Beneath (2013)

Directed by Larry Fessenden. Written by Tony Daniel and Brian D. Smith. Starring Mackenzie Rosman, Daniel Zovatto, Bonnie Dennison, Chris Conroy, Griffin Newman and Jonny Orsini.

Plot: a group of teenagers unwittingly anger a strange fish attracted to human blood.

Six teenagers head out to a secluded lake. On the way they meet an old man that tells them they must respect the lake. They say they will, but yeah right! They drink, they litter, they make a mess and a strange fish makes them pay. Especially after they get stranded in the middle of the lake with no oars.

Thirty minutes on that boat though and they turn into Lord of the Flies. There is no Freddy Claws. As a matter of fact, the fish doesn’t even kill people directly, people kill people, the fish is just the instrument most often used. The story was kinda shit, too, so if you’re looking for Piranha or Jaws, back away slowly and watch something else.

It wasn’t all bad though. It does get points for the freaky looking fish. And the acting isn’t bad even though the characters are terrible.

My score: 34. DJ’s score: 43.
