This movie certainly delivered

Now, call me strange, but I like to watch the occasional gash movie and I have to say, this movie tops it.

Yes, the script was so cheesy mice were asking where party was, the cgi looked like they were done on a ZX Spectrum, the acting was appalling but it was great. For gash, it was the gashest. Had to watch it over three nights just to fully appreciate how delightfully bad this movie was.

You have to wonder who read the script and said "This is good.", as every rotten line in creation was stuffed into it. And the actors were obviously giving it their all, which just made it funny.

Worth a watch if you want a laugh, but definitely not worth taking seriously, and definitely not worth getting annoyed about. Good grief, even the synopsis of the movie was telling you it was gash.

Has nothing to recommend it

I saw The Thing Below as, regardless of a movie's reputation, genre, age or how it looks, I've always believed in giving movies a fair chance. I had nothing else to do so I went ahead and watched it anyway. Having sat through the whole thing, I honestly wish I hadn't and am surprised that I even made it to the end. Even when giving it a fair chance, The Thing Below is still one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time, can't even remember the last time when I saw a movie with no redeeming values whatsoever, and possibly even ever. An obvious starting point in summing up what was wrong with The Thing Below(which is enough to fill an essay on how not to make a movie) would be the technical values. The interiors and lighting look very drab and the editing choppy. There are scenes as well that look as though they were edited from other movies and very clumsily too. The special effects actually look as though they were thrown into the movie at last minute through desperation with a very unfinished look to them. Other commentators have said that some of the worst special effects they've ever seen are in The Thing Below, and I really cannot argue against that. The sound effects manage to be both muddied and bizarre, while the music was so dull and generic that I can't even remember it.

There is absolutely nothing believable in the dialogue either, there is so much cheesiness and awkwardness that it is enough to make your toes curl. In regards to the story it is highly derivative, but considering that this is hardly the first movie to have this problem I can kind of temporarily forgive it. But the cobbled-together structure, cringe-worthy parody-like approach to scenes, sluggish pacing and a complete lack of atmosphere, suspense and thrills I cannot forgive. Every character is underwritten and obnoxious, even the beginning had scientists behaving in a mind-numbingly stupid way. The titular monster was not menacing or memorable in the slightest, the movie doing absolutely nothing to develop it, its terrible design being the least of its problems. While a lot of the actors don't seem to have a clue what type of movie they are in, throughout there is a very strange mix of over-earnestness and disengaged blandness and it was really painful to sit through. To conclude, an extremely poor movie with nothing to recommend at all. 0/10 Bethany Cox

Was This Written As It Went Along ?

I feel the need to justify myself by saying that there was absolutely nothing on and found myself watching the SyFy channel . I wasn't expecting because we are talking about the SyFy Channel and was intrigued by SEA GHOST ( That's the title it was broadcast under ) and if I didn't like it I could always share my opinion on it with my faceless peers on IMDb . Unfortunately if I'd visited this page before seeing this dreadful piece of excrement I might have saved myself two hours of my life that I will never get back

The bizarre thing is that SEA GHOST gets off to ... well I won't use the word " good " but it does seduce the audience in to thinking it might be better than it really is as the early scenes features a group of scientists examining some alien DNA they've found under the ocean surface . Suddenly the DNA comes to life and attacks the scientists . I say DNA but perhaps CGI would be a better expression since it's obvious how the effect is achieved . SEA GHOST contains perhaps the worse CGI I've ever seen in a film and I've seen a lot of movies on the SyFy Channel and this goes way beyond bad as an alien tentacle resembles something out of a kids cartoon . Things get even worse as it's revealed that the cartoonish CGI is only the second worst thing about the movie

What really makes SEA GHOST stick out from its mediocre fellows is the lack of a focused storytelling genre. I thought I'd be watching the tried and trusted formula of a CGI monster chasing scientists around a ship but this isn't how it plays out . The scientists are killed off and new characters are brought in to carry the story . As the story continues there's scenes that belong in a totally different film . We get some soft porn , a Western sequence complete with the man with no name and an action scene set in Iraq . This is explained by a character stating something along the lines of " The alien must be able to read our thoughts and give us intense hallucinations "

SEA GHOST is a film that gives the audience the impression that it's being written as it's going along . One is left perplex at the number of scenes that feel as if they've wandered in from a different genre never mind a different film . One wonders if the often laughable and inept CGI is either a symptom or the cause for the way the narrative constantly changes structure
