It’s been a good 12 months for Jaws fans. Steven Spielberg’s classic tale of a man-eating shark prowling the waters off of Amity Island had its Blu-ray debut last August and earned rave reviews not only for its restored image, but for packing in a boatload of extras for hard-core fans. The crown jewels of that set were two feature-length documentaries about the film – including the long delayed The Shark Is Still Working.
While TSISW was a truncated cut from the earlier prerelease edits some of us saw years ago, it was still an amazing tribute to the original summer blockbuster. However, if you’re as ravenous for Jaws lore as a great white is for baby seals and little kids on rafts, we’ve got some exciting news.
Jamie Benning’s Inside Jaws: A Filmumentary is now online for your viewing pleasure. Running at right around two-and-a-half hours, there’s lots to feast on here.
You may remember Benning from his earlier fan documentary Raiding the Lost Ark, which covered another Spielberg classic in-depth. The filmmaker says when he finished that project, he immediately threw himself into Inside Jaws – although the film was originally called Jaws Bites Back.
The best part of all this? You can watch Inside Jaws in its entirety for free thanks to the magic of the Internet. We haven’t had a chance to sit down and watch the whole thing yet, but given how much fun Raiding the Lost Ark was, we expect great things from this one. Check it out below.
