Trivia

Cariba Heine and Phoebe Tonkin starred together in the Australian TV show H20: Just Add Water. They played two out of the three mermaid friends Rikki Chadwick and Cleo Sertori. However, in this film, they don't share any screen time till the end of the film and they do not exchange any dialogue between each other. When Martin Sacks' character walks in the store after locking Phoebe's character in the car, a board has a Melon named as H20 Melon. See more »

Goofs

When the supermarket gets flooded, the floating rubbish consists of mainly empty bottles which would have had to have been empty prior to the tsunami. See more »

Tina: Cause It's not sure what we are. It's curious.

A Good Stab
14 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a good stab at a shark thriller.

I was actually pretty impressed with a few of the actors. Mind you I find a lot of Australian films to have really decent acting in them even with unknowns, regardless of the plot.

An original concept for a shark movie, good use of lighting and tension, and a few nice little plot twists.

A great balance of antagonists and protagonists in a "bunch of strangers" stranded setting.

The filming quality and mechanics of the feature are superior to the budget spent, in my opinion.

I found this to be a not bad at all Friday night watch. Great "BAGGAPOPCORNER" if you are in one of those moods where you aren't sure what to watch.
