I bought this DVD. The cover had a woman wearing a bikini with a slimy tentacle around her neck. Her facial expression alone was worth the nine bucks. Let's just say she would graduate Magna Cum Laude from bad acting school. This bikini babe is nowhere to be found in the actual movie. That's appropriate since I was expecting an out of control B-movie with all of the trimmings. "Plankton" fits like a glove.

So three women and two guys are stuck in a storm and try to find safety on a yacht. They start to wonder about all of the frozen fish on board. What does it all mean? Is the yacht some sort of diabolical research vessel? Or is it really a drug smuggling operation? All of these questions become moot when the fish start going haywire and biting everyone in sight. This leads to many fish-like mutations and gory fish monster scenes.

Now, I'm not going to say that this is a good movie. "Plankton" is a straight forward B-movie with lots of blood and bad acting. I especially enjoyed the sex scene between the girl and the fish-monster. That was some eye popping fun. Overall, if you're the kind of person who enjoys a horny fish monster movie, you'll find something to like here. Otherwise, let this one flop away.

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 horny fish monsters
