Movie Info

In this British sci-fi thriller a group of drug smugglers race their yacht across Hong Kong harbor as they attempt to escape triad gangs after a botched drug deal. They end up docking at a seemingly abandoned off-shore oil rig and it isn't long before they discover that they would have been better off in the triad's hands as the rig is really a research lab where a hungry, constantly morphing genetic experiment has eaten all of the scientists. The newly arrived thieves offer it a veritable smorgasboard, provided they don't get the creature first. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Proteus


A weird concept and way more dramatic than it needs to be. The low budget actually hinders Proteus' vision. There is potential here, but it is never reached.

77% -Slimer- "No! We're not leaving here until its dead."-Alex (Craig Fairbass) The best line in the movie, I shit you not.

A group of heroin smugglers go into an abandoned oil rig, they uncover biological experiments, and then a bunch of crazy shit happens like Charlie a shape-shifting monster with ability to absorb the memory of its victims. Unfortunately, for 90 minutes, the movie plays like an intense Trainspotting meets The Shining (doesn't sound as good as I'm making it out to be). Only in the last few minutes, when we finally see the horrific monster, as well as a seriously creepy Doug Bradley (Pinhead) does the movie pack a punch. Not bad, but not great.
