THE PLOT

A unpleasant looking man is transforms himself into a Jellyfish creature. His name is Egon and he's an assistant to a brillant biologist who is studying life in the swamp, he did this to prove his crazy theory about growing a Portugese Man-A-War to a huge size. A group of teenagers shows up at the house for a party, can any of them escape the wrath of the deranged monster? It's up to the scientist amd his other assitant to find the truth and stop Egon's rampage.

THE OPINION (BRACE YOURSELF!!)

I can't pick what's worse about this movie, but here's a quick list for those playing the home game.:
ACTING
FILM QUALITY
EFFECTS
MONSTER
The so-called monster is a guy in a freakin' diving suit wearing a balloon on his head with wires hanging from his so-called neck. The Man-A-War's a nothing but balloons also. Here's a hint, Portugese Man-A-Wars are not colorful. Do NOT waste your time on this piece of mule dropings!!
I GIVE IT (THE NOOSE)

ON THE POSITVE SIDE (+HITS)

+NEIL SEDAKA (The song DO THE JELLYFISH was clever)
+PREMISE (The premise of mad scientist turning into a Jellyfish was good, but like allot of these low budget losers they failed on the follow through)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES)

-ACTING (I'VE SEEN SCHOOL PLAYS WITH BETTER ACTING)
-EFFECTS (The so-called slashes of the stings of death was just paint)
-MONSTER (It was just a guy with a balloon on his head)
and Finally:
-BALLOONS (Jellyfish are a jelantonus animal, if they were filled with air, they'd be ballonfish!! And Man-A-Wars are not multi-colored!!!)
