Goofs

To help Kelly from the sinking boat, Jake dove under water holding a walkie talkie. It would have been impossible to use the walkie talkie because it should be shorted from being soaked in water. Jake however, was able to call his Mom on the walkie talkie to drag them from away from the sinking boat. As equipment used on the Sheriff's Dept. patrol boat on the water it would make sense the hand held two way radio Jake used was a waterproof Marine model walkie talkie like the Motorala EX560 XLS which meets JSI4 standards (submersible to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes) .

Stylish, and creepy
27 November 2019 | by jaredloveSee all my reviews

For one, the only other films with fish that scared me was jaws, this one is like jaws had babies and went mad. this film is definatly a modern day horror classic, and stands out around many other films, around this era 3/4
