Trivia

The opening sequence is a lovely homage to Jaws (1975). Both films open in 1975 with some teenagers going skinny dipping and one young man staying on the water's edge. There are several unnerving underwater shots creating a mood of tension before the teenagers are scared off by the riverboat. However, this time, the killer in the water is the chemicals. See more »

It feels like this movie is being swept under the rug. I won't say by whom, but I will remove my tin foil hat now. Fantastic fantastic film. This movie really rocked my world. It took me a few days to calm down I was so enraged at the subject matter. Unbelievable crimes against humanity. But because Dupont makes 75 billion dollars a year nobody can touch them. Not even the government. Evvryone should see this. Very thrilling and well made. Mark Rufallo can go fly a kite though. He's the same as he always is
