Horror fans urge others to watch 'most terrifying shark movie ever made' that's just dropped on Netflix

Horror fans urge others to watch 'most terrifying shark movie ever made' that's just dropped on Netflix

It's got a pretty solid critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes

A French horror film dubbed 'Shark de Triomphe' has just dropped on Netflix and some viewers are calling it one of the 'most terrifying shark movies ever made'.

And that's not a title that can be easily won, especially given the pantheon of all the other shark films out there - like Jaws and Deep Blue Sea, to name a few.

The Xavier Gens-led film follows the story of Sophia (Bérénice Bejo), a marine biologist whose colleagues were on the receiving end of fatal shark attacks.

Five years after failed attempts to locate the beast, an environmental activist named Mika (Léa Léviant) discovers a shark lurking in the Seine days before the World Triathlon Championships are hosted in Paris.

It also happens to be the same shark that Sophia was once tracking.

Sophia, Mika, and police officer Adil (Nassim Lyes) then join forces in an attempt to take down the merciless shark.

Titled Under Paris, you can take a look at the eerie trailer below:

With a solid 80 percent Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has been largely well received.

"Xavier Gens' Under Paris is one of the most brutally nihilistic, engrossing, and genuinely terrifying shark movies made in the last few years," one viewer tweeted.

As a second added: "Joining the chorus to say Xavier Gens' shark movie, Under Paris, is a blast."

"Great set pieces, environmental issues, and smart Jaws homages. A definite good [review] for her movie," penned a third.

A fourth said: "Under Paris has absolutely no right to be as good as it is. This is Creature Feature goodness through and through.

"The catacombs scene, my god, 10/10 anxiety inducing horror."

A fifth called it a 'blast' and highly recommended it to 'shark movie lovers'.

Meanwhile, it seems not everyone was a fan, as it received an underwhelming 40 percent audience score on the film review website.

One viewer branded it 'terrible', while another called it 'unwatchable', adding: "Mediocre cgi, no tension, missed chances at gore, nonsensical plot points, and cringy dialogues and interactions between characters and an ending so over the top its simply absurd.

"It's nearly impossible to get immersed in the story."

Someone else said: "What an absolute shocker of a film. Lots of ideas that made no sense what so ever.

"The end what can I say WTF. I guess it's worth the watch just so you can say WTF at the end, made no sense what so ever."

If some of the bad reviews haven't put you off, Under Paris is available to watch on Netflix now.
