Storyline

A small town, desperate to recover from hard economic times, is under threat when voracious Snakehead fish mutate and survive previous lake chemical poisonings. The fish transform from pests to predators when human growth hormones are dumped into the local lake in the hopes of reviving the local fishing industry. Thriving on the hormones, the Snakehead fish grow to monstrous proportions, devouring everything within reach. Capable of moving and eating on land, they are forced to leave the now barren lake in a desperate search for food - animal, vegetable or human. Written by Anonymous

Where is MST3000 when you need it?
8 December 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

The gang at MST3K would have had a field day with this movie. It has it all: bad plot, bad directing, bad effects, bad acting, and famous faces. With Bruce Boxleitner, William B. Davis and Carol Alt, the number of Scarecrow and Mrs. King, X-Files and supermodel jokes are endless (not to mention Babylon 5 and Tron). To be fair to Boxleitner, his acting was fine, but the number of long, drawn out scenes of him driving up and parking his car are worthy of ridicule, MST-style.

As has been noted, this movie rips off every other "animal attacks" movie ever made. Every cliché is here:

  • Mutant "man made" monster: check




  • Local sheriff: check




  • Sheriff's child in peril: check




  • Unconcerned politician: check




  • New love interest partner: check




  • Goofy teenagers: check




  • Slow attacks that escalate without reason: check




  • Illogical and downright stupid behavior of every human: check




  • Dumb monsters that show intelligence for plot reasons: check




  • Improbably, yet highly effective single solution: check




Actually there was one cliché that I either missed, or they just didn't do, but that's the "the end?" ending where something survived. Maybe I just stopped watching too soon.
