Jaws (1974) The classic, blockbuster thriller of man-eating terror that inspired the Steven Spielberg movie and made millions of beachgoers afraid to go into the water. Experience the thrill of helpless horror again—or for the first time!

The Deep (1976)  A young couple go to Bermuda on their honeymoon. They dive on the reefs offshore, looking for the wreck of a sunken ship. What they find lures them into a strange and increasingly terrifying encounter with past and present, a struggle for salvage and survival along the floor of the sea, in the deep.

The Island (1979)  Blair Maynard decides to investigate the mystery of why so many boats disappear in the Bermuda Triangle of the Caribbean. He takes his son with him to the area on "vacation" and, while fishing, both are attacked by an unkempt man and forcibly brought to an uncharted island. On the island, Blair discovers the terrible truth: the inhabitants are a savage group of pirates, made up of outcasts, thieves, and murderers, who have hidden from the outside world, raiding boats to sustain themselves, since the 1700s.
