it's "The Thing" on a boat

It's "The Thing" on a boat.

a sentence like that can either be the beginning or the end of someone's interest in the film, entirely dependent not on it being "'The Thing' on a boat" but on what it does with itself.

And in this case, it did nothing. LESS than nothing, if you use "The Thing" as a jumping off point; it has all the standard elements of "The Thing" except for the disguised-as-human-paranoia, so it was essentially just "The Thing" without any of the mystery or psychological horror

More than just chills on this icy trip.

A group of college students wanting to study the effects of global warming find themselves aboard a massive fishing trawler with Captain Graff (Lance Henriksen) and his crew made up of crude malcontents. Something very mysterious is discovered deep below the surface in the icy Bering Sea. When brought up it is judged to be a failed Russian space probe, when thawed out bio-hazard hell is released. Locked in the ice for three decades are rapidly mutating organisms that create a creature that enjoys playing with its nourishment. Terror, suspense, chomp, chomp, goo, guts and gore. Low budget fun.

The cast also features: Camille Balsamo, Giovonnie Samuels, Reid Culloms, Milla Bjorn, Michael Estime, Matt Winston and Jason Speer.

Spoilers follow ...

Put very simply, this is a story heavily influenced by 'The Thing (1982)' featuring Lance Henrikson and series of special effects refreshingly untouched by CGI. To that end, the monstrous and monsters look pleasingly 1980s in style. That's not to say 'old school effects' are unimpressive: although slightly 'cheesy', they are powerful in scale and charmingly gooey. Also, such moments are joyfully free of the 'cartoony' aspect of computer generated effects. Director and writer Alec Gillis seems so proficient that it is something of a surprise he chose to limit his resources to a story with such obvious inspiration.

As you may expect, infighting amongst the group – many of whom have their own agendas – provides some drama when the monsters are otherwise engaged. As always, Henrikson – playing deadpan Graff – is a mighty presence. He seems to have made his professional home in films like this, and thrives in them.
