The Roger Corman cult classic returns in a Special Edition with brand new extras! A race of scientifically created half-human, half-salmon monstrosities lay siege to a Pacific Northwest fishing village. In horrific fashion, the mutated creatures kill the men and mate with the women in order to reproduce. Can the Humanoids From the Deep be stopped before they destroy mankind as we know it?
Two years after the success of Piranha, Corman and New World Pictures went back to the water and came up with Humanoids from the Deep. This movie was a box office success, but also proved unexpectedly controversial. Credited director Barbara Peters (billed as Barbara Peeters) contended that many of the film’s gorier (and to some, more memorable) scenes had been added to the film after principal photography. Then the MPAA threatened to slap the film with an X rating unless some of its more shocking moments were edited down or eliminated altogether. Nevertheless, Humanoids from the Deep became one of New World Pictures’ most popular releases up to that point.
