There’s a new summer horror swimming your way. Netflix is diving into shark-infested waters with the French film Under Paris, a thrilling new film from director Xavier Gens (Mayhem!, The Cold Skin).

A Familiar Premise with a Twist

We’ve all seen the classic Jaws scenario – a killer shark disrupts a seaside paradise. Under Paris takes this familiar concept and flips it on its head, placing the terror in the heart of Paris along the iconic Seine River. The film follows a celebration that takes a bloody turn when a massive shark emerges from the depths, transforming a festive event into a public relations nightmare.

Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) stars as Sophia, a brilliant scientist who uncovers the horrifying truth about the lurking predator. Joining forces with Mika, a young environmental activist, and Adil, the Seine River police commander (played by Nassim Lyes, Overdose), Sophia races against time to stop the carnage before the City of Lights is stained crimson.

A Return to Quality Shark Horror?

Shark attack films have become a dime a dozen since Jaws set the standard in the 1970s. Many pale imitators have flooded the market, but Under Paris seems poised to buck the trend. With its unique setting, talented cast, and experienced director at the helm, this Netflix offering has the potential to be a breath of fresh air for the subgenre.

Will Under Paris sink or swim? Dive into the action-packed trailer and decide for yourself come June 5, 2024, when it swims onto Netflix! If you’re a fan of shark movies, we recommend that you check out the documentary Sharksploitation, out now on Shudder.
