One of the most compelling of the animals-gone-wild subgenre of horror, this thriller by Johannes Roberts is the kind of white-knuckle adrenaline pumper that leaves the viewer with chattering teeth. Roberts uses the terrifying darkness of the ocean to maximum efficiency, turning the dark itself into a weapon for suspense just as strong as the hungry white sharks circling our protagonists. The setup itself is inventive and imaginative, and both lead characters are likable and loyal to one another, so the movie makes no assurances as to who may survive the ordeal. Highly recommended for thrill junkies.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
