Editorial Reviews

When a group of young friends commemorating their high school graduation take a trip to the remote Black Lake, their celebration turns into a nightmare. Trapped in a leaking boat with no oars, the teens face the ultimate test of friendship and sacrifice during a terror-stricken fight for survival when they find something is living beneath the surface.

Daniel Zovatto (Innocence), Bonnie Dennison (Stake Land, Third Watch), Chris Conroy (Sorority Row) and Mark Margolis (Breaking Bad) star in this highly suspenseful and bloody thriller.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bottom Feeding July 25, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Here we have your standard creature feature with nearly every cliched element represented. You've got a group of cocky youngsters in a lake where there's no cell phone reception. You've got a curious mismatch of personalities, from the creepy loner to the blonde tease to the nerdy filmmaker wannabe and (of course) the alpha male joke. I mean, jock. You've even got a wizened old man who warns them about impending danger (they ignore the old fart, natch). Watch as they take a row boat into the middle of a lake and begin getting picked off, one by one, by some kind of giant, carnivorous fish.

Let's start with the only thing that works. I almost gave this movie one star but I decided not to solely because of the performances. These kids aren't portraying any group of seniors you'd ever want to know in real life, but at least they threw themselves into their roles wholeheartedly. The majority of them did pretty decent jobs, so kudos to the cast. It's too bad that the writing and directing were so completely inept that it turned the acting into frosting on a turd cake.

This is not to say the characters were any good. You've got Johnny, the morose moron who actually knew about the fish and didn't try to stop his so-called friends as they gadded about in the water. He spends 90% of his screen time sulking, scowling, and pouting for no real reason. It looked for all the world like they cast him just to give the film a poor man's replica of another Johnny -- Depp. Watch him emote! And demonstrate a total lack of responsibility or skill! There's the nebbish Zeke, who spends the bulk of the film either pitying or glorifying himself. There's three other people, including that blonde who is just plain enough to flirt shamelessly with everyone. The end result: they're all horrible jerks.

Ever since "Jaws" hit theaters in 1975, filmmakers have attempted to cash in on the killer sea monster craze. We've seen three sequels to the original Steven Spielberg classic alone. When sharks lost their charm, other sea beasts were drafted to take their place in the world of horror cinema. "Orca, the Killer Whale" and "Piranha" come to mind right away. Now we can add the over-sized razor-toothed catfish of "Beneath" to the list.

A group of high school students head out to Black Lake in celebration of their graduation. Ignoring the folk tales of the area, the bunch load up a small fishing boat and paddle their way to the other side. As their partying and swimming gets increasingly noisier, something deep in the depths of the lake is awakened and begins looking for its next meal.

It's very apparent Director Larry Fessenden was influenced by "Jaws" and "Piranha" when bringing "Beneath" to the screen. The aerial camera shots showing the creature swim below the boat are ripped right out of a page of the cinematographer's diary for "Jaws." As a matter of fact, most of the camera angles and shots in this are taken straight out of Spielberg's original.

The great thing about "Beneath" is that it isn't content with being an homage to "Jaws" and "Piranha." Writers Tony Daniel and Brian D. Smith make the movie a study on human relationships and the lengths we would go to for self-preservation. It makes for a pleasantly uncomfortable and shockingly horrific viewing experience.

The audio and video quality of "Beneath" is top-notch. It's presented in 1080p High-Definition Widescreen (1.78:1) and DTS-HD Master Audio. The picture is clean with good color levels.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting movie, but very predictable. January 8, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Fighting for survival against an ugly fish, everyone turning on eachother, very predictable.
I gave this film 4 stars because it kept me interested, although it was slow at times.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beneath is beneath viewers July 19, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
SOOO not worth the money. Amateur videos like this should be free on Amazon, or very cheap and come labeled as student films. I am fine with people practicing their filmmaking, and bringing their efforts to Amazon - just please give us a warning about what kind of film it is, and don't ask your friends to write fake 5 star reviews, please!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy - save your money August 17, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Well, this could have been good. But it wasn't. Just a big, cheesy looking fish and a boat full of stupid, selfish kids. Started rooting for the fish!

1.0 out of 5 stars At least the fish was likable... August 6, 2014

Once again, I am wondering how these movies get made. Movie started fine, despite multiple clichés; I was actually creeped out when the fish first appeared, a menacing shape swimming under the boat toward the three swimmers in the water...but, everything plummeted downhill from there. Other reviewers point out the multiple, and I do mean multiple, absolutely implausible and moronic events which occur. At one point during the last half of the movie, one particularly obnoxious character stands up and shouts "this is unbelievable!" This briefly piqued my interest- I thought just maybe this mess had been a subtle parody, and we would finally be let in on the joke. Perhaps there would suddenly be some Cabin In The Woods cleverness, or the film would increasingly mock itself, letting us know the makers were self-aware the entire time about how ridiculous this all was...but no. No reveal that the characters and fish were symbolic of mankind's tendency towards conflict, man versus nature allegory, etc. Just lazy, awful screenwriting and directing. I was especially disappointed when looking up the director on IMDB and discovering he had directed "The Last Winter," which is IMO an incredible movie with an important message. What happened here? Was Mr. Fessenden so angry at a lack of commercial success that he decided to put all of his hate and rage into this ("I'll show them- they want stupid, I'll give them stupid!")? Was this initially another project with value that was destroyed by meddling producers ("dumb it down, Larry, dumb it down. It doesn't have to make sense- they just want to see people yell at each other and get eaten."

But I am developing another theory, after watching a string of movies like Beneath and ATM.
