Captivating environmental horror.

Investigating the pollution levels on the remote island of Balf, Dr. Shaw (Bannen) uncovers a dark secret...

Due to unauthorized waste dumps in the local fishing waters, the island's inhabitants are being transformed into hideously deformed monsters doomed to violence and an early death.

Good performances from Bannen and Geeson especially, with a climax both powerful and bittersweet.
