Better Than Expected!
25 April 2003 | by (Houston, TX USA) – See all my reviews

I recently watched this film, with only a vague memory of the original. I remember the original being very distasteful. However, this remake seemed far more professional in terms of its actors and the actual production. The opening scene reminded me of "Jurassic Park." Without giving anything away, creatures that are half fish and half man are loose in the waters of this small fishing town. Emma Samms plays the scientist who is there to stop the apparent killings. What ensues is a wonderful quest, where Robert Carradine, a father whose daughter goes missing, must work with the daughter's boyfriend, played by Justin Walker from "Clueless," to defeat the creatures and uncover the mystery as to why the creatures are taking all the women. Clint Howard plays a good police interrogator, and the best bad guy ever, Mark Ralston, who once raped Tim Robbins in "Shawshank Redemption," plays a great villain here, who by the end, you actually like and feel sorry for. I just saw Mark Ralston on CBS' "Hunter" movie, where he was also quite good. The direction of the actors in this "Humanoids" remake stands out too. Mainly, in terms of the quality acting and the big film feel, which on a Roger Corman picture I would think would be nearly impossible. In short, the better acting, cinematography, plot, and humor elevates this film above the first one. I recommend that those who like a good horror film check this one out.
