I love the Polish poster. What's scarier than a giant, killer great white shark? A giant, killer great white shark with two mouths.

Exactly! I wonder what's going on inside, though- they must connect to the same trachea, right? So it doesn't matter which mouth gets the food? How odd.

Jaws rocks but I never miss an opportunity to watch Jaws 3D. I know it's a terrible movie but I love it so much for its terribleness. So I heart the poster for Jaws 3D that's all cartoony and has the old lady holding an umbrella. Is that Japanese?

Two-mouthed shark vs. Human Centipede! Place your bets.

Ha! The Teeth of the Sea 4: The Revenge!

I can't decide between the Jaws 2 tagline "One good bite deserves another" and the 3D cartoon version! They're both too weird and cool.

The young Robson was so traumatized by the JAWS ad campaign that to this day, a picture of anything with teeth underwater kind of freaks me out. And yet the sunset poster for JAWS 2 is the one I find the most unsettling of these. It's the teeth you don't see that bite the soul the hardest.

Oh man, the Jaws 3-D Japanese poster is KILLING me. Putting shoujo eyes on anything that exists in real life or on paper will never cease to make me laugh.

Also, didn't the shark ROAR in Jaws 2?

When they filmed Jaws 3D at Seaworld Orlando, my 7th grade class got to be in the crowd scene. All I remember was some guy yelling through a maegaphone for everyone to cheer or gasp or point and look worried. Then when the movie came out, they sent free passes to all the schools who participated and we went to the ol' Orange Blossom Twin theater to see it. The 3D severed fish head at the beginning was pretty cool. Sadly, the film that followed it was not.

JAWS is my favourite movie ever.

And I really like that dusk teaser poster for JAWS 2. Very nice.
