Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre

The epic tale of a group of whale watchers whose ship breaks down – and they get picked up by a whaling vessel. Everything goes out of control.

Synopsis

A group of tourists gather on a whale watching vessel in Iceland anticipating the trip of a lifetime. When a freak accident leaves the captain of their boat mortally wounded and the first mate jumps ship, a small group of tourists are forced seek refuge on a passing former whaling vessel manned by a family of Fishbillies with a psychotic score to settle. With whaling no longer on the agenda, the tourists become the helpless prey aboard a ship that is set to sail on a sea of blood.
