So I watched Jaws for the first time a week ago...all very scary until the shark jumped onto the boat. At that point, I lost all my fear and wonder; it became more of a "what was THAT?"
For some reason, I find the concept of a man eating shark much scarier than man eating anything else. The Ghost and the Darkness is one of my favorite movies of all time...it's tense, but doesn't scare me. Maybe because lions don't live in the Pacific Northwest. Not that sharks do either...but still. They're so creepy! You can't see them and then they're right on top of you and they have such HUGE mouths!!!! (see above) They just look evil. At least you can tame a lion and it can be a big cat.
