BASTARD PUPS OF JAWS: The Shark Hunter (1979)

Enzo G. Castellari gets plenty of love around these parts. After all, he brought us 1990: The Bronx Warriors, Escape from the Bronx and Warriors of the Wasteland, amongst others. Of course, we already covered his Jaws Xerox The Last Shark this week, but that's not the only shark movie he made.
