Homemade garbage
15 January 2013 | by kiwigoldfishSee all my reviews

What can I say about this? It starts like a found footage film, dipping into what could almost be an homage to The Ring. Then loses its way even more. We are subjected to repeated footage and aimless progression towards the inevitable "shark" attack. I don't know if the dialogue was as trite and as forced in the original Japanese as it is in the subtitles, but it's pretty dire.

I can only assume this is someone's backyard attempt at a new take on Jaws. As such, it's probably fine if the intent was to show his mates over a few beers.

If you're going to watch it, I suggest getting the DVD so at least you'll get a nice coaster for your troubles.
