When a local begins fishing with dynamite in Bog Lake, something a bit larger pops to the surface: a green, bug-eyed mutant monster awakened from a long sleep, which promptly begins killing and eating fishermen who stumble across its lair. When biologist Ginny Glenn discovers the creature's evolutionary nature, the local sheriff decides to use most methods to destroy the tenacious beast. Written by Ørnås

Rather weak monster movie featuring dumb looking monster.
12 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

If you can not make your suit scary and it looks fake and crappy do not even bother shooting the film to begin with as then you will save yourself the heartache of having to read horrible reviews of your movie and you will have spared the viewers who sat through the movie the pain and agony of having to sit through it. Though when looking at the monster in this flick it sort of looks like the monster that was originally supposed to be in the movie "Predator" before they thought it looked to weak and they made the smart move and switched it with what is now a well known alien monster of the cinema. This movie has what it says, a bog with a monster that kills. Nothing to graphic which is another problem. You are making a b-grade horror movie, why make it so weak? The audience you should be trying to attract is horror movie lovers and in them you should target the one's that like lots of gore! So bring in the buckets of blood and chicken and cow livers for the kills as this audience if they get their gore will overlook a weak looking monster. What we get though is a rather weak monster killing, a rather strange plot twist, a rather humorous way to lure the monster out of hiding, and an ending that is typical with monster horror movies.
