This is a reasonably enjoyable and mild horror flick.
Will is a forty-something fisherman, struggling to meet the repayments on his fishing vessel. One night his boat is caught in a vicious storm and one of the crew, Joey, disappears overboard.
Will has a twenty-something daughter, who is blessed with the looks of a catwalk model. She's dating the similarly aged Danny, who works as one of Will's crew. Will doesn't want his daughter settling down with one of the seafaring locals, because he thinks it will stop her from going to University. The young couple, along with another scalding hot girl named Erin, decide to go out on a boating trip.
What Will and his crew don't know, is that when they returned home from their encounter with the storm, a sea-dwelling alien/monster hitched a lift beneath their boat. The creature is clearly an idea taken from the Predator movies, it can change colour like a chameleon and fade into the background. It's proportioned a bit like a velociraptor but with larger upper limbs. Like a snake, it spits a venom which paralyses its victims.
What follows then is the villagers defending themselves from the predations of the invisible monster and its offspring...
This is a reasonably diverting horror flick. It's not scary or tense, and overall it has the vibe of creature features like King Kong and Godzilla. I watched it with my twelve year old daughter and she wasn't perturbed by any scenes. The acting is okay, the film score is a little hammy, and the CGI is passably good. The film basically plays out like Predator set in a fishing village. The female cast have the looks of Miss World contestants, immaculately coiffured and manicured, which I didn't mind, but it hardly helped to add to the film's credibility.
I was half expecting Dr Who to turn up and come to the aid of the townsfolk (you'll understand why when you see the FX). All in all, the story unfolds in a somewhat predictable fashion, there are no surprises, twists or turns, but it's still fairly enjoyable.
A very similar movie to this one, but rather more skilfully executed, is Grabbers (highly recommended). You might also wish to check out the excellent Aussie creature flick, Bait.
Thank you for taking the time to read this review.

The film starts in mid-ocean with a fishing boat and its crew riding the waves in the stormy, dark, rainy night. When a crew member disappeares, thought to have fallen overboard in the weather, the team set sail to port. Unaware to them however, there is something else hitching a ride beneath the boat.
The creature with 2 arms and 2 legs takes to land, preying and feasting on the locals. Having a camouflage to that similiar to the 'predator', it blends itself in with the surrounding background until revealing its true form. There is plenty of footage of the creature and actions scenes, including gory bits with blood and guts etc. Younger versions from the mother also appear and attack, which adds a some variation to the overall picture.

To conclude, the acting and the CGI effects of the creature are pretty good and the picture seems to be well made. Personally, I fairly enjoyed this one as a straight forward action flick and if you like others of the same mold as I do, then you'll probably like this.

APART FROM THE FACT THAT I WONDERED WHO THE HELL IS CORIN NEMEC? NEVER HEARD OF HIM, THE SEA BEAST MOVIE IS ACTUALLY VERY ENTERTAINING AND I FEEL TAKES THE IDEA OF SEA MONSTERS TO A DIFFERENT LEVEL.ALTHOUGH THE PICTURE ON THE DVD IS OTT AND NEVER APPEARS IN THE MOVIE NONETHELESS THE CREATURE IS IMAGINATIVELY DEPICTED THROUGH CGI MOST EFFECTIVELY.THE PLOT LINE IS LIKE THE USUAL PREMISE OF A SEA CREATURE TERRORISING A SMALL SEASIDE COMMUNITY AND NOBODY BUT THE HERO OF THE PIECE IS AWARE OF ITS EXISTENCE UNTIL ITS TOO LATE-BUT AS USUAL THE BEASTIE IS EVENTUALLY DESTROYED.I LIKED THIS MOVIE BECAUSE IT ATTEMPTS TO BE DIFFERENT FROM THE USUAL RUN OF JAWS AND SHARK TYPED FILMS-BUT AS I SAID BEFORE WHO THE HELL IS CORIN NEMEC!!!!!!!!!!

The four stars rating is in comparison to other creature features of its ilk, the sort you get on the Sci-Fi and Zone horror channels. It's not a great movie by any standards but it is a nice little thriller.

A good attractive Canadian coastal location that is well-photographed certainly helps. A competent cast of actors playing it deadly straight and characters that behave like real people is also a plus. The monsters, given the inevitable cgi, are relatively acceptable and there's a fair amount of gore -severed body parts and innards made outtards, plus one nice head biting off scene.

It's all very efficiently and capably done making this a good example of its type -the low budget made-for-cable horror movie. Undemanding fun for the monster movie fan of which I am unrepentantly one.

The gore and the suspense were very enjoyable in this average-budget film. The creatures delivered in terms of their scariness and the plot kept the film ticking over nicely. There was also some good dialogue which contrasted nicely to the action-packed scenes, especially the head-biting scene!

Before watching a B movie I adjust my critic dial, this reduces expectations of well written scripts, good effects or decent acting. There's usually something I like even in the poorest film but this one's just bad.

I can look past cheap effects and bad dialogue but can't abide lazy filmmaking. When actors are seen breathing and blinking, when supposedly dead, you know the director doesn't give a monkeys. And this is the problem. Low-budget doesn't have to mean poorly constructed. This could have been an entertaining creature feature in the hands of a director who actually cared.

A little balance is needed: I watched this because it presently holds an unwarranted 4 1/2 stars on the Amazon rating.

This is a poor mans "Predator" the creatures even blend into the background,it's such a blatant rip off.The story is based in a small town & follows fisherman Will,who loses one of his crew at the start.There is a "Jaws" feel to this as well because as you'd expect no one believes him when he reveals what he saw that night on his boat.
Bring on the scientist & some trapped kids to complete the rip off.The cover is misleading as the monster spends the majority of the film on land.Ropey special effects mixed with some cringe worthy diologue.The acting is dreadful,Nemec is bad enough but the girl who plays Carly,his daughter,takes the biscuit,hopeless doesn't cover it.
A pretty painful 90 minutes,worth avoiding.

Movie is good unknown actor's and actresses story line is great but needed more special effects in the creatures department and could have been 5 out of 5 creatures let the movie down.
