Night of the Sharks is a thrilling action-packed movie from 1988 that pits man against nature as a group of criminals and innocent victims are stranded on an island teeming with deadly sharks. The movie follows David Ziegler (Treat Williams), a professional diver who is hired by a criminal mastermind, Neree (Antonio Fargas), to retrieve a valuable diamond from the bottom of the ocean. To accomplish his goal, Ziegler teams up with two other divers, played by Janet Agren and Stelio Candelli. However, things don't go according to plan, and the divers find themselves stranded on a small island with no way of escape.

As they struggle to survive, they discover that the island is home to a large population of sharks that are more than willing to make a meal out of anyone who crosses their path. Forced to fight for their lives, the divers must find a way to outsmart the sharks and make it off the island alive.

One of the standout features of Night of the Sharks is its excellent cast of actors.
