The Revenge’s Italian Deep Blood Scam Explained (Is It Better?)
Jaw: The Revenge received its own Italian rip-off with Deep Blood in 1989; here’s the movie explained and if it’s an improvement over the Jaws sequel.
Here is Jaws: revenge Italian scam deep blood explained, and whether it improves the maligned sequel. Jaws and its two sequels were huge hits for Universal, but the lackluster critical response to 3D jaws suggested the series had run its course. That is until Universal suffered a bad year in 1986 thanks to expensive bombs and decided to rush a fourth. Jaws in production for a summer 1987 release. The logic was that the series had always been a reliable income, so Jaws 4 would be a way to earn money quickly.
That left the cast and crew around nine months to write, film, and release a summer blockbuster. This lack of preparation affected the final draft, which suffered from an absurd script and special effects that did not hold up to scrutiny. Jaws: Revenge – which nearly killed Brody in the opener – was also panned by critics, though it had some standout elements, including an excellent score by Michael Small and some nightmarish set pieces. However, the sequel is still considered one of the worst ever made, and no further entries in the franchise were made.
Jaws: Revenge was also the subject of parody in the years that followed, including the famous Jaws 19 gag of Back to the future part II. At that time, it was not uncommon for Italian filmmakers to produce low-budget ripoffs of major blockbusters. Jaws itself inspired many Italian horror films, including those from 1981 The last shark. Surprisingly, Jaws: Revenge – which was lit due to howard the duck failing that – he himself received an Italian tribute in the form of 1989 deep blood. The film opens with four young friends who are told a story by a Native American about a spirit that takes the form of a killer shark. Years later, one of them is eaten by said shark and the others come together to destroy it.
In Jaws: RevengeEllen Brody worries that her family is being hunted by a shark, which apparently seeks revenge on Chief Brody who killed the shark in the original film. deep blood take Jaws: Revenge supernatural shark concept and works with it, and although it was largely inspired by Steven Spielberg Jaws, it also brings up scenes from the fourth outing, such as a chase through a sunken ship. While Italian ripoffs are often much wilder and wackier than the movies they’re inspired by, that’s not the case with deep blood.
In truth, much of the movie — credited to director Raffaele Donator but really helmed by exploitation legend Joe D’Amato — is pretty boring. Not much is happening in deep blood, and even shark attacks consist largely of stock footage of real sharks instead of practical effects. The acting is also mediocre, and at least Jaws: Revenge had people like Michael Caine or Mario Van Peebles to hold it together. deep blood is ultimately a very jumpable affair, and only shark movie junkies should seek it out.
