“Grime and gore”

Films: Creature from the Hillbilly Lagoon (2005)

Alias: Various, notably Cooter

Type: Mutant

Location: Swamp/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of average humans.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Gillmen are out there, either looking for love in all the wrong places or just in the mood for some bloody havoc. In this case, would we want to know. Because frankly, everything about this beast and the place it inhabits is disgusting.

History: Deep within the heavily contaminated and polluted waters of Hillbilly Lagoon, there is a humanoid fish monster out to placate its pitiful existence with the taste of man-flesh. But as it turns out, there are more sinister forces at work. The lead scientist of the corporation perpetrating this mutation is actually working on multiple fish mutants, hoping to create the next step in evolution. But the problem is that all of them are male. Thankfully, all this lady psycho needs to do is control the monsters into mating with human females. If they don't eat them, first.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After one mutant, Cooter, is shot to death, one guy manages to get a hold of a remote control used for the beasts. He then uses it to have the lead mutant sex up the evil scientist. However, there are still mutants on the loose, so there might need to be some clean-up.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: They can be controlled via remote, likely due to microchips in their brains. Also, anything conventional helps.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-The low budget on these creatures is rather embarrassing, but not entirely fruitless. The close-ups of their teeth in particular are rather cringe-worthy, and they are violent beings. Still, few things are as adorably hilarious as a fishman wearing a pink maid's outfit and serving tea to a madwoman.

Trivia: -To give you an idea of how low-budget this affair was, the underground base was a laser tag room, characters were recast at the last minute, and a lot of dialogue was improvised.

-This whole thing took only sixteen days to shoot.
