To celebrate the release of the thunderous nerve-wracker disaster movie THE WAVE – on DVD & Blu-ray 15th August – we have teamed up with StudioCanal UK to giveaway a copy on Blu-ray!

From director Roar Uthaug (currently helming the new Tomb Raider reboot starring Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander!), The Wave pulls no punches as it destroys a picturesque Norwegian town with a 300 foot tsunami.

In the vein of classic disaster movies, The Wave pits an ordinary man against the fury of nature as he tries to save and reunite his family, resulting in frame after frame of edge-of-your-seat action.

“One of the best disaster movies in years” GamesRadar+

“Puts Hollywood disaster movies to shame.” Perri Nemiroff, Collider

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!

  1. Poseidon as the thought of a slow death is terrifying.

  2. Waterworld – the amount of money spent on that is truly horrifying

  3. Jaws is the film that terrified me as a kid & although it doesn’t have the same effect when I watch it now, if I feel startled in the sea I can still hear that music. How many film scores can have that effect on people ????

  4. Jaws frightened me the most as a kid – it doesn’t quite have the same impact on me now though.

  5. Das Boot, running out of air in a stricken submarine or being blown up by Allied forces is spine-chilling

  6. Jaws, although I live in a cold climate only sharks are baskings, still don’t fancy swinning anywhere near a potentially great white location.

  7. The remake of Poseidon, can’t stand the drowning bit.

  8. Jaws is scary.

  9. Das Boot, especially in Surround Sound with the eerie dripping behind you

  10. Poseidon, was a bit scary

  11. Poseidon

  12. Jaws. I was only a kid when I watched the film and it terrified the life out of me.

  13. Open Water – Simply shot based on a true life mistake. The gradual terrifying circling of the sharks and the slow death of the two swimmers still makes me think twice before diving in tropical waters.

  14. The film Piranha as there were so many of them

  15. Jaws – I visit Australia a lot and never go on the beaches there without thinking about it

  16. Poseidon, The thought of being upside down in the water scares me.

  17. Jaws scared me as a child, I love that movie 🙂

  18. I think the effect that Jaws had upon me when I saw it as a new release was enough for me to nominate it as the scariest Water-Themed film of all time. A combination of music, sound effects, superb acting but most of all fantastic filmography (getting the animatronic “Bruce” to actually feel terrifying was incredible). Even today, Jaws will scare the bejabers out of newcomers to its delights.

  19. Jaws, when I was a wee lad this cared the poop out of me

  20. Triangle is one of my faves, it really messes with your head!!

  21. The Impossible about the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami

  33. The Impossible – the scenes of the Tsunami and the aftermath are vast

  34. It was always the Original Jaws!

  35. i’m going to cheat and say the dr who episode the waters of mars. it is nearly impossible to be scared by “monster movies” which rules out most water based horrors.

    dark water comes close, but that dr who episode was stunningly effective in making water itself a genuine threat and properly terrifying.

  36. Leviathan

  37. Jaws

  38. Deep blue sea.

  39. Jaws, I saw it when it was realised and I was only a child. Had nightmares about it for years. People tell me to rematch it now and that I will find it funny but I just can’t do it.

  40. The Abyss – so oppressive

  41. Jaws – never bettered

  42. jaws – love that film

  43. Jaws, I was quite young at the time and the music did it for me – I was terrified

  45. Jaws, all the way. Still a fantastic film after all these years

  46. has to anaconda!

  47. The 2006 version of Poseidon because of Kurt Russell’s drowning scene. Scarily realistic.

  48. Has to be jaws made me too scared to go back in the water!

  59. Deep Blue Sea. The thought of sharks being super intelligent and able to hunt and eat you that way frightens the life out of me.

  60. Jaws

  61. Sharknado – the thought of giant sharks coming out of the sky has to put the bejesus up everyone. Although Finding Nemo comes close as I thought that Nemo would never get home.

  62. Jaws, the bench mark for all water themed scaries

  63. Has to be Jaws

  64. Ghostboat starring david jason, how it suddenly emerged decades later to claim the one person (david jason) who escaped when it originally sank/went missing

  65. Jaws – which will teach me for sneakingly watching it through the banister as a child when my parents thought I was asleep!

  66. Has to be jaws

  83. The original Japanese ‘Dark Water’ – creepy shiz.

  84. I have a morbid fear of the sea anyway, but the original JAWS just blew me away when I saw it at the cinema. I still watch the DVD occasionally and it still raises goosebumps. Fantastic film.

  85. Das Boot, the thought of being stuck under water with no means of escape is petrifying!

  86. Black Water

  87. Jaws, it was very scary.

  88. Definitely Jaws!

  89. Sphere (1998)

  90. Deep Blue Sea the thought of much bigger much smarter sharks is really scary 🙂

  91. The Abyss, it just has such a claustrophobic feel to it

  92. The Abyss is by far the worst for me with them being that deep under the water and the moving water looking at them.

  93. Jaws is the ultimate, water, scary movie – who hasn’t been swimming in the sea, when the film (uninvited and unwelcome) pops into your head to ruin your water time??

  94. Jaws

  95. Piranha scared me x

  96. The original Jaws frightened me the most and nothing has come near it since.

  97. I know it’s been said a lot but it has to be Jaws for me too!

  98. For me its The Cave. I’m claustrophobic, so even the thought of spelunking in underwater caverns chills me to the core. Let alone being chased by nasties down there 🙂

  99. Got to be Jaws

  100. Jaws! It’s scary.

  101. Jaws

  102. it has to be jaws

  104. open water. the potential realism is scary.

  105. jaws

  106. ADRIFT ~ how do you get back on that boat?!
    Brilliant movie, so scary how one person’s stupid mistake could be fatal for the whole group and how many dangers you face when adrift in the open ocean.
    I flip out if seaweed touches my foot 😛

  107. It all comes down to thinking fast,can’t wait to see, has to be lot better than jaws or the Poseidon
