Steven Spielberg's JAWS & Joe Dante's THE 'BURBS
Jaws (PG 1975, 125 min)
When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous white shark, the town's chief of police (Roy Scheider), a young marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss) and a grizzled shark hunter (Roberrt Shaw) embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Jaws remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history.
The 'Burbs (PG, 1989, 101 min)
Ray Peterson (Tom Hanks) would like nothing better than to spend a quiet week's vacation with his wife (Carrie Fisher) in their suburban home, drinking beer and watching TV. But spurred on by his friend's paranoid fantasies about their reclusive neighbors, the usually down-to-earth Ray begins to suspect the new family in town is actually a front for a cannibalistic cult...to the point where he and his buddies become psychotically nosey.
