Sea Beast – Das Ungeheuer aus der Tiefe (TV Movie 2008)58K
Sea Beast – Das Ungeheuer aus der Tiefe: Directed by Paul Ziller. With Corin Nemec, Miriam McDonald, Daniel Wisler, Camille Sullivan. Mythic creatures emerge from the sea to feast on the residents of a fishing village.
“Being a fisherman is a difficult job, particularly during a rough storm. But things can only get worse when a sea beast decides to make your crew its meal. In this small fishing town, the sea beast and his family follow the seamen ashore… to destroy every living thing in their path. How do you stop a creature that you cannot see? u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis happens to be another film in the u0026quot;Maneateru0026quot; series of films, which started off with vicious animals (blood monkeys, crocs, and more) and has ventured into some strange territory. They recently came out with u0026quot;Yetiu0026quot;, for example (you can read the review for this on Killer Reviews). And now, the sea beast, formerly titled u0026quot;Troglodyteu0026quot; (which is grossly misleading). Itu0026#39;s u0026quot;Jawsu0026quot; meets science fiction meets u0026quot;Raptor Islandu0026quot;, which is either awesome or horrible depending on how you feel about those three things.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePersonally, I love u0026quot;Jawsu0026quot; and science fiction has its good points, but u0026quot;Raptor Islandu0026quot; is a CG piece of offal. Now, to be fair, u0026quot;Sea Beastu0026quot; isnu0026#39;t as poorly animated as u0026quot;Raptor Islandu0026quot;, but they fit in the same category. But weu0026#39;ve come to expect that from the Maneater series. Cheesy plot, minimal gore (though this one does alright), little or no nudity or cursing. Your basic TV-ready film. And donu0026#39;t get me wrong, if you want an hour and a half of beer-swilling entertainment, this film will fir your needs. But if you try to dissect it, youu0026#39;ll claw your eyes out. It simply doesnu0026#39;t make much sense.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you want to watch this film, my best recommendation is that you try to catch it on TV or borrow it from a friend or rent it. There is no reason to purchase this film. It doesnu0026#39;t have a lot of replay value, and there are literally no special features (unless you count scene selection). No subtitles, no languages, no audio commentary, nothing. Itu0026#39;s about as bare bones as DVDs come, which is rare these days.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBottom line: cheap, cheesy entertainment. If thatu0026#39;s what youu0026#39;re into (and I guess some people are because they keep making these movies), go for it. If you want more substance or a good scare, this is not the film for you. Seriously, watch u0026quot;Jawsu0026quot; for the tenth time before you see this if you want a quality man versus fish story.”
