Storyline

As a hurricane rages outside, the small but experienced crew of an oil drilling rig settles in to ride out the storm. Isolated on the rig, their calm is short lived when a crew member goes missing and an extensive search proves futile. Slowly, they discover that a deadly creature is stalking the skeleton crew, eliminating them one by one. Surrounded by nothing but raging ocean, their communication severed and no way off the rig, the roughnecks try to survive the stormy night with an unrelenting force of death hunting them down.

Goofs

In the storyline description it says that the crew has no way off the rig. But drill rigs are usually equipped with at least two lifeboats that can each hold the entire crew. And in the opening shot of the movie an orange lifeboat is clearly visible on the side of the rig. See more »

Andrew: I've never seen anything like it before, man! It had claws... it kind of looked like the Mexican Chubra thing. You know, the Mexican thing.
Rodriguez: I'm Puerto Rican, asshole!

Dumb
7 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Movie was a total waste of time it has nothing but crappy camera angles and terrible sound also the effects were dumb. I highly doubt that the special effects artists from Alien vs. Predator had anything to do with this... ..It was a waste of $10 when I could have just gotten Billy Madison for the same amount and got some good laughs instead of feelings of this was terrible. If you want to get this movie I say wait until you see it go on sale me and my friend saw it and thought we were interested until we put it in and sat down and watched it. I see the only reasons to get this are bragging rights about having more movies than anyone else or if you are interested in collecting everything that has an actor that was in a Disney show/movie.
