Night of the Sharks (original title La notte degli squali) is a 1988 Italian English-languade adventure movie directed by Tonino Ricci (credited as Anthony Richmond). James Ziegler (Carlo Mucari) manages to get a valuable information about the illegal activites of a wealthy businessman Rosentski (John Steiner) and blackmails him. Rosentski sends his henchmen to retrieve the CD with information from James, but James sends the disk to his brother David (Treat Williams), a shark hunter in Mexico. Now Rosentski's men go for David who is busy with his personal war against a giant one-eyed shark that he call Cyclops.
