"SEA OF FEAR isn't a very suspenseful movie, folks. A group of seven people take a pleasure cruise, stop on some deserted island, reveal their darkest fears and then start getting murdered one by one.
Edward Albert, Katherine Bailess and Christopher Showman "headline" the cast, but offer little in their performances to elevate the muddled, preposterous and twist-ridden plot. It's like TEN LITTLE INDIANS on a sailboat, but nowhere near as intriguing. This one sinks."

"The premise of the movie is interesting. I mean, who doesn't like a murder mystery, especially the idea of it being at sea, characters disappearing one by one and the audience wondering who it will be? It was enough to make me want to go rent this movie.
However, the problems with this movie come from a plethora of areas. First of all, the acting is pretty atrocious. The characters seem a little wooden, seemingly just going through the motions of the script, and, because of this, many of the scenes kind of just die (no pun intended). Another perplexing element is the preposterousness of having a killer aboard a tiny boat, and no one seemingly being able to see or figure out who it is. Are we to believe that no one can hear the victim's screams as they are being attacked? Perhaps the most annoying aspect of the film is the over abundance of plot twists (as one reviewer mentioned), and the attempt to explain them all away in the film's final twenty to thirty minutes. This really is a disservice to anyone who actually tried to follow the film. The dark and murky camera scenes make it hard to figure out what is going on much of the movie. Finally, what's with the odd choice of background music during the film? This completely kills any sense of suspense this movie is supposed to have.
This is an average movie at best. At worst, it isn't very good."

"Hell's Bells! Can't quite think of what the makers of this one were imagining. Not bad photography and an intriguing premise can't save this improbable, poorly acted thriller from losing its way early on. Entire scenes begin and end, and nothing of any consequence happens...then, when the passengers start disappearing (on a boat so small this plot device is inconceivable) logic disappears as well. The crowd I watched this with threatened to mutiny, especially in the film's excruciating last half hour, in which the "mystery" is revealed. I wish the director more success in his future efforts: he does understand the widescreen, but Mother of Poseidon, this one really misses the mark."
Do the twist, till you tire!!!

"The cast of this film seemed mostly Australian using Americanized accents. Watching "Sea of Fear' was definitely "different", for one thing, the murders took place very rapidly. It was easy to get a motion sickness from the endlessly rocking boat and easier to get a little weary of the dark lighting.
If I can say something good of the film it would be that the end was a shocker. However, the shocks kept coming with the same lightening speed of murders. Twist after twist after twist in the final 20 minutes put me in a tailspin and had me dancing in the streets of anguish.
I will never dance again, I got Twist Fatigue!"
