Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Writer/producer David E Kelley, of Ally McBeal fame, here turns his hand to a daft creature feature that will tickle fans of Tremors. There's something under the surface of Black Lake that's making monster munch out of visitors, so warden Bill Pullman, palaeontologist Bridget Fonda (Kelley's first choice for the role of Ally McBeal), grumpy sheriff Brendan Gleeson and nutty millionaire Oliver Platt decide to hunt down the critter before any other bits of semi-digested locals pop to the surface. If you fancy something that isn't remotely brain-straining, this perfect popcorn entertainment could be for you.
