Okay, it’s great to see that original stuff can still get some play in this highly derivative structure, especially when it includes clear terror hotties like Pihla Viitala, but even I’m a little suspect about a horror movie that centers on whale watching in Iceland.
It’s actually a fair idea, though–when a group of whale watchers discover that their ship has broken down, they’ve got to get a ride back to land somewhere. A fisher vessel picks them up, and as we discover that the fishermen on board just went bust, everything spirals into madness and the titular massacre gets started in earnest.
Consider also that genre stalwart Gunnar Hansen is in here. That’s right, now we’ve got a party on our hands. Admittedly, a little bit derivative, but still plenty new to hold interest. And with plenty of terror hotties on hand to boot, well, this is a good time in the making if it lives up to its promise.
