As a hurricane rages outside, the small but experienced crew of an oil drilling rig settles in to ride out the storm. Isolated on the rig, their calm is short lived when a crew member goes missing and an extensive search proves futile. Slowly, they discover that a deadly creature is stalking the skeleton crew, eliminating them one by one. Surrounded by nothing but raging ocean, their communication severed and no way off the rig, the roughnecks try to survive the stormy night with an unrelenting force of death hunting them down.

In the storyline description it says that the crew has no way off the rig. But drill rigs are usually equipped with at least two lifeboats that can each hold the entire crew. And in the opening shot of the movie an orange lifeboat is clearly visible on the side of the rig. See more »


Andrew: I've never seen anything like it before, man! It had claws... it kind of looked like the Mexican Chubra thing. You know, the Mexican thing.
Rodriguez: I'm Puerto Rican, asshole!
Andrew: Okay! Whatever it was, it was fierce. It tore Wallace apart!

This movie should give hope to all aspiring film makers.
6 October 2010 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

If you're wondering why, with a summary like that, I can only give it 1 out of 10, let me explain.

If someone can take a script this bad and a cast so poor and still persuade people to hand their money over to it, then, if you're an aspiring movie maker, you should be ecstatic.

It has absolutely everything bad you can think of in a movie: Horrendously poor editing; a completely pointless flashback to a few minutes earlier, in black and white to remind you (if you're a complete idiot) what just happened; dreadful, tinny low budget music to match the low budget set; and a man in a plastic monkey suit grabbing people in a quick blur of camera motion while someone throws fake blood around.

And dialogue that's so poor that if they had managed to hire a cast of decent actors they would have ended up shaking their heads at the inanity of it all.

There are some tits in it. That ought to double the viewing audience.

Give this one a wide berth unless you have the choice of watching this or sticking map pins into your eyeballs.
