Man-Eater is actually a Samuel Fuller retread from 1969, re-released in 1975 for SOME reason.  It was originally released as either Shark, Caine or Twist of the Knife depending on which source you’re consulting. The film is somewhat notorious because a stuntman was actually killed by a shark while filming. And perhaps not in the most tasteful of moves, the producers decided to tout that fact in the initial ad campaigns, a decision that, along with some extensive re-editing, caused Fuller to disavow the film altogether.
