Brian Yuzna is beginning to lose his touch., 16 May 2006
Author: Andreas Johansson from Sweden

Brian Yuzna is a director who almost never has disappointed me. He's inventive and he knows what fans wants. The only ones that I haven't liked is "The Progeny" and "Tarzan: The Epic Adventures TV Movie". But after moving to Spain to join Filmax developed label Fantastic Factory things have begun to go downwards. I really liked "Beyond Re-Animator" but his "Rottweiler" was just terrible. I was very, very disappointed with that movie. And now we have "Beneath Still Waters".

The story is about a water filled ghost town with a dark past. Strange things are happening and people are showing up dead. A female reporter and a newly arrived photo journalist are teaming up to investigate the surroundings. Sounds pretty good to me.

First I must say I liked it a whole lot better than "Rottweiller" but it still left me very unsatisfied. Things aren't developed very good, the characters are not that interesting, the gore is there but it leaves much more to be desired, there's too little monster action, we've seen the ending hundreds of time before etc.

I'm not saying I didn't like it, I was just expecting more. Some good diving footage, one cool monster, some tension and atmosphere, a cool beginning, Diana Peñalver ("Braindead") in a small part. But overall a rather tame effort by Yuzna. You can do better.
