Friend of the 3Yen, Chris Carlier spotted this gem at the Tsutaya video store. Note that the DVD’s cover reads “Frying Jaws” but the spine of the case has “Flying Jaws” （＾＿－）.
I'm pretty sure that title is supposed to be "Flying Jaws", but anything is possible in shark movies these days.

In case you were wondering, Frying Jaws‘ real title is “Swamp Shark” according to IMDb.com ⇨
Something nobody wants to see!
