Trivia

While the movie might have been filmed in Ontario, Canada, the film takes place in Maine. About 3:30 minutes into the film, you can see the the name of the boat, Lover, and its home port, Winterport, ME, painted on the transom. Reinforcing this fact, is Barnard Hughes's Down East accent for his character, boat captain Andy Borchard. See more »

gave me nightmares it was so scary
17 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I will never forget that monster. This is the only movie that truly scared the hell out of me, for years. I remember how eerie and scary it looked in that boat room and how it sounded with all of the mud splattered everywhere and the look on peoples faces. Its interesting, because I could not remember the name of this movie; I looked it up in google and found it thru another site, but it seems that many couldn't remember this movie's name, but there seems to be a universal point of recollection of this movie is when the monsters hand got cut off by the slamming door and about the salt. I remember my mom did everything get me to stop watching it, but I was glued. That night, and many after...I had nightmares about that monster. I don't know if I would want to see it again, tho....some things are supposed to stay where they are at that time. I think this is one of them.
