After six teens graduate from high school, they decide to spend one final outing with each other on a rowboat in a lake before they go their separate ways. However, after a man-eating fish kills one of them and destroys their oars, they find themselves trapped in the middle of the lake. Soon afterwards, they realize they have to determine who is to be thrown into the water as a distraction, so the rest of the group can paddle to shore. Written by
Signs of bad: 1. Cover is more scary than the what's in the movie.
Called false advertising. 2. Usual no-name studio, "Chiller Films".
Usual no-name $100/day actors (OK, a few TV spots and similar
cheap-to-make movies for their credits.) 3. Usual dumbed down
stereotypic plot hooks: Teens in car going to a remote site to party,
with lots of boring scenes of van driving on road. 4. Usual teen mix of
hot chicks, jock, nerd/geek, cool quiet type guy. 5. Usual stranded
setup with no cell reception (so overused there are actual web sites
that list all the no-cell-reception movies). 6. Usual alcohol, usual
dumb decisions, usual tension amongst are doomed group. 7. So they get
boat stranded on some small lake/reservoir. Only stranded in the sense
that they can't figure out how to paddle a hundred yards to shore. 8.
Monster is one, and only one (reproduction is not in the cards) large
catfish (they actually do get that big) with eyes on the top of it's
head (why during their many chances our dummies didn't poke them out is
beyond me). Eyes should have been on the side for a scavenging bottom
feeder. Anyway, it's scary attribute are some teeth that are
functionally pointless except for snagging on sunken trees. 9. No scary
or gory scenes except for a minimal amount of prosthetic blood tossed
