Jason Mewes in The Watermen (2012)

Toss Overboard

For some the sea is their playground especially the super rich player Trailor (Jason Mewes) who with his friends and the girls he picks up in various clubs heads out to sea for some partying and fishing. But for others the sea is where they make their living and anyone who thinks about entering their world should think again. So when Trailor on his luxury yacht enters they fall foul of the Watermen who set about knocking them off to grind up their flesh to use as chum for fishing.

I am going to tell you about the most memorable and horrifying scene in "The Watermen" and don't worry as it isn't even a spoiler. There is a scene where Trailor and his friends are messing about chatting online via webcam and distorting the image and when he stands up his testicles are hanging out of his trousers which of course he messes about with on the webcam with the image being distorted. It is moronic yet simply the most memorable thing about "The Watermen" which as soon as it starts with a half dressed young woman running from a couple of guys with fish hooks lowers your expectations.

So as to "The Watermen" well I can review it by simply listing the cliches starting with the boat breaking down in the middle of nowhere with it being sabotaged and having no cell phone service being the equivalent of a cabin in the woods. We also have some decent young guys who you know will end up heroes and some young women who spend most of the time in their bikinis. And then there is the equivalent of the in bred locals with the Watermen with their thinning but long greasy hair and array of scars. This is really just a cabin in the woods style movie but done at sea with people chopped up for bait. It is as basic as it sounds and not that entertaining especially when it comes to being a horror movie.

What this all boils down to is that "The Watermen" is poor and other than that one Jason Mewes scene is utterly forgettable.
