Father and daughters return to home town in midst of killing spree by monstrous fish. Comedy and horror abound as family saves town
22 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a classic genre film of the 1960s era with a fast moving pace, interesting and some lovable and not-lovable characters, and a great job of editing that makes the movie-going experience exciting and entertaining.

The story is primarily set on Maryland's Eastern Shore and depicts a summer vacation resort that is struggle to maintain financial viability. Pets begin to mysteriously disappear, and then the abandoned car of two teenagers is found on a lonely roar.

The mayor, already involved in some nefarious plot to pad her bank account is faced with a crisis when she discovers mysterious carnivorous fish who can live on land who indiscriminately track down man and beast.

The sheriff wants to report the incursion while the mayor wants to keep it quiet to protect her financial interest while claiming that the town will cease to exist when summer vacationers decide to go elsewhere.

The impact of bloodly scenes is softened by the clever juxtaposition of humor making the film presentable to children in the 8-10 age range.

This film is a lot of fun with some subtle gags and one-liners that are likely to tickle the fancy of some "sohistocated" movie-goers.
