Editorial Reviews

There is always something bloodthirsty lurking in the Louisiana Bayou. But there has never, ever, been anything like this. A pack of massive, genetically engineered flesh eating fish is combing the quiet waters of the river, searching for prey. Leaving a trail of mangled bodies along the riverbank,the creatures have local authorities scrambling to uncover what is causing the carnage and it quickly becomes clear that they are dealing with no ordinary predatorand these man-eaters far outweighany killer they have ever come up against. Scientifically bred with a deadly snake and geneticallyconditioned to breathe both under water and on land, Frankenfish can hunt wherever humans tread. And they're fast. And they're hungry.

Format: DVD
No, despite the title, "Frankenfish" isn't a painful-to-watch monster spoof trying achingly hard to be both cool and funny but failing miserably at both. And despite what the title might also have you thinking, it's not a $10-budgeted filmed-in-the-basement-over-the-weekend student film. It's a surpsisingly well done, at times quite fierce, and thoroughly fun, blast of monster mayhem.

Set in the deep parts of the Florida everglades, the movie involves (as opposed to a re-animated fish swimming forth from a foreboding gothic castle) Chinese Snakeheads (real fish from China, piranha-like creatures who can live for a while on land and will even attack prey on land) who've been genetically engineered by a group of wealthy big-game hunters to grow to monsterous proportions, all the better for them to track down with their machine guns and grenade launchers during the pursuit of their 'sport'. A ship carrying the cargo gets caught in a massive storm and washed up the river into the Everglades where the beasties get free just in time for lunch. And, of course, the 'Frankenfish' have turned out even more lethal than their designers intended. This movie is far from a spoof but it is a little on the campy side, a little on the tongue-in-cheek side, and it's a reminder that, occasionally, a bit of the campy elements in a horror movie don't necessarily have to be a bad thing, as long as they don't go overboard.

The main protagonists in the film aren't the rich hunters. A Florida cop and an Everglades wildlife expert are dispatched into the rivers to do some investigation into the discovery of a washed-up and eaten-up corpse, and end up at a cluster of houseboats where people live year-round in the Everglades making a living off fishing in the rich swamps and streams.

Format: DVD
I don't know what form of madness I suffer from that requires me to rent virtually every film from the "animals run amok" genre. Whatever it is, and such an illness ought to have a name, I'm currently passing through the advanced stages. I don't even bother reading a plot summary anymore when I see a DVD case with killer sharks, giant insects, or mutated monsters on the cover; I just rent the sucker immediately. It's likely--extremely, painfully likely--that the movie in question will stink. It goes without saying that the filmmakers lifted most of the plot from Spielberg's "Jaws." Doesn't matter. I'll still rent the movie in question and give it a watch. Such was the case with director Mark A.Z. Dippé's "Frankenfish." Just look at that cover! How could I resist such an alluring vision as that? If, for some reason, the cover is no longer visible, the case for "Frankenfish" shows two hapless looking people in water up to their waist in the foreground while a gigantic, ugly fish sporting lots of nasty looking teeth zooms toward them in the background. Yay! We're about to have some fun! Well, not really, but the movie isn't as bad as some in this genre.

"Frankenfish," set in the mythical land called Louisiana, begins by introducing us to a crack medical examiner named Sam Rivers (Tory Kittles) as he goes about investigating a crime scene. He quickly finds more than he bargained for when a call sends him further into the bayou to investigate a suspicious animal attack in the swamp. Teaming up with a busty scientist named Mary (China Chow), Rivers discovers with some alarm that the victim in question sports bite marks of an unknown origin. Uh oh. Obviously, an investigation needs to take place right away in order to ascertain the cause of death.

Format: DVD
This was reminiscent of the Anaconda movies, but in a way I had a better laugh and enjoyed this one more than the movie it was trying to copy. Yes this is a cheesy movie, but there's nothing wrong with a little horror flick on a rainy Saturday night as you watch it with someone who's also in a mood for a laugh.

Basically this is a fish turned ingenious monster gone bad. They look like giant carps and they fly, walk and break pretty much all the characters into gazillion pieces. The fish were mostly CG graphics but they were so big, gross and monstrous looking that I didn't mind at all. I enjoyed this as a rental but I don't see myself making this a purchase, in that manner this movie was a fun hour and a half with some blood, gore and humor thrown in.

The characters were pretty solid in their roles as they really tried to outsmart the colossus. A young Denzel Washington look alike playing the wise medical examiner along with China Chow who played a biologist get stranded at Louisiana swamps at a tiny house on the water type of a community consisting of about 6 people. They get surrounded and hunted down by the fish, and their battle was pretty entertaining to watch. They were almost as mice in a cage waiting to be eaten and we couldn't wait to see who was going to make it and who was gonna be chunky delight for Frankenfish.

Cheesy, breezy, monster animal flick. Not bad, enjoy.

This movie isn't as bad as you'd think it would be, going by the title. Maybe that was the intention. Hit the audience with a really bad title and then when the movie isn't as schlocky as the title suggests, people will be duped into thinking the movie isn't all that bad. But, just because it's not as bad as the title, doesn't mean it's good.

This movie belongs in a Bad Bayou Movie Double Feature with Tobe Hooper's "Crocodile". The DVD cover boasted "From the director of Spawn!" Now, is that supposed to be a good thing? There's a reason Mark Dippe was in director jail, and he has committed another film crime with this turkey. With any luck, this is a violation of parole, and will put him back inside.
