Bait is a 2012 movie that follows a group of people who are being stalked by a killer great white. After a Tsunami hits the coast of Queensland, Australia some residents of the city are trapped in the local supermarket. It’s bad enough that many people were washed away the raging waters of the Tsunami, now the survivors have to fight off not one, but two, ravenous man-eating sharks. The movie starts with a hung over boy named Josh being awakened by his friend Rory and told that he shouldn’t have proposed to Rory’s sister, Tina. Josh heads out to the beach where Tina is just as an old man is eaten by a shark. Another lifeguard sees it happen and tries to alert Rory, who is also a lifeguard, but Rory can’t hear him. Josh rushes to try to save his friend but the shark bursts through Rory’s surfboard and devours him, as Josh looks on in horror. Fast forward to a year later and Josh is working in a supermarket, still feeling guilty about not being able to save Rory. As a pair of convicts is trying to rob the supermarket, a Tsunami hits. Out of all of the people in the supermarket, there are only 13 people left alive when the waters start to recede slowly. As the people trapped in the supermarket try to find a way out one of them is attacked by a 12-foot great white shark that only lives to feed. Just when they think things could not get any worse it is discovered that there are two great whites devouring the survivors of the Tsunami instead of just one. Various methods are used to try and kill the sharks that are eating the survivors one by one, but they all fail. The survivors soon realize that they have to offer the sharks live bait if they hope to survive to see tomorrow.
