Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.10.20] Ireland (Republic of) scifi thriller

Irish writer/director Neasa Hardiman started her career in the world of documentaries but for the last few years she's been on a deep-dive into TV, shooting everything from teen dramas ("Tracy Beaker Returns") and crime dramas ("Happy Valley") to superheroes ("Inhumans" and "Jessica Jones"), but for her sophomore effort, Hardiman is directing an original script she also wrote, one which has a decisively different feel.

Sea Fever stars Hermione Corfield as Siobhán, a marine biology student who finds herself aboard a fishing trawler captained by Gerard (Dougray Scott) and Freya (the great Connie Nielsen). Shiobhán is there to observe changes in sea life by photographing the crew's catch but when the crew becomes infected by a mysterious parasite, the movie turns into a horrific tale of survival.

I love a great creature feature and the element of being stuck at sea and said creature being water-born adds an interesting twist to Sea Fever and while this is Corfield's first leading role, she has a great supporting team in Scott and Nielsen.

Sea Fever premiered at TIFF last year and also played at Fantastic Fest to favourable reviews. It opens theatrically and will be available on VOD on April 10.
