Some of the sub's equipment and sound effects were recycled from The Fly (1958). See more »
The Admiral says that the minefield the Seaview runs into is too deep for divers (meaning that the pressure would be too great) so they send out the minisub. However, the minisub is a "wet" sub, meaning that the cabin is filled with water and the occupants have to wear breathing gear. Therefore the divers would be subjected to the same pressure whether they were in the sub or not. See more »
U.S.O.S. Seaview calling Washington. Come in, Washington.
Twenty-five hours of static in my ear. Man, I'm getting shell-shocked.

Now this is sci fi, I like to see. An underwater adventure, involving a powerful nuclear submarine that moves like the great blue whale. Only a different color. I first saw the lunch box when I was in New York, and there was the title, the sub, and the menacing red octopus attacking a mini-sub. The cast of the movie were perfect. I would later remember that Barbara Eden("I Dream of Jeanine") and Michael Ansara(The Blue Djinn) have their memorable roles 4 years later on TV. She really puts on a show in the break room when the Lt. plays his trumpet down hard! The scenes are amazing, and I think that octopus is really a minor threat in the movie. He looks too uncooperative. The special effects are good, and the backgrounds, are OK. This movie is one of the best in scifi. I wouldn't disagree with anyone about it! Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
