A US camera crew have created a chilling video that will probably give selachophobics (that’s people with a fear of sharks) nightmares for years to come.

Filmed off the coast of Maryland, near Ocean City, in July this year, the video initially shows bait innocently trailing behind a sports boat. However, at 0:16, a huge mako shark cruises into view, and behind to make light work of the fish being dragged behind the boat.

So far, almost 1.5 million people have watched the creepy video, which features the music from Jaws, of course.
