Synopsis:
"Sea Fever" is a tense and original Irish sci-fi thriller reminiscent of cult classics 'The Thing' and 'The Abyss', starring Hermione Corfield and Connie Nielsen. For marine biology student Siobhan (Hermione Corfield), it was supposed to be a research excursion with a trawler crew fishing the West Irish seas. Out in the deep Atlantic, an unfathomable life form ensnares the boat and they become marooned with a mysterious parasite infecting their water supply. Soon the oozing force infiltrates the entire vessel and turns Siobhan's journey into a claustrophobic fight for survival. Can they stop the mysterious water borne parasite from spreading before it's too late?

Disappointing - Sea Fever review by PK

Spoiler Alert
01/07/2020

I’m not the best to judge these kind of movies so don’t necessarily take too much notice of my negativity but in my view this was not in any way a good film.

From the casting to the acting to the characters to to the story, this was in one word, disappointing.

I want to care about the people involved and what happens to them but with this miserable lot, I just wanted  it to end.

Would not have been good in the 1990s never mind 21st century:(

Average Low Budget SciFi - Sea Fever review by GI

Spoiler Alert
03/08/2021

Ambitious low budget scifi thriller that rips off Alien and The Thing, a little too obviously at time, but has some entertaining moments even if it's all a bit lame by the end. The film looks good and for the most part is well directed but let down by a sloppy script and poor characterisation. Hermione Corlfield plays Siobhán, a marine biology student, who joins a fishing trawler run by couple Gerard (Dougray Scott) and Freya (Connie Neilsen) so she can look for anomalies in fish stocks. The crew treat her with some suspicion due to the bad omen of her red hair. But Gerard desperate to get a good haul takes the boat into an excluded area where they encounter a strange parasitic creature that infects the boat. As members become gruesomely affected by this the survivors fall out with one another and rely on Siobhán to find a way to deal with the 'thing'. This falls on the age old cliché of man versus nature and the short running time means the story is rushed to a disappointing conclusion. For anyone who loved Life (2017) or similar then this may amuse as a piece of late night viewing but it's instantly forgotten.
