here are two common things we can count on when it comes to horror movies. Horror movies that explore unknown deep space horrors and those that explore unknown deep sea horrors. Sea Fever categorizes as the latter, and is a tense film that is about a woman who joins a crew of a fishing trawler. She finds herself feeling unwelcome especially with the fact she is a red head which is a bad omen. Suddenly their ship is ensnared by...something, and she and crew must contend with a strange infection that starts to spread after the incident.
This becomes a scenario very familiar to viewers of John Carpenter's The Thing, especially when the crew discovers another ship which is seemingly abandoned. But what they find there is a sign of things to come. Also with what happens will be familiar because eventually the crew are forced to quarantine themselves, which is exactly what we were faced with when covid hit us. Ever since covid, I been noticing more and more films in the realm of pandemic horror. It would make sense as most of us are trying to deal with the real fears of this virus and feeling shut in with having to do our part to avoid potentially infecting others. There are scenes in this movie where people have the same genuine reactions when they realize they have no choice but to do what's necessary as well as not knowing who might be infected. And sometimes that leads to them to take extreme measures.
This movie will definitely keep you glued to the screen throughout, and the ending will leave you breathless as it's not a very happy one . Sea Fever is currently streaming on Hulu, and I do recommend checking it out. If you already seen this film, feel free to leave your thoughts below!!
