5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better B-movies I've seen. July 25, 2009
Format:DVD
The five-star rating is for straight-to-your-video-store movies only and doesn't include the big budgets films.
Other reviewers have gone over the plot with a fine-toothed comb, so I won't spent the time telling you what you no-doubt have already read. I'll just say that as far as these types of movies go, this is one of the best. The people who made this movie actually cared about it and did their best with the limited budget they had.
The story is nothing special but neither is it as silly as most. There are a few scenes that were lifted almost whole from more famous movies (Jaws, Predator, Gremlins...)and instantly stand out, but probably not in the way the film makers had hoped. Also, I thought the ending was a little weak and contrived, but, again, not terrible for a movie of this type.
The acting for the most part is decent. One of the main characters has a little trouble expressing his dismay at finding a friend torn to pieces(maybe they should have given the poor guy a couple of more takes), but he is pretty much solid the rest of the movie. The girl who plays his daughter on the other hand is the worst of the bunch. However, every time she delivered a bit of stiff dialogue she seemed to follow it up with some vicious act against the creatures attacking her and her boyfriend (as if she were mad at herself for being such a bad actress). It made her character fun to watch compared to the way most women in these movies are potrayed.
The special effects were the best part for me. While certainly not as good as the big boys, you can tell alot of time and money was put into creating the creatures. They have a lot of detail, a unique design, and are matted fairly well against the actual footage, enough anyway so that it doesn't instantly take you out of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A LOT better than most SyFy /Sci Fi Movies August 10, 2009
Format:DVD
Arguably the best in the Maneater Series (Maneater Series Collection - Vol. 1 (Blood Monkey, Maneater, In the Spider's Web),Maneater Series Collection Vol. 2: Croc;Eye of the Beast;Grizzly Rage etc.) as well.

In the days before Sci Fi started to mass produce/ buy any and all bad CGI creature of the week movies, this script could have been a contender. I was reminded of the original Tremors while watching it.

It's A welcome throwback to the B-movies of the fifties. A creature concept as close to something new as the genre allows. Budget awareness seems to have prevailed, the monster is given chameleon like abilities, sometimes its "invisible", but when it is visible it's detail is above par. The Sea Beast actually sees more screen time than The Relic (The Relic/Pet Semetary 2 )and that was made for theatrical release.

If your a fan of the genre this one is highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars great creatures.......... September 9, 2009
Format:DVD
Its hard to have a great movie...either the acting sucks and the effects are
great...or the acting is great and the effects are bad.
In this one...i would have to pick the great creature effects with so so acting. Ok the acting is not that bad...but when you have great visual for
creatures...the acting must be brough up a par, but in this case it could
only go as high as the quality of the actors could. Most of them did a good
job, but the script did not give them too much justice, and once in a while
the movie felted like other movies...run run run...wait wait wait ...panic panic panic....

But anyway, im pleased that this movie exist, caused with such great creature
effects possible, i can imagine future monster movies.... I hope they
improve the casting.
Good for a keeper

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mild Surprise August 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Picture the scene: It was a Saturday in August, mid-afternoon, with temperatures hovering around the century mark for the fourth week running, making it miserable to even try to do anything outside. On a rare occasion, I found myself alone in the house. With nothing pressing to do, I switched on the TV and reclined on the couch with the intention of taking a most satisfying nap. Lying there, I flipped through numerous channels, trying to find some type of programming that was conducive for good napping; a golf tournament or an old, black and white film from the forties is always good. During my search, I happened to come across this movie, which was just starting on the Sci-Fi Channel. Before I knew it, I was still lying there, still with the intention of taking a nap, but pleasantly surprised by this celluloid endeavor. And before I knew it again, I ended up watching the entire movie.

I provided that little backstory in order to try and paint the best way to approach and view this movie: With no pre-conceived notions whatsoever; just take it as it comes.

The movie is derivative. That much is certain. And some of the dialogue, acting, and special effects are cheesy (cheap). But, at the same time, if you're a fan of such fodder and in the right state of mind (as mentioned in my first paragraph), it can be very entertaining on an amusing level. In that sense, I highly recommend it. To view it under different circumstances would be a waste of time.
Pick the right time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Attack of the Sea Babies August 28, 2010
Format:DVD
I like Sea Beast.

There, I said it. Part of my affection for a movie vaguely described after an aquatic monster is the monster itself, beautifully rendered in CGI as a sort of Deep One (from H.P. Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth), part frog, part fish, all killer. It has the face of an angler fish, a creature repeatedly referenced throughout the film - the Sea Beast is one ugly mother. And it's a mother too, with several smaller spawn that inconvenience our heroes.

IMDB indicates that the movie was originally titled "Troglodyte" which makes no sense whatsoever. My suspicion is that it was originally titled "Sea Devil" because the phrase is used no less than three times to describe the creature.

Monster movies tend to be divided into two converging plots. One group is the clueless unarmed teenagers out for a wild party and the other are well-armed veterans who know what they're up against. Will McKenna (Corin Nemec, trying mightily to channel Quint from Jaws and failing), is the embittered sailor who lost a friend to the beast. Miriam McDonald is Will's idiot daughter Carly. While Will plays a game of hide-and-seek with the mother creature on land, Carly and her boyfriend are trapped in an island house by her spawn.

The battle between the sheriff (another McKenna, Will's brother Jay), several gun-toting morons, and Will is taken straight from Predator. The beast jumps like Predator (a trait forgotten by just about every other rip off, including the Aliens vs. Predator films), camouflages itself like Predator, we see through the MonsterCam like Predator, and it decapitates people like Predator. It's basically Predator, only a little soggier.

Much more innovative is the teenagers vs. Sea Babies.

I was really not expecting much out of this movie. But to be honest it is not anywhere as bad as others in the maneater series. I did not mind it too bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go in with your expectations low, come out pleasantly surprised.
This nifty little mash-up of "Predator" and "The Creature From the Black Lagoon" and many other B-trope movies is imminently enjoyable if you can check your brain in at the door. Read more

This movie was very disappointing. I bought it based on watching the action pre-views. The action pre-view is the only good part in this movie.
