Crow takes a liking to smokeless tobacco until Pearl's love deprivation tests give him abandonment issues that only hot pads and a staple remover can cure. While fishing and risking explosive decompression, Crow verbally declares world domination through flesh eating shoes. Servo and Crow then try convincing Mike unsuccessfully that all scenes in every movie would be better if the actors/actresses were nude. Mike shows his defiance again when he argues against the protective cannisters at the end of the movie - apparently, Mike doesn't care if his 20' party sub gets ruined while crawling through the Amazon jungle. Finally, Pearl reveals her most diabolic plot yet - the Mer-Monkey, but a visit from Barnicle Bob proves the opposite effects of the experiment. Written by Titus Yorick

No Plot!

Unsure what the deal is with the synopsis here on IMDb, but it's all wrong. This film is about some killer fish call sargasm and shark and some others shown in bleached out red color and a creepy scientist voice over out of an ed wood movie who turn half into one of these.

Also IMDb says this was made in 1999 but it sure looks like late 60s or early 70s to me. In fact it appears quite a bit was filmed silent and dubbed with voice over like many cheapo films from the era.

So the mad scientist turns into an aquatic animal that looks like the elephant man! Then he goes on a rampage with a tiny spray bottle spraying other fish.

I swear, this reminds me completely of ed wood. Nothing makes sense at all. And the monster costume apparently didn't provide good vision cuz it keeps tripping!

It's filled with tons of stock footage of fish in aquariums. Unlike ed wood, however, this is not bad-good. It sort of wears on you. Can't recommend.
