Storyline

Several boats are torn apart, badly wrecked corpses are washed ashore... something horrible is out in the Caribbean sea. The teeth marks on the bodies don't lead to any known animal, so scientist Dr. Stella Dickens suspects it's a so far unknown life form and strives to catch it alive. She doesn't know yet that ruthless scientists have genetically created this creature as a bioweapon, or that it has been designed to reproduce by asexual means. And that the company she works for created the creature and will stop at nothing to keep their secret. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Silly "Jaws" Rip-Off---European Style.
10 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A prehistoric monster known as the "Shark rosso nell'oceano" (translated into "Devilfish") is terrorizing the waters of the Caribbean as boats are destroyed completely and corpses start popping up everywhere. Really stupid venture from the European cinema that tried, unsuccessfully I might add, to capitalize on the world-wide phenomena that the "Jaws" franchise had. A bunch of episodic situations, a distracting love story, cheap visual effects and cheaper performers ultimately allows "Devilfish" to go out to sea long before its running time ends. Turkey (0 stars out of 5).
