Fun low budget creature-in-the-water flick with lots of kills, some good gore, and nudity...
18 February 2013 | by bcbell79See all my reviews

...so in my book this is a good time. It's not on the same level as Anaconda and Lake Placid, but it's fun and worth a watch for creature feature fans. As I've already mentioned, Frankenfish has lots of kills and some good gore peppered throughout the quick 84 minute feature, as well as nudity (I never mind seeing pretty naked ladies with my B movies).

The film takes place in the bayou, and some freak fish are on the loose eating the locals. That's pretty much the plot, but the script is fun and the movie speeds along, I never checked my watch, err- cell phone once.

If you are reading this review looking for a fun creature feature with bodies being bitten in half and heads being bitten off by giant carnivorous fish in a swamp...then Frankenfish is for you!!!
