review by
Mike Haberfelner

A series of strange deaths is plagueing the US-beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, and since several of this deaths happen simultaneously, it can't be a serialkiller - and thus a top secret gouvernment team of scientists has picked up investigations. But there's not much to go on but the crazed writings of a mysterious homeless man (Jonny Beauchamp) a detective (Tom Sizemore) has gathered from one of the murder scenes, writings which none of the scientists take very seriously - none but Luiza (Nana Gouvea), who soon finds whatever she and the team are looking for might not be chemical or bacteriological but mythological. Of course, nobody believes her, and the head of the team even suggests to her to take leave of her job - but then their prime specimen (Kelly Rae LeGault) escapes and heads for the sea, leaving a trail of death and destruction behind. And even if Luiza is on the verge of losing her own mind, she knows she must follow her to solve the mystery ...

 

A highly interesting piece of sci-fi horror that doesn't play the formula game but time and again builds up inbound genre expectations, only to then blow them sky high - which works totally in favour of the movie thanks to a solid script and a compact directorial effort. And thus the movie's a bit zombie movie, some parts alien invasion flick, conspiracy thriller, found footage film and whatnot, but the blend turns it into something highly original. And add to that plenty of suspense, jump scares and gross-out scenes on one side, a great cast on the other, and you've got yourself a very cool movie indeed!
