Since I'm not a huge fan of this genre, I wasn't expecting much from this flick. However, since I have a weak spot for Joe Dante's work, I still wanted to check it out. First of all, I was quite surprising to discover that John Sayles was one of the writers on this movie (Apparently, he used the profits from the film to fund his own projects. It was also his scriptwriting debut). Eventually, since... read more

" It's a downright cheese-fest and a B-movie to it's core, but it's incredibly fun for those exact reasons. Throw in some likeable characters, a great cast of cult stars and some genuinely intense moments and you have one of the best B-horrors of it's day."

" The Ups: One of the better rip-offs that were made after the success of "Jaws". The idea of actually many hungry killer fishes eating people slowly away is actually even more gruesome than "Jaws" as well if I start to think about it.

Great supporting help from beloved cult actors and actresses, but it is not as funny as it could have been as the movie treats the premise too serious sometimes. "
