Humanoids from the Deep (1996)

No one is safe when a secret government experiment escapes into the waters of a small fishing community, preying on the men while stealing the women away to their tainted love nest. It will take the combined efforts of the U.S. military and the local fishermen to stop the HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP! The 'Noids return to the small screen in Roger Corman's made-for-TV remake of the 1980 camp classic. HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP is nearly identical to the original film in most regards, but for a few minor alterations to the characters and plot. Despite its televised premiere, HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP packs in just as much gruesome gore and gratuitous nudity as its predecessor, including the notorious carnival scene in the end. Look familiar? It should. Corman reuses a number of scenes from the first film to cut costs, but thankfully, director Jeff Yonis has integrated them seamlessly with bloody new footage tagged on to the end. The creature designs are much better than expected, and only a slight step down from before. HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP '96 is at least as enjoyable as the original film, if not more so for the added gore.

Rating: 6/10.
