the reason I have not gone swimming in the Pacific Ocean these past 30 years!
"Twelve Days of Terror" is a very good presentation of a reasonably well researched story. The acting is top-notch and the writing and direction well done. There is one throw-away line which pays hommage to Benchley. If you aren't paying attention, you will miss it. The hero has thrown in his job as a life guard on the beach and is looking for another job. He mate sympathises with him then the hero says 'I need a bigger town!'
It's a very good movie, suitable for all but the youngest children. And it makes an impact, which is more than can be said for a lot of movies these days.
I full recommend it.

OK, I really like Shark attack films, own most of them and some are a bit dire but this one is so different. Everyone knows the daddy of all shark films is JAWS but when Peter Benchley penned "Jaws" it was actually based on real events which happened on the American East coast and Inland waterways in the summer of 1912. If this had have been made before Jaws then you would quite easily think that Jaws was a modern re-make.
This film is not as "edge of your seat" as Jaws, but boy oh boy really delivers, the attack scenes are filmed really well and you can follow the story. To this day there is still uncertainty as to whether the shark involved was a Great White or a Bull, mainly because of the attack in Matewan Creek.
The film has a made for TV feel about it, but really is worth buying if you like creature features,plus with this one it has the added bonus that IT REALLY HAPPENED.
Total 5 stars.

A shark movie with class 24 Nov. 2006
By B. Bost - Published on
Format: DVD
Maybe it's because people seemed more dignified in the early 1900's, I'm not sure, I just enjoyed watching a shark film without the sterotypical cast, including the arrogant shark hunter, a bunch of foolish babes that get eaten, etc. etc. It made me think of A and E's (Arts and Entertainment) version of, 'The Great Gatsby,' in it's design. Overall one of the better shark films.

The movie was good. I bought it for a friend and she really liked it. Of course she's crazy about sharks and scary movies so take that as you will.

Second Best Shark Movie to Jaws 7 Jun. 2010
By Sharklady - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a TERRIFIC shark movie -- one of the best I've seen yet, coming in second to "Jaws". It captures the time, people and shark attacks of 1916 in New Jersey, except it takes place at one location (Matawan Creek) instead of three different places along the Jersey shore. Other than that, it is great! The setting and costumes look authentic and take you back in time, reminescent of Boardwalk Empire. I highly recommend this movie for anyone that studies sharks. I just finished reading Close to Shore, the book by Michael Capuzzo depicting the New Jersey shark attacks of 1916. My next read will be the book in which this movie, 12 Days of Terror, was based as the movie was exceptional, especially considering how badly made and written the movies on shark attacks generally are. You won't be disappointed; any shark-lover will enjoy it.

Better than Jaws! 24 Mar. 2008
By Punisher79 - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie retells the tragic story of how, during 12 days during the summer of 1916 in New Jersey, a shark attacked and killed 4 people, while maiming a fifth. The victims were Charles Vansant on 7/1/16; Charles Bruder on 7/6/16; Lester Stillwell and Stanley Fisher on 7/12/16. Joseph Dunn was also attacked on 7/12/16, but was the lone survivor.
This movie is non-stop in the suspense and action. There is literally very little time to catch your breath and relax before the next attack takes place. There is an attack and death within the first 20 minutes of the movie! If that wouldn't grab your attention, I don't know what would! I found this movie held my attention from the beginning, and is worth watching again. I actually prefer this movie over Jaws, maybe because it's based on true events.
The special effects in the movie are okay, at times looking like it was computer generated. You never get a good look at the wounds of those that have been attacked by the shark, but you get just enough of a glimpse to see the damage that was done, and why it was so devestating.
The events of this movie are considered to be the inspiration for Peter Benchley's "Jaws." Scenes in this movie can be found to be similar to what Peter Benchley wrote in his book. For example, after the first death, a lifeguard named Alex tells people that the death was due to a shark attack, but was told it could have been done as a result of an errant torpedo from a German U-Boat. This is very similar to Jaws, when the girl dies, and Brody is initially told is was due to a shark attack, but then later told it was the result of a boating accident.
A bonus feature states that a 7 1/2 foot Great White Shark was caught and found to have human remains inside of it, but there is speculation that it was actually a Bull Shark, and not a Great White.
Skip Jaws, watch this instead!
