Enzo Castellari’s movie ‘The Last Shark’ is extremely similar to Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jaws’. Released in 1982 in the USA, it was immediately pulled out of theaters on charges of plagiarism. The film is also known under the titles ‘The Last Jaws’ and ‘Jaws Returns’. As a way to reconcile the unauthorized copy and the original, the work slowly crossfades from one movie to the other over the length of the entire film. Here, as a sequel to the work ‘the bootleg redux (torrent edit)’, a slow crossfade lasting the entire movie, goes from ‘Jaws’ to ‘The Last Shark’.
