Editorial Reviews

In the tradition of Open Water and Rogue comes a thrilling and suspenseful new horror film inspired by the true events of a terrifying crocodile attack. What begins as a leisurely boat tour down the rivers of Northern Australia becomes a horrifying race for survival when Grace, Adam and Lee become hostages of a man-eating crocodile. When their boat suddenly capsizes in a mangrove swamp they are shocked to find that their guide is missing. Realizing they've been attacked by a crocodile, the only place they can find safety is up a tree. Now, stranded in the flooded swamp, starving and terrified, the three must battle to survive the bloodthirsty beast who sits below -- just waiting for one of them to lose their grip...

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 12, 2008
Format: DVD
Black Water is one extremely intense human survival movie. I don't know how anyone could sit through this and not have to consciously unclench most of his/her muscles before he/she can walk away after it's over. I can see where comparisons with Jaws (30th Anniversary Edition), Open Water (Widescreen Edition), or Rogue would ultimately come up in the discussion of this film, but I absolutely did not expect to see some viewers rating it so poorly. I don't think the Jaws comparisons carry much weight, and -as far as the other film comparisons go - who cares? Even if you've never seen a movie before in your life, you pretty much know how the film is going to play out by the twenty-five minute mark - and that doesn't make the film any less thrilling or suspenseful. The only question that really matters here is who, if any, of the characters are going to survive. The plot is one of brutal simplicity - and I mean that as a compliment.

Here's the situation. You're enjoying a fishing adventure with two family members in a mangrove swamp in Northern Australia when your boat is capsized by a salt-water crocodile. Two of you manage to scurry up a nearby tree, while the most vulnerable member of your party clings to the top of the overturned boat. Forget about your tour guide because he doesn't survive the initial attack. The odds are that no one is going to be looking for you any time soon, and there are hundreds of little tributaries to search if someone does come.

The first time I saw this movie on Demand, I was expecting it to be your average man-eating animal movie. Instead, I got one of the best and perhaps the most realistic movie of this type. The movie is about a group of friends who take a fishing trip out into the mangrove swamp of Northern Australia. Soon, however, they get more than they barganined for when an enormous croc flips their boat, kills their tour guide, and traps them up in a tree. What really seperates this movie from so many others is the story is convincing. As someone who has read extensively about crocidiles, I can tell you that everything the croc does in this movie can be done by crocs in the wild. Now perhaps not all at once as the movie depicts, but just about every specific action can be done. Another thing is the acting. The acting in this movie is by far the best acting I have seen in any movie (much less a horror one) in a long, long time. You can literally feel the terror of the characters. In addition, the croc is the most realistic looking movie monster in a long time, as it should since they used real crocs for many of the scenes. I can't praise this movie enough. Buy it, watch it. You won't be dissapointed.

Simple premise - small group on holiday in Australia, want to go fishing and exploring. They end up going on a tiny charter boat, with a guy who happens to be filling in for the regular skipper. Well, anyone who knows anything about Australia - knows that the Saltwater crocodile is present in many areas of the country, and one manages to totally disrupt their trip on a infrequently used river, in a most disconcerting way ! A slow build-up to a terrifying, drawn out encounter with one of the world's greatest man eaters. Love this film !

Three people with "lunch" written on their forehead get trapped in Australia's backwater by a big crocodile. That is pretty much it for plot. The movie has believable characters and good intensity. It reminded me too much of "Frozen" which was about three kids trapped in a ski lift. If you liked "Frozen" you should love this one, which I found significantly better.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. 3 1/2 stars

This story about being trapped by a crocodile sent chills down my back. I loved the film. It didn't move slowly like some films do. Everything about it was spell binding. I strongly recommend this film to those who love to be scared. This film has very sad moments for me; but, I thoroughly enjoyed the film.

This is a movie that leaves no questions as who might win, the victims or the croc, It's mind shattering with sitting on the edge action. The imagination is fantastic sitting on a branch getting eaten alive by mozies and a croc waiting for you to join him below for lunch. No lights to show you were he is at night, hearing him eating hes last victim. it's a marvellous movie and the croc played his part very well, The actors did a sensational job protraying their roles, Being the victims and making you feel you are there with them. A terrific movie different to all others and something worth having in your collection. A top grade movie and watch it for yourself, if in doubt.
