Did You Know?

Director Peter Atencio decided to pay homage to the 'Alien' franchise by naming the drilling company 'Weyland drilling Corp' an using a similar logo throughout the filmSee more »
Factual errors: 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 »
Faulkner:Look! I don't know what this thing is, but it's not here for food. It likes to kill us and it's doing it... one by one.See more »

Low Budget... Yes Great Movie... Nah, 7 October 2010
Author: Chris from United States

I'm usually a huge fan of cheap low budget movies. And just as a previous reviewer said, I also thought the monster was a gigantic sea creature... but it turned out to be some tiny monster that looked not much larger than a little kid.

You can almost always tell the cheaper-made movies apart from how they show the monster. It's always... show an arm here... a leg there... a scene with some teeth and claws, etc. However, what makes this movie stand apart from all of that is this... You NEVER actually really clearly the monster(s) at all. I figured that maybe at the end you will be able to clearly see it... but no... it was inside a dark tunnel so you can't even really see it clearly.. unless of course you pause the movie... then you can sort of see it... kind of... hahahah Aside from being kind of predictable and the characters doing illogical things... it wasn't all that bad, I guess. I did manage to watch all of it.
