Storyline

An abandoned oil rig in the middle of the North Sea. Dr. Christine Hansen is charged with the task of testing an experimental cleaning fluid which could revolutionize the oil industry. Hired to carry out the tests is Jacob Rasmussen and his rough and ready crew of deconstruction engineers. But within hours one of them is missing under suspicious circumstances. Things go from bad to worse when environmental activist Mickey Hennessey and his hard-bitten associates seize control of the rig, taking everybody on board hostage. But very soon oil workers and environmentalists will be compelled to join forces in an evolutionary battle for survival. For a savage new life-form has made its home on the rig. And it is hungry.

Welcome to the Food Chain

From the opening scene, I knew this would be among the worst movies of all time. I was not disappointed, as the production values of segments made for high school television stations are much higher. With that said, the Sasha character is hot, and what can one expect- it's 3 AM and I'm watching the sci-fi channel. "I'm sorry I smacked you earlier" seems like a great line at this hour. Another great quote: "Just because I don't live with you any more doesn't mean I've forgotten how to live" (I seem to remember an ex-girlfriend saying something like that). Also: "Hi, I'm Erik Estrada...start planning your future by owning Arkansas real estate" (Ok, that was from a commercial).
