31 Days of Horror Challenge: Movie #13
A medical examiner and a biologist are sent to investigate the death of a fisherman in the Louisiana swamp. They discover that the swamp monsters attacking the locals are actually genetically engineered Chinese Snake-head fish, owned by a wealthy hunter.
Not bad for a made-for-tv creature feature. The writing and dialogue were preposterous. The biologist would suggest a thing, or make a dogmatic statement without any sort of examination or evidence, and it would simply be true. Not that I was expecting much else, but some sort of effort at fake science would have been appreciated. I loved the voodoo bits, which seemed to be taken every bit as seriously as the “science.” I even loved when the lady biologist tried to mac on the fisherman’s daughter. The puppets/props of the croc head and the giant fish were amusing.
It was entertaining, but not great. My favorite part was the the ending scene. Usually I quite enjoy cheesy creature features, so maybe I’ll give it another chance at some point.
