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.

super great one time watch
I was really excited to watch a horror movie about a shipwreck and sharks especially because I love movies that are "Based on a True Story." However, this one was really slow and the ending was not satisfying at all. Like others have mentioned, it left us with questions about some of the characters, and honestly, it left me frustrated with how the last character(s) ended up.
As shark movies go, this one was pretty week. It doesn't wrap up, just ends abruptly and there's no real conclusion. You are just left wondering what happened to a couple of people at the end.
all about it!
Wow, this movie really got to me. Happens very rarely. I felt for the characters and was at the edge of my seat all the time. They kept the movie realistic and didn't cook up any bullshit like in "48MD". Also the use of effects was very clever. No in-your-face-CGI, which added to the realism. This is how you make a shark movie. For me THE REEF is one of the best out there. And yeah, the ending was very sad. :( greetings from europe.
