Last month, I wrote about “The Watermen,” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1715223/ a horror film being shot in Virginia in which a clan of commercial fishermen captures a crew of sport fishermen; trapped on an island, the anglers must fight for their lives.
Well, with Halloween little more than a week away, it seems only fitting to write about another horror movie being filmed that has a commercial fishing background. But it’s a horror movie of a different sort — one that’s all too real to New England fishermen.
