‘A grip your seat creature feature’
Razortooth is a 2007 American horror film directed by Patricia Harrington (a Roger Corman alumnus: writer of To Sleep with a Vampire; actress in Carnosaur; electrician on Sorority House Massacre II.
The film includes a brief clip from Corman’s The Little Shop of Horrors. Meanwhile, the local bar is named Kormann’s and includes a flashing neon sign: “cheap”). The film’s working title was apparently Sssslither.
The screenplay was by Jack Monroe (he has a cameo as the ‘chubby deputy’) and Matt Holly.

Razortooth is helped along by some mildly amusing dialogue during the first hour and although we’re in monster movie cliché central, it’s acceptable fare. Unfortunately, overall, there are simply not enough CGI eel attacks – or even a convincingly nasty critter – to make this one a winner. It’s a shame because with a little more beastie action this could have been a contender like Frankenfish rather than a loser like Snakehead Terror.
