Despite an amusing title, Frankenfish (2004) is not a comedy, but a poker-faced treatment of the theme of nature gone bad, as mutant fish go on the attack.

The key set of three houseboats way out in the bayou was made quite interesting, with very competent cinematography & some nicely staged gorey events. The acting was as good as can be expected from a monster movie that mainly just picks off the cast one by one.

I expected this to be stinky so I was pleasantly surprised that it is much better than the premise usually gets. I wasn't once tempted to fast-forward.
