Amphibious is a 2010 creature thriller film which is directed by Brian Yuzna[1] and written by Yuzna, John Penney, Somtow Sucharitkul and San Fu Maltha.[2] It stars Francis Magee, Janna Fassaert and Michael Paré.[3]


Skyler Shane, a marine biologist, meets Jack Bowman, at a northern Sumatran lake to search for prehistoric samples. During this expedition, they encounter some smugglers who have their headquarters on the lake. Tamal, an orphan who was sold to the smugglers as a slave, begs Skyler to save her. Since the child reminds Skyler of her lost daughter Rebecca, she agrees, not knowing what secret is lurking in the water. Ever since Tamal has been on the lake, strange things have been happening: more and more people disappear and are devoured by a creature from the deep.
