Directed by Andrew Traucki
A ferocious shark stalks a group of friends trying to swim to safety after a shipwreck. As the fiend with fins picks off each of the pals, the blue Australian water is turned into blood-red broth. Who will make it to shore in one piece – and who will wind up in ol’ Toothy’s stomach? You’ll have to watch to find out, but suffice it to say that this aquatic Australian horror film breathes new life into the frightful fish genre in an era when SHARKNADO is sadly more well-known than JAWS. The scariest thing about THE REEF? It’s all based on a true story... Contains strong language, violence and gore.

The movie is really restrained, very effective in building tension. The director said the fear comes from the unknown, when will the shark come, who will it take, the terror was palpable if you can put yourself in their shoes. Good movie, just sorry it's based on real events.
RIP those who died since it is a TRUE STORY
One of the better shark movies. Great tension and you feel for the characters.
Snooooore. Too boring.
This movie has great acting and that’s about it. They set it up to be super tense all the time but if it’s always super tense then over time people will get less scared. It did a really poor job with characters. These were real people and they feel so flat as characters. The movie will drone on about a topic for no reason. There is so much to this movie that could have been done better. The footage of the shark was probably taken from a nature documentary. IT WAS BAD. When a character died I just didn’t care because there was nothing TO that character. They want you to feel bad about these characters but I just didn’t care. They don’t develop at all so it’s just empty husks of characters being killed off. Don’t watch this movie
