When oilman Paul Sturges and his family travel to Bahia Azul for a holiday in The Black Demon, they find an abandoned seaside hamlet with no inhabitants. Paul’s entire family unintentionally finds themselves on the corroding metal structure during a regular examination of his adjacent oil rig. To make matters worse, a monstrous megalodon, dubbed the Black Demon in local lore, rises up out of the ocean, a constant threat. Now, facing the age-old fear of the prehistoric shark, Paul must negotiate the dangerous seas and figure out how to get his family back to land safely.
Dashed Hopes from The Black Demon
“The Black Demon” movie has flickered a wave of disappointment and frustration among its fan base. Many moviegoers who were eagerly expecting the film have conveyed their dismay with various aspects of the production. From the plotline to the character development, fans have expressed their concerns about the movie not living up to their expectations. Some have pointed out that the pacing seemed off, while others felt that the dialogue was forced and lacked authenticity. The film’s deviation from the basic material also left eager fans feeling disconnected from what they had originally loved.
The CGI which was praised as a major highlight, didn’t escape criticism either, with some viewers deeming them excessive and surpassing the story’s expressive chasm. The overwhelming opinion seems to be one of missed potential, as fans had hoped for cinematic knowledge that would resonate with them on a deeper level. The backlash proceeds to unfold on social media and review outlets.

The Black Demon
I watched so you all don't have to! Great premise but poor execution. I'm guessing the original script was in Spanish and actually made sense, but got butchered when a European director came on board. That or the budget got slashed at the last minute. pic.twitter.com/P3ACK6r0K5

Do not watch The Black Demon. It will ruin your life. You will become grumpy, sour and an unbearable human being. For the rest of your life you will be consumed with trying to figure out how to get two hours of your life back.
Why is it called the Black Demon for protecting its home from human predators?#TheBlackDemon— Shelli Tweetz (@ShelliTweetz) August 23, 2023
The Black Demon is hard to describe just how bad this environmentalist fever dream spiritually convoluted garbage movie is. pic.twitter.com/evtBlFYFc2— Robonova (@Zorro3740) August 21, 2023
