Did You Know?

The Sea Beasts are actually based at the Deep Ones created by H.P. Lovecraft.See more »
Factual errors: When Will McKenna starts shooting the sea beast with his handgun there is no gun movement and you can clearly see that the gun didn't throw the bullets when he is shooting. And no flames are visible at the gun's barrel when he is shooting, you can only heat the sound of gunfire.See more »

Routine creature feature has some fun moments, 3 January 2010
Author: MartianOctocretr5 from Redondo Beach, CA

Screened on SyFy as Sea Beast (Trogolodyte on IMDb), probably because it's a hybrid of so many other creatures, both sea beasts and land beasts. Look for elements of Jaws, Alien, Jurassic Park, Lake Placid, and Predator, among others.

It's fun, and just what you expect from a SyFy original offering (at least it's free). Low budget, loosely jointed, questionable acting, cheap CGI effects, and unresolved items at the end. But the creatures are pretty well designed, and the lead actor, the fisherman guy, does pretty well. There's actually urgency in his voice. Not so his daughter and her paper thin character friends. Drama 1 drop outs. The one-on-one fights between the teens and baby creatures are absolutely hilarious--in particular the one where the sea beast pulls himself into a rock, lol. That single moment is worth the price of admission. The siege on the cabin has some great visuals, too.

Most important for a movie is to entertain, and this one does. It holds your attention, and some scary scenes manage to sprinkle in amongst all the craziness. Yes, it resorts to some horror clichés like the blood spurting out of a neck bit when somebody gets decapped. Also, you never quite know what spawned these things. But it's good enough for at least for a few laughs.
