Jaws Deleted Scene: The Death Of Alex Kintner.

If you want your horror movie truly terrifying, don't show everything, and leave as much as possible to the audience's imagination. Everybody has their own definition of what's terrifying and what's not. By showing only hints of the action, each viewer will create their own nightmare out of the scene.

Steven Spielberg tweaked this nightmarish scene from Jaws. Originally, young Alex Kintner was supposed to be seen - literally - eaten by a shark.

Instead, Spielberg chose to 'just' show brief glimpses of the shark, with lots of water splashes and finally a huge spurt of blood.

The scene ended up less graphic, and far more scary...
