SOLD OUT: PLANKTON (AKA CREATURES OF THE ABYSS) (1994) – 25th January 2024, Bristol Improv Theatre

“I have the feeling that the secret of this ship is somehow tied to these strange fish.”

Just when you thought 2024 was safe from bad movies, we’re back with an Italian production that takes us back to the era of big hair, not-so-special effects and mutant sea creatures!

Director Alvaro Passeri had previously used his animation skills on the likes of Cinema Paradiso and The Wild Beasts, but is able to wringe every penny out of this low budget horror that sees a group of horny teens faced the results of science run amok!

Reminiscent of Troll 2 with its insane dialogue and wonderfully insane visual effects, Plankton is the perfect way to get the year off to a flying (fish) start!

Five teenagers embark on a boating trip off the coast of Florida. The teens get hopelessly lost at sea after they get caught in a fierce storm. Fortunately, the quintet stumble across an abandoned yacht in the middle of the ocean with a mysterious biology lab on board it. Unfortunately, there are also ferocious mutated prehistoric fish running amok on the yacht. Will any of the teens survive this harrowing ordeal?

This film and event is certified ’18’.

Please note that unfortunately this screening will NOT be subtitled.
