Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The whole film is a campy put-on, right? Apparently not.
Rotten: Whatever tension the pic manages to build ... is mostly undercut by the recurring appearance of the fish and by the generally overemphatic performances of the human cast ...
Rotten: Its stance toward every dipshit slasher and creature-horror flick that's come before it never feels less than casually hostile.
Not worth it
I was willing to give the movie a chance. But every moment made me realize that the people on this thing werent trying to make a comedy.
Have you ever been trapped in a lake while about 20 yards from shore ? If u were trying to get to shore , would u inexplicably go the long way? And if someone had died to give u a minute to escape, a monster would u spend that time - over and over -arguing about whether ur girlfriend slept with someone else?
Movie was boring and ridiculous. Although the monster was unintentionally very funny. DON'T RENT IT!!!!
I really wanted to like this movie but the characters kept making the most absurd decisions, and their actions were so implausible that I could not suspend my belief for the required 90 minutes. There is a bit of bad acting, mixed with some good, but overall the plot falls short of being fully developed, so I don't feel that the actors had a lot to work with. I'd recommend this film to horror enthusiast who are okay with faults such as I listed, but I suspect many viewers will be left feeling annoyed.
