Sea Fever revolves around Siobhán, a marine biology student coming to Ireland’s seashore to complete her doctorate. She is assigned to a fishing trawler that ends up in a no-go zone while looking for the big catch. The ship gets trapped at sea after myriads of unfathomable creatures latch onto its hull. The crew must pull together to survive. Sea Fever borrows stylistically from The Thing and Jaws but focuses more on people facing extreme danger rather than monsters. It will not blow you mind with stunning visual effects but will sure keep you in suspense to the very last scene.
