Storyline

Uptight and stressful Mr. Olivares is in need for some much needed rest and, on doctors orders, takes a holiday, to the seaside, to relax and enjoy himself for a while. In doing so, he unwittingly vacates in the same location where the beach is invaded by sea demons who rip, tear and mutilate its inhabitants. This doesn't seem to bother the anxiety ridden man until his Walkman's batteries run-dry and the real hell is unleashed...brutally. Written by Cinema_Fan

Brutal Fun
5 May 2014 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

A man goes to his doctor and told what he needs in life is to relax more . Taking his advice the man goes to relax on a crowded beach and take in the sea air . As it turns out he couldn't have picked a worse day for a beach trip because monsters swarm out of the water and attack everyone

There's something unsettling about the seashore . When I lived on the Isle of Bute I spent many a sad , lonely day trekking the coastline . There's no more beautiful sight than staring across a calm blue sea on a hot Summer day . . The opposite can hold true as well . Standing on a deserted shoreline you become aware of just how alone you are and a primeval instinctive fear overtakes you almost as if an ancient terror is about to make its presence seen , a feeling not helped if you've seen the classic DOCTOR WHO story from 1972 The Sea Devils , a story that had a much bigger impact than Spielberg's famous shark film a few years later

I came in to this short thinking I'd be watching a serious horror film . The freeze frame avatar showed a bikini babe covered in blood so jumped to the conclusion this was going to be a gore-fest . Make no mistake this is gore ridden splatter-punk make up driven horror but one with its tongue very firmly in cheek . Think of the early works of Peter Jackson where you're invited and encouraged to laugh at the on screen mutilation and you've got the idea . One other work I was instantly reminded of was of another Spanish short called FIST OF Jesus and low and behold both films had the same director Adrian Cardona which comes as no great surprise since both shorts are identical in feel and execution . If you've seen either film you've seen both of them which isn't really a criticism but you would perhaps think the director might try something different in future shorts
