An abandoned oil rig in the middle of the North Sea. Dr. Christine Hansen is charged with the task of testing an experimental cleaning fluid which could revolutionize the oil industry. Hired to carry out the tests is Jacob Rasmussen and his rough and ready crew of deconstruction engineers. But within hours one of them is missing under suspicious circumstances. Things go from bad to worse when environmental activist Mickey Hennessey and his hard-bitten associates seize control of the rig, taking everybody on board hostage. But very soon oil workers and environmentalists will be compelled to join forces in an evolutionary battle for survival. For a savage new life-form has made its home on the rig. And it is hungry.

Did You Know?


Nefarious junior scientist Dr. Willis is played by screenwriter and assistant producer Paul Mackman, largely because there was nobody else around at the time. Mackman had considerable difficulties with the elaborate dialogue he had written for the character, but had nobody but himself to blame. See more »

Guilt trips, misplaced scenes and straw men
12 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Early on, one crew member finds that the untested cleaner to be dangerous. Or something. Then there's another scene of him being told about how a previous team member died. Then they return to the previous scene and he's still holding the document giving a warning but hides it so other team members won't find out. I'm not sure what was supposed to be there instead of the second scene and I'm no quantum physicist but I don't think him existing in two places was intentional since there's only one of him afterwards.

Since this horror movie takes place on an oil mining rig, we're subjected to dialogue about how mining oil is immoral and such. The company manager is a sleazy man who isn't bothered by letting employees die to cover up his experiments.

Boredom and frustration await anyone who watches this movie.
