Five high school graduates venture to a secluded lake for a weekend celebration, but get stranded in the water when a flesh-eating creature emerges from the depts. Now, trapped in the treacherous waters without an oar, the teens must figure out a way to reach the shore without getting devoured. Meanwhile, distrust and infighting threatens to be their undoing before they even dare to face the terror below. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Beneath
Whatever tension the pic manages to build ... is mostly undercut by the recurring appearance of the fish and by the generally overemphatic performances of the human cast ...
A proudly lowbrow, low-budget monster movie that sees nothing wrong with the cheap-and-dirty shortcuts of yesteryear.
The title doesn't just refer to what lurks in the lake's still water. It's a guide to where Beneath's substance lies, the acid heart inside its plastic chest.
A few things could have been improved upon, but it's at least ambitious and has an interesting twist.
Beneath is both a tribute to monster-in-the-woods and the creature-under-the-water horror and a genuine indie drama in the guise of a horror film.
The film is simply too sloppy and full of holes, many of which should have been easily noticed from the writing of the script through pre-production.
[Blu-ray Review] Well shot and technically competent. It's also a bit of an insult to the viewer's intelligence.
As shrill as it often is, the film's situational peril makes otherwise unlikable characters sympathetic, or maybe just sympathetic enough.
Beautifully shot, but marked by a screenplay that mistakes and substitutes volume for well staked-out, compelling interpersonal disagreement.
