Movie Info

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

  • 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 ...

  • As shrill as it often is, the film's situational peril makes otherwise unlikable characters sympathetic, or maybe just sympathetic enough.

  • 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.

  • The whole film is a campy put-on, right? Apparently not.

  • The characters are so one-note and annoying that it doesn't manage to be anything close to compelling as a character drama, and they're not bold enough archetypes that it plays as satire.
