 When I first attempted to view this movie, featuring a young Dennis Hopper, on a cheap-o DVD it was instantly sleep-inducing so I always assumed it was terrible but having now seen it all on a big screen the way God intended I can truthfully say that I don't think this movie is very good.  The acting is awful, it's horribly-paced, it's barely a horror film and the conclusion raises more questions than it answers.  It's kinda like if someone took a classic like CAT PEOPLE or CARNIVAL OF SOULS and did a really clunky version of them.  The story concerns a woman who may or may not be a mermaid that Hopper falls in love with(this part, of course, was reminiscent of SPLASH except it's not a comedy) and then some slighty horror-movie-ish themes are thrown in where our sea-lady might be a killer and/or monster.  I will say though that the movie at least has some historical significance and is probably worth at least seeing once since it's Hopper's first starring role
