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.

Trivia

Nefarious junior scientist Dr. Willis is played by screenwriter and assistant producer Paul Mackman, largely because there was nobody else around at the time. Mackman had considerable difficulties with the elaborate dialogue he had written for the character, but had nobody but himself to blame. See more »

Goofs

If Bolivia did have a coast, it would be to the Pacific Ocean and it would be impossible that a body lost at sea in the Pacific would end up on the Moroccan coast, which is on the Atlantic, in northwestern Africa. See more »

Just when you thought the place was clean.
5 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This Sci-Fi creature feature could easily be flushed. The story line is just too familiar to be that interesting. An out of commission oil rig in the North Sea is being given an enzyme clean with some highly hazardous chemicals. The oil company sends Dr. Christine Hansen(Saskia Gould)to the site to see what the delay in completion is. No sooner than she arrives and realizes the cleaning agent has not been mixed properly renegade environmental activists try to commandeer the abandoned rig. Too soon it is discovered that the bio-hazard chemicals have helped spawn a big ass eel-like parasite with intentions to have all occupants for lunch, dinner and a snack. The enemies put aside their differences to work together in hopes of surviving the attacks of the savage new life form. Other cast members: Conrad Whitaker, Michelle Acunda, Gary Condes, Luke Spenser and G.W. Stevens.
