HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP (d.n.a. 5) (1996 U.S.) D/W: SCOTT YONIS P: MICHAEL AMATO
Here`s another one of those useless Roger Corman remakes that debuted on Showtime. Robert Carradine`s docklands company dumps toxic waste into the sea against his wishes. His teen daughter hangs out with an enviromental protestor (Justin Walker) who`s out to catch the culprits on film. Scientist Emma Samms spouts nonsence about test subjects injected with salmon D.N.A (?). The result is scaly monster suit monsters that cocoon women in an underwater cave to bare their children. Unlike the shocking original, we don`t see gill-men raping topless women, so there`s no reason to watch it. Clint Howard is amusing as the Sheriff. With Bert Remsen, Season Hubley, Mark Rolston, Harrison Young and Robert Peters.
