For this 'Ten Years On' post we take a look back at "Black Water".
I've always had a soft spot for killer animal films, so when this film came out you know I just had to watch it.
I have to admit that this is not a film for everyone, yes it's a film about a killer croc but it's not the gorefest you may imagine it to be. This disappoints a lot of viewers, but not me, I loved it.
The feature is so simplistic in it's structure that it truly is a stripped down, bare bones kind of film, this added with the fact that it's a slow burning story turned quite a few viewers off of it which is a shame.
Directors David Nerlich and Andrew Traucki actually used a real crocodile and used minimal CGI, I've always loved this fact as I hate bad CGI ruining what could be a great film. This realism really adds to the films high suspense and intensity.
This is a film I tend to watch about once a year, I find it so refreshing to watch and it's also evidence that you can have a feature that can slow the pace down and still have an entertaining film that inspires fear.
