    You know what, I liked this. Lots of cheap stuff, but entertaining and very creative. 6/10 12 years 7 months ago

    What if Roger Corman produced The Creature from the Black Lagoon in 1980? Monster (Humanoids from the Deep) - as it is called on the title card - takes place in a fishing village out in California, but it gave me strong Atlantic Canada vibes (I had to check). The industry, of course, but also the conflict with Native fishermen, and the hoedown music too. Not so common around here is the race of killer fishmen coming to shore to steal our women (that last, rapey element is something I could do without, but the movie certainly doesn't skimp on gore and nudity, so it was perhaps inevitable). We were definitely warned this would happen. Genetically modified salmon eaten by some kind of predator (or something, comic book science isn't a science) has given rise to slimy and rather well-realized fishmen, and the OVER-FISHING of salmon in the area (which is part of the humans' plot) has forced them on land to rampage during the local festival. As icky as the sex'n'violence exploitation blend can be, this is pretty fun. 3 years 7 months ago
