Goofs

When the woman is being assaulted under the pier a creature kills the gangsters attacking her. The first criminal to get killed gets his neck broken before being tossed aside. While he's getting his neck broken you can see his mustache and stubbly beard. When he gets tossed onto the beach his stunt double has a different hair style and no facial hair at all. They reuse the same shot of this stunt fall about 20 seconds later to represent a different punk getting beaten up. See more »

Quotes

Stephen Jarvis: You know, you're very beautiful. Maybe it's the environment, but you turn me on. And I could turn you on, too. You've seen my kid, haven't you? That's just a glimpse of the animal in me.

Leave my baby alone
24 August 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

The most interesting thing about this film was seeing Golden Globe and three-time Emmy winner Michael Moriarty rant and rave about the fact that they wouldn't leave his child alone. I just can't look at Moriarity without seeing Ben Stone from "Law and Order." Seeing him on the other side arguing before Macdonald Carey (also a two-time Daytime Emmy winner for "Days of Our Lives") to save that butt-ugly child of his was hilarious.

But, it gets even funnier as he tries to save his child and, ultimately, his grandchild. He should be Parent of the Year for loving those creatures. Karen Black is his ex, the mother of the monster, and, well, you just have to see how that ends.

Making a comedy out of these things is genius.
