Plot[edit | edit source]

Greg, Allison, and Ryan.

The greatest man-eater is three times as deadly when a mutated great white shark with three heads originating from the Great Pacific garbage patch eats its way through an island research facility, forcing the group led by Doctor Laura Thomas to evacuate before the facility was destroyed. The group standing on the shore swim one-by-one towards the boat in the middle of the lake, but the shark ate two of them while on the way.

Beware the 3-headed shark!

As the survivors escape on the boat, the shark finds a party boat, forcing the passengers to fight the deadly predator using anything they could find. As the shark chomps its way from one end of the boat to the other, survivors from the research facility arrive and attempt to help the passengers escape. They escape, however it's only short lived as the shark is hot on their trail.

At one point the 3-headed shark's middle head is chopped off, only to find that it grows three more heads in its place. The survivors head off the new island with new boats. As one of the boats is destroyed, killing the remaining passengers of the party boat, the remaining survivors come up with a plan that uses garbage as it's key to killing the monstrosity. This leads to Stanley being killed and then to the shark killing itself, leaving only two survivors out of a group of well over seventy. [1]
