Synopsis:
During a traumatic accident whilst on a deep-sea dive in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, Olive (Anna Dawson), a gifted, young marine-biologist discovers an unearthly creature. Loosing her dream job, Olive smuggles the creature home, intent on studying it in her basement, unbeknownst to her devoted boyfriend Matt (Daniel Thrace). Whilst struggling to re-adjust to landlocked life and recover from her recent trauma, Olive begins to realize that she and the creature share a symbiotic bond that drives her to carry out its sinister will.
Plagued by gruesome nightmares, her fractured memories of what happened during the accident in the depths of the ocean begin to unravel and reveal an eldritch horror far older and malevolent than she could ever imagine, one which she has unwittingly set free. Olive's obsession leads to madness as her discovery consumes her entire humanity, with deadly results for those around her.

Lovecraft on a budget (mild spoilers) - The Creature Below review by NP

Spoiler Alert
30/10/2020

Some parts of this film are very reliant on fairly unconvincing CGI, giving some action scenes a cartoonish quality. This is a shame. So what do we do about this? Cry about it, because the budget clearly isn’t generous - or look for other aspects of ‘The Creature Beneath’ worthy of praise?

I’ve always applauded ambition in these projects, even if it doesn’t always pay off – but it is the quieter moments that impress here. The disintegrating relationship between Olive and her very decent boyfriend, her maternal feelings toward the titular creature and the increasingly extreme ways she goes to nourish it; the well-meaning sister’s desire to solve everything with alcohol.

Anna Dawson is sometimes a little flat as Olive, but her performance improves immeasurably once she comes under the influence of the Lovecraftian creature.

I enjoyed this. I liked the idea of a new ruling species coming to life in an outwardly respectable suburban house surrounded by unsuspecting neighbours. Occasionally the budget threatens to bring things down, but never succeeds. My score is 7 out of 10.
