Well... just rented this movie because a friend of mine and I wanted to have a trash movie night and this movie's cover just made me laugh for the sheer stupidity of the title and the accompanying picture (1 star for that). Too bad the movie didn't keep its promise. It was _stupid_, no question about that. But instead of just taking the unbelievably hilarious plot and making a splatter comedy of it, the makers of that movie actually tried to make a "serious" film (1 star is alone for the courage to try that). Sadly that attempt of course fails miserably. Instead of setting the focus onto that sharkman creature thing, long (and boring) parts of the movie cover the group of heroes running through the forest killing useless henchmen of the mad scientist played by Jeffrey Combs (who wasn't able to rescue that movie, liked him in Reanimator).

Okay, after all, my thoughts: A movie with hilarious title and cover (1 star), even more hilarious plot (1 star) and an attempt to make that crap serious (1 star for courage). Everything else is plain awful.
