Audience Reviews for Razortooth
There's a reason so many nature-run-amock movies are getting made, and primarily it's because you don't need to put a lot of thought into them. Nowhere is that lack of imagination more apparent than in "Razortooth", the latest killer animal opus to surface on DVD. This one is about a gigantic, meat-eating eel let loose in the swamps of Florida, even though this was filmed in Louisiana, and it's about as bad as they get. Everything about it is lousy, from the acting to the writing, but in films like this I prefer to focus on the special effects. Everything from the larger than life critter to most of the murders are CGI, and it's all just awful and one more example of why these pictures are so easy to make. The eel is simply laughable in every shot that it's in, and several times it almost looks like a sock puppet. In fact, that might have seemed more realistic. You just have to wonder what's worse: the lazy filmmakers who are just fine with putting out junk like tis or the indiscriminate public who is OK with it being this terrible. Still, there are many other problems here. There are the point of view shots from this enormous creature and yet the people its watching can't see it, or the "dead" guy who can barely keep his eyes shit as our hero riffles through his pockets. And you can't help but laugh at the warning of the dangers of global warming over the credits, even though the film's creature was the result of genetic tinkering. There's a lot wrong with "Razortooth". In fact, I can't think of one thing that's right about it.
This is based on real land walking eels, but the movie exaggerated of course. The CGI made the eel look ridiculous but the movie was fun anyways. The outhouse scene was gross.
Razortooth has all the cliches you could ask for in a bad horror film. Fat/illiterate hillbillies (You can find these in just about every horror film,) a group of clueless friends you won't give two shits about... and, of course, awful CGI. Enjoy.
