The ghost and the darkness – Actor MichaelDouglas and Val Kilmer, The ghost and the darkness is another tale of aggressive man-eating lions. Based on real events from the late 19th century, The ghost and the darkness tells the story of two lions, the “Tsavo cannibals”, who terrorized a construction project in East Africa. William Goldmanthe screenwriter behind it Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President’s men (not to mention the author of the novel The Prince’s Bride), wrote the screenplay for The ghost and the darkness.
Jaw – It’s hard to imagine talking about suspense movies with killer animals without mentioning this Jaw. This 1975 classic starring Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss pits a sheriff and his beach community against a violent man-eating shark, forcing the city to choose between responsible safety practices and denying the issue in order to spur tourism. The effects of that Steven Spielberg targeted hit must not be understated. Not only did it superstar Spielberg and the concept of the “summer blockbuster,” it also made sharks one of the most terrifying creatures imaginable, even though shark attacks are actually rare. The perfect atmosphere, the fact that the shark is rarely seen and the suspenseful soundtrack make for one of the best suspense films of all time.
