Storyline

A mad scientist (and apparent former Nazi) unleashes his master plan: to transform himself into a mutated walking catfish, gain revenge on those who have spurned him, and kidnap nubile young women to similarly transform so that he can breed. Or something like that. Written by <crow_steve@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In an interview, writer Ron Kivett stated that the inspiration for the movie came from an article he read about a species of 'walking' catfish that could live both in water and on land. The article theorized that the fish were possibly a mutation, and Kivett thought it was an intriguing idea for a story. Doctor Leopold refers to the same species of fish in his endless voice-over narrative in the movie. See more »

Terrible
11 March 2000 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

My teenage son bet me that this movie, once viewed by me, would be the worst movie I'd ever seen. As a lifetime movie buff I found this highly unlikely.

I was wrong.
