Hackneyed low-budget beast-in-the-water flick, but well-done for what it is
9 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Released in 2007, "Eye of the Beast" chronicles events at an island community on Lake Winnipeg when a giant squid decides to utilize the citizenry for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Alexandra Castillo and James Van Der Beek star as the sheriff and marine scientist who team-up to track down the beast once it becomes clear it's for real. Arne MacPherson is on hand as an unfriendly captain of a fishing schooner.

While the plot is trite in that it combines the plots of Peter Benchley's "Jaws" (1975) and "The Beast" (1996), the movie's surprisingly well-done. The cast is good and takes the material seriously, so you find yourself entering into the world of the characters. Both Castillo and Van Der Beek make for quality protagonists. I guess it helps that Alexandra is easy on the eyes. Moreover, the Lake Winnipeg locations are a pleasant surprise. So, even though you might have seen a thousand similar flicks, "Eye of the Beast" fills the bill if you're in the mood for a decent Grade B monster-in-the-water picture. And, if you're not, why are you reading this?

The film runs 90 minutes and was shot in Gimli and Selkirk, Manitoba, at the south end of Winnipeg Lake, with additional stuff done in Winnipeg. It was directed by Gary Yates from a script by Mark Mullin.
