Films Based on Unbelievable True Stories

'Jaws' (1975)

The plot of “Jaws” isn’t entirely based on a true story, but the brutal shark attacks in the film are. In 1916, a great white shark began terrorizing the waters of the Jersey shore, causing mass hysteria all over the country. The beast killed four people and injured one over a span of just 11 days. The story inspired Peter Benchley's 1974 novel “Jaws,” which was later adapted for the big screen by Steven Spielberg in 1975. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Universal)
