Storyline

Gruesome findings in the middle of the ocean and mysterious occurrences off the Florida Coast terrify the locals, forcing Sheriff Gordon and marine biologists, Dr Stella Dickens and Dr Bob Hogan, to investigate. More and more, as the news spreads like wildfire, the two scientists find evidence of a terrible underwater monstrosity that is devouring unsuspecting fishermen and swimmers alike, and that somehow, the West Ocean Institute has something to do with the rogue beast that roams the seabed. But, what kind of aquatic, man-eating terror stains the waters red? Written by Nick Riganas

Fair Movie, GREAT MONSTER
6 October 2002 | by lordzedd-2See all my reviews

You have got to see this foreign film, the concept is a company genetically crossed a octopus with the DNA of a prehistoric shark. Now it has escaped and is terrorizing the boating community. The heroes only has a certain amount of time before the DNA multiplies and spawns into hundreds. The plot is major weak, the acting is not Oscar caliber ether, but the great effects makes up for the lack of story and acting.

MY RATING: OUT OF 10 STARS (10 BEING BEST)

6 AND A HALF STARS ****** 1/2
