Title: Tintorera!
Post by: Andrew on May 21, 2008, 04:12:10 PM
Maybe someone can tell me what "Tintorera" means.  It has to be Spanish for "three-way" or "tiger shark."  I'm just not sure which.

Saw this at a midnight movie show and thought a better title would be "All Animals Were Harmed In The Making Of This Movie." Funny movie. Love those plaid Speedos and gambling visors.

By the way, it means Tiger Shark. I think it was mentioned once in the film...

Yes, per a conversation between Steven's hired helper (nicknamed "Redhead") and a tourist.  I am still not sold on it.  Only part of the movie is about a tiger shark.  Most of the movie is about sexual encounters with at least three participants.

And killing sharks!

Awful, awful movie.  One of the worst ever made.  There is exactly one (1) good scene, the bit where the shark tears off the girl's leg and swims off with it.

Sounds like Summer Lovers (except with two guys and a girl, where SL had two girls and a guy).  I think I'd prefer the two girls and a guy thing better.  And it had a theme song by Chicago  :teddyr:

my review:

"normally really like the 70's exploitation mvies but this one ended up turning me off. like if you went out with an attractive man or woman and discovered they were racist, repugnant, or otherwise gross so that any appeal they had for you has long been forgotten and you just want to leave and forget the night ever happened. If you were to take Will Ferrel when he's making fun of 70's male sexuality and increase the macho posturing, latent homoeroticism and just general terribleness by a factor of about 1000 you'd have this. and then they start killing sharks. they really kill them too. It's like we are those sharks. You'll be longing for the days of political correctness after watching this"
