About the Movie
In the tradition of Open Water and Rogue comes a thrilling and suspenseful new horror film inspired by the true events of a terrifying crocodile attack. What begins as a leisurely boat tour down the rivers of Northern Australia becomes a horrifying race for survival when Grace, Adam and Lee become hostages of a man-eating crocodile. When their boat suddenly capsizes in a mangrove swamp they are shocked to find that their guide is missing. Realizing they've been attacked by a crocodile, the only place they can find safety is up a tree. Now, stranded in the flooded swamp, starving and terrified, the three must battle to survive the bloodthirsty beast who sits below just waiting for one of them to lose their grip.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A lack of incisive action takes the teeth out of croc pic...offering too few scares and insufficient tension for audiences to take the bait.
Fresh: Splendid in its economy, Black Water gets a grip on our senses and never lets go %u2026 the writer/directors portray nature as something wondrous and deadly all at once, which is what it is of course, without guilt, without an agenda %u2013 except surviva
Fresh: Nasty, brutish and at 89 minutes just the right length.
Fresh: Writer-directors David Nerlich and Andrew Traucki calibrate the tension with creditable skill.
Admittedly, I was gearing up for a low-budget, campy, laughable disappointment. I was quite pleasantly surprised! It is, in fact, a low-budget film, but boasts strong performances by the small cast. A very impressive touch is using mostly live crocodile action - not the easiest thing in the world! Definitely worth watching.
Don't waste your money!
This movie is in my top 10 worst movies lol, you only get to see the monster or what ever it is like 5 maybe 4 times in the hole movie. And it has the worst ending ever! don't waste your money on it!
Good suspense movie
Good suspense movie. Person who says the "monster or whatever it is" obviously did not watch the movie. It is a crocodile. Not a monster. A crocodile. It is not action pact or fast paced, but it captures the horror of an unseen enemy. Worth a watch.
