04.05.08Netflix Another one of those movies often brought up that I haven't seen. This was pretty good. It reminded me a bit of Pirahna not only in the Jawspoiltation aspect but also in that it's better than it has to be and probably better than it should be. Robert Forster's great and so are the jokes about his thinning hair, the gator... eh, looks ok but it's handled pretty well, but most notably - as writer John Sayles mentioned in the little 15-minute doc on the disc - is the tone. Teague got that perfect mix of humor and horror, injecting light notes to mix it up but not so much that it loses its tension, that makes a movie utterly watchable. I liked the THEM throwbacks as well.
