Finally A Decent Sci-Fi Channel Movie!, 10 February 2006
Author: MetalGeek from New Jersey, USA

I came upon "Frankenfish" on the Sci-Fi Channel on a night when there was literally nothing else on TV and thought to myself "With a title like that it's got to at least be worth a look." I half expected to laugh myself silly but I was pleasantly surprised at how well done "Frankenfish" really was. Plenty of gore (even in an edited-for-TV version!), neat set pieces (I've never seen a "town" of floating house boats before) and man, when you say that "it hits the fan" in "Frankenfish," it LITERALLY hits the fan, as in a bad guy being splattered by the business end of a Bayou fan-boat. The creature effects are pretty obviously CGI in the long shots but aside from that minor complaint, I thoroughly enjoyed "Frankenfish" and wouldn't mind adding it to my video collection. Fans of Joe Dante's classic PIRANHA, the JAWS series, and other killer-aquatic-creature films should have a blast with this one. No, it's not a GREAT movie by any means, but it is a fun one. Give FRANKENFISH a try!
