I finally got the chance to see this film, as I have been tracking its progress since its kickstarter began. The entire reason behind the making of the film was to make a good old fashioned monster movie with practical effects worked on by the ADI team responsible for The Thing. I had wanted to donate to the cause, but was too late.
Having Lance Henriksen on board definitely gave the cast a heart to work with. Nobody was expecting this to be a great movie, but that it would at least be entertaining.
The story of the film is very much similar to other films like The Thing, Leviathan, Deep Star Six, Deep Rising, and so on. There are a few interesting twists that I enjoyed, but overall it felt quite rushed in production. The story moves along at a brisk pace as a lot of the actors are not very good, but you can tell they are trying to put on a good show so I respect that. There is no self aware wink at the camera shit like you would see in a Asylum productions film. Everything felt very earnest, but with no real memorable lines or scenes. Lance easily outshines everyone and is the best character in the film. The monster in the film is very hit and miss. While I appreciate it being done in practical effects, it has no real memorable visuals beyond it being a mess of ropy tentacles that seem to move around awkwardly. It has some pretty laughable roar sound effects that sound like it was ripped out of Doom. However there is a great use of miniatures and scenery of the arctic ocean that I love. Considering how tight and small the budget was, I doubt anyone got paid. Despite the mixed reaction to this film, I will definitely be getting it on blu ray. I may not have been able to donate to the movie, but I'll be supporting its shelf release.

I give the film a 3/5. Go see it and give it a chance. It certainly is better than the usual mediocrity in theaters lately and should have had a wide release.
