Truly great horror movies leave a lasting impression after the credits have rolled. It doesn't have to last long- maybe a few hours or a weekend. The horror films that make you sleep with the lights on for a week or avoid your attic for a year are the ones that deserve to be remembered. "Jaws" had viewers avoiding beaches for years after becoming the first true summer hit movie. "Shark Night 3D" hopes to emulate that success. How Tennessee viewers feel about "Shark Night 3D?"
"I was a little let down by the 3D effects. I've been spoiled by movies that just did it better, but this one was particularly disappointing. I came today hoping for some throwaway entertainment filled with thrilling shark scenes. I didn't really get that." -- Steve Sheppard, 37, Cordova
"Too much like a bad video game. The plot was basically done being established in the first twenty minutes and then it just turns into a carbon copy of every other movie with sharks. The acting was better than I expected though." -- Aaron Val, 25, Memphis
"All I can say is, at least they killed off the right people early on. I was amused by the variety of sharks- you know, considering most of the time it's just a great white. I had a good time and even got a little freaked out." -- Loren Wells, 34, Memphis
"I was not impressed. Not impressed at all. It was a lame story about some stupid college kids that one by one get eaten by sharks. Boom. Ticket money saved." -- Blake Young, 25, Memphis
"I applaud this movie for sticking to its guns. It serves up a buffet of terrifying beasts of the sea and is unapologetic in its indulgence. That said, the much lauded 3D was nice, but not mind-blowing. Did anyone else notice how the movie kind of lost its coherency halfway through?" -- Francis P, 21, Summerville
"Don't give this a shot if you're expecting something deep. In terms of horror movies, this is a pond, not an ocean. They do get you psychologically with some of the fake-outs. Leaves you guessing when they take every opportunity to screw with your perception of what's going on underwater." -- Sophie Hampton, 29, Germantown
"I had low expectations when I found out this was just some college getaway turned nightmare movie. I'm sick of dumb, partying college kids getting themselves killed and expecting me to pay extra for 3D just to see it. After sitting through the first hour, I found myself growing a little attached to some of them. Sarah and Maya especially. The girl playing Sarah did a great job- better than I expected. I remember seeing her in some dumb parody movie, but she was good in that too." -- Shawn Gable, 25, Memphis
"The variety of sharks was a good choice- I appreciated that. I did enjoy how the movie strayed from the conventional shark attack format. Some of the performances were above average for a cheesy horror flick too, namely Red did a good job. It was cool diversion on an otherwise brutally hot summer day." -- Casey Ridge, 24, Memphis
