I'll have the Frankenfish with a touch of lemon please....
"Frankenfish" might be the best direct-to-video flick I've ever seen. Although the plot is feeble, it's briskly paced. It doesn't give you too much time to think about such things as why the protagonists would take refuge on houseboats after deducing that there is a killer "something" in the water. Why not head for land? The digital effects weren't so bad either, especially in one scene where the "frankenfish" does an amazing stunt to snatch one victim right out of the air. You'll recognize all of these characters from other films (although not necessarily better ones): the earthy bayou rednecks, the mystical witch lady, the shell-shocked ruffian, the wealthy big-game hunter, etc. Yawnsville as far as that goes, but all of the actors here know what kind of movie they're in, and they are all game.
Recommended despite all the warning bells that will go off in your head when you see it in the video store. Just remember to turn off the brain first.
