Terrible & unbearable
3 April 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

De Zeemeerman is by far the worst picture I've seen this year, and certainly one of the crappiest movies I have ever seen. There are a lot of horrid films where you can laugh at how funny and bad they are, but unfortunately this isn't one of them. Director Frank Herrebout and producer Rob Houwer should be ashamed of making this movie. De Zeemeerman has an extremely poor script, terrible special effects and the most appalling acting I've seen in years. This piece of trash might even take on Honneponnetje for the title of worst Dutch movie in history.

Even if you like bad movies, don't bother with this one. There are millions of better ways to spend almost two hours of your life than this. Go see Plan 9 from Outer Space, or Howard the Duck, or even Battlefield Earth, but don't waste your time on this abominable piece of rubbish.
