12 Days of Terror is a 2004 docudrama made for The Discovery Channel, directed by Jack Sholder and starring Colin Egglesfield, Mark Dexter, Jenna Harrison and John Rhys-Davies.



Based on true events that occurred in July, 1916 in Central and Southern New Jersey, as recounted in the book by Richard Fernicola of the same name, the film recounts 12 days during which people along the Jersey coast were subject to attacks by a shark (in the film it is a great white shark). Four people were killed and a fifth badly injured. After the shark was captured, an autopsy was performed, and it is said that 15 pounds of human flesh were found in its stomach. Because a propensity for human flesh is unnatural, scientists are still investigating why this shark did what it did.

These real events were actually the events that inspired Peter Benchley to write the best selling novel Jaws, which later became a movie.
