Despite the fact that I have been a fan of Edward Albert's since a teenager, this film is hardly worth mentioning in his filmography. Albert plays a captain of a sailboat for hire, catering to what looks like rejects from the Laguna Beach set. The movie is pointless, and irritatingly confusing but just silly enough for you to get a chuckle from the fun you are going to be making of it. Of course there is the clichéd scenes dear to every post Jaws rip off that include sharks, and islands. But in this film, these features were especially badly done. One wonders why animal activists didn't applaud the makers of Sea of Fear for making the fish more agreeable than the people. Oh, let me also mention that there is a preposterous "pirate" song rendition added as "atmosphere". I could not understand the words, nor could I possible believe Mr. Albert was at all serious when he gruffs his way through a couple of stanzas. I am not so sure the actor who played "Tom", singing it at the end of the film felt quite the same way. Anyhow, the actors, aside from Mr. Albert are unknown and unknowable, and I hope they did something creative and perhaps compassionate with the money they earned from this stinker. Goodness knows,the producers had no mercy on us.
