Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"You really need to go back and see how it was done back in the day ... with reckless abandon and lots of splattery fun in mind"
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
"Corman mini-classic featuring boob-happy sea monsters."

‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"An unintentionally hilarious fusing of mutated salmon and full frontal nudity"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World

‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"I think humanoids from the deep made this picture, too"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
