I'm sure that we're all familiar with 1978's Piranha, a gruesome, yet amusing goof on Jaws. But what if the film didn't seem so lighthearted? What if the film was promoted as a straight thriller cut from the exact cloth of its predecessor? Well, you'd have this:

The funny thing is that this isn't some recent fan edit trailer. New World themselves (or, perhaps, their foreign equivalent) put this together for international release. I can only assume that this was done as overseas audiences wouldn't get the nuances of the film's sardonic dialogue and decided to focus on plain ol' thrills.

Not even the cheesiness of the last couple seconds can diminish the effectiveness of the ad.
