Neasa Hardiman's suspenseful creature feature has acquired a new relevance since its world premiere at Toronto. Dougray Scott and Connie Nielsen anchor the tale as a couple facing financial ruin unless their trawler snares a bumper catch on its next foray into the Atlantic. Joining them is Siobhán (Hermione Corfield, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), a brilliant and socially awkward marine biology student. Hardiman's screenplay neatly combines tense human drama and monster movie terror when a massive underwater entity latches onto the vessel and begins to infect crew members with voracious parasitic spores. Siobhán's attempt to destroy the organism and prevent an apocalyptic pandemic lends an eerie, prescient quality to the film's exciting action.
