Humanoids From The Deep Is Good Fun
13 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I like most about this remake of the schlocky, exploitative original is that this film offers an explanation for why these mutant creatures exist. Granted, the explanation is pure sci-fi, but you buy it in the context of the film. Teenagers protesting the local fishery and the father-daughter relationship are added here with nice results. It feels contemporary. The creature effects are good, and the director does a good job of keeping them in the dark, something the original did not. Robert Carradine sports a beard and actually looks like a gruff fisherman, the antithesis of his "Revenge of the Nerds" character. All in all, this picture had good drama, good dialogue, tense attack scenes, and very good comic relief. Give this one a chance. It does not disappoint. Lastly, I watched the original film recently. To all those on this site that like the original "Humanoids," stop romanticizing a bad movie. You need to watch it again. It does not hold up. The remake is definitely better all around.
