TTF13 - HORROR MOVIE PICKS OF THE WEEK

JEREMIAH'S PICK - 'TINTORERA: KILLER SHARK' 

1977 - Rene Cardona Jr. - 2H 6MIN

"Cliche character archetypes, spanish stereotypes, wacka-wacka music, copious amounts of ugly sex, horribly scratchy underwater stock footage, a few minutes of killing fish, and sometimes, Hugo Stiglitz.

Pretty much everything you'd ever want in a horror film about killer sharks."

Synopsis

Two shark hunters flirt with an attractive British lady while hunting down a large tiger shark terrorizing the Mexican East coast.
