A Vietnam veteran with a psychic connection to sharks (Richard Jaeckel, THE DIRTY DOZEN) discovers their exploitation by the local aquarium and begins an underwater reign of terror to avenge them. With the worldwide success of JAWS in 1975, Florida’s undisputed King of the B’s, William Grefe (STANLEY), set out to create his own shark-themed actioner. Starring Richard Jaeckel, Harold ‘Oddjob’ Sakata and Jennifer Bishop, MAKO: THE JAWS OF DEATH dared to shoot the action scenes using real sharks. Relying on experience gathered while direction the shark action sequences for the James Bond hit LIVE AND LET DIE, Grefe took his risky production into new, uncharted waters and brought an intense underwater thriller to theater screens. The DVD features a new 16×9 widescreen transfer, an Italian coming attractions trailer, and a bonus transfer of the Super 8mm ”home movie” version.
