Sea Beast

In Sea Creature (2009), Oregon seaside fishing/cigar chomping captain Will McKenna has problems bigger than losing one of his crew in the middle of a storm and keeping said cigar lit in the rain and waves coming over the deck. There’s an invisible sea creature that put him and everyone in Oregon on the menu.Sea beast

And it’s that very same sea monster that’s been eating up all that pricey salmon and following Will back to port, where it lays eggs that will hatch more sea monsters. And they come to the feast with nasty table manners — they spit a green goo that paralyzes humans, wherein the monsters feast on your face while you’re still alive. You can’t scream or even crap your pants, which has got to suck hard.

The monsters start the buffet with teenage appetizers, leaving a trail of entrails. Complicating matters is the creatures are invisible until they strike and can jump around tree branches like they had just watched The Predator on DVD.

From this point on, it’s run, hide, scream, bleed, die. A full-on monster attack on two teens — one of which is Will’s daughter — takes place in a remote cabin. Unfortunately, their assault yielded little edible results. So they move the battle to an abandoned and likely stinky ferry. Problem for the survivors is the boat also doubles as a nesting place filled with eggs filled with more monsters. And some goop.

The showdown on the boat is a bit on the weak side, especially given the previous graphic gore goop painting the scenic seaside. But hey, nice body count from the monsters, even if they look like digital dino doggies.
