Flawed cheesy creature feature
11 December 2014 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

After a rash of disappearances, a wildlife expert and the local sheriff team up with a group of residents to combat the gigantic, mutated eel running loose through the local swamplands before it eats the whole town.

This turned out to be quite the flawed if still slightly enjoyable creature feature. There's some rather enjoyable moments here, most of which comes from the fact that the creature is clearly out and rampaging around quite early so there's plenty of action scenes within this. From the opening attack on the search party in the swamps to the brief attack scenes around town as it attacks the locals to the rather cheesy finale where it seemingly keeps coming back despite several attempts to fully contain and kill it while the creature is chasing after them for even more action-packed sequences, so this one dos manage to contain some rather impressive and fun moments that allow for a pretty enjoyable pace here as these are spread liberally enough throughout the film to avoid any kind of prolonged boredom. Along with plenty of action is plenty of exciting kills here which are based on the creature's rather fun tactic of simply going for the kill every time out so it's ravenous behavior makes for a rather gory and blood-soaked time with plenty of limbs being gnawed off, bodies ripped apart, bites and much more here which make for a really good time. These are enough to hold it aloft over it's few minor flaws, most notably the utterly ridiculous and abysmal CGI rampant throughout here. Not only is this patently unimpressive and obvious in it's fake-ness, the fact that it also manages to employ other big giveaways to it's source is found throughout here including the creature randomly appearing out of nowhere simply because the attack calls for it, changing size and dimensions frequently and barely interacting with the outside world around it so there's never any doubt this pixelated, cheesy-looking beast is anything but realistic. Likewise, the other big flaw here is the obvious use of character-padding to max out a storyline that really shouldn't yield a movie this long so there's a lot of excess story lines drummed up simply to provide more characters for it to kill off which really shouldn't be so as they simply scream out in their attempt to pad out the running time. These are somewhat detrimental to this but not enough to really lower it.
