Several boats are torn apart, badly wrecked corpses are washed ashore... something horrible is out in the Caribbean sea. The teeth marks on the bodies don't lead to any known animal, so scientist Dr. Stella Dickens suspects it's a so far unknown life form and strives to catch it alive. She doesn't know yet that ruthless scientists have genetically created this creature as a bioweapon, or that it has been designed to reproduce by asexual means. And that the company she works for created the creature and will stop at nothing to keep their secret.Written by

The film's French title is "Apocalypse dans l'ocean rouge", meaning "Revelation in the Red Ocean." See more »
During the intro scene with the boat, the distant shot and underwater view show enough light to see the underside of the boat and land in the distance. Scenes on deck take place in pitch dark. See more »
Dr. Janet Bates:
I can simply say, that the creature you have in your part of the ocean... is a 'living fossil'.

The "Devil Fish" version shows the title twice at the beginning; once just after the attack on the boat and once during the opening credits. See more »
It's a poorly edited film with lots of loose ends and plots that go nowhere. A hit-man character would be better off cut, if not for the scene where he strips an informer naked and throws her into the bathtub with an on hairdryer. There is some more hardcore horror with bit-off limbs and a decapitation where the man's body is inside the fish.
It's the popular view to think of the fish itself as being cheap looking. I disagree. It's pretty lifelike for an 80's rubber monster effect and a lot more enjoyable to me than the video game styled fish in 'The Phantom Menace'.
