Well Jools recommended this to me and I'm sure glad he did for what a bizarre treat this was. I don't know how to tell you what happened without ruining it, but there is a shipwreck and a young couple winds up in a really strange village. The village is filled with fish people who have well a really strange agenda. It's actually got some cheesy and some decent effects but the story is thoroughly entertaining and well totally different than most other things I can think of. There is even a weird gore sequence for those who like that sort of thing (like myself). It's one of those entertaining oddities which should appeal to sci-fi and horror nerds all at the same time. The sets and sheer mood of the film are not only intriguing but somewhat creepy and mysterious which is great! Ignore the box art because well, it's lame looking because this story is definitely worth messing with!
