Bronx Warriors (released in 1982), directed by Enzo G Castellari, mashes up elements of The Warriors (1979) and Escape from New York (1981) and is a lot of fun – it all seems a bit tongue in cheek;

Sfruttamento Movie Trailer Italiano Parte Due – ‘L’Ultimo Squalo’ (aka ‘The Last Jaws’. aka ‘Son Jaws’, aka ‘Great White’) (1981)


Enzo G. Castellari’s ‘version’ of the popular Great White Shark movie wasn’t much more than a direct steal from the classic Jaws. To quote the stalepopcorn review (link below) “…an enormous and angry 35 foot Great White Shark takes revenge on humans when they build a beach just for swimmers by a coastal town. After several shark attacks, and the Mayor does nothing to stop it, a dedicated shark specialist and a crazy weary fisherman set out in pursuit to stop it.”

Have a look at this trailer here;
