Underwater adventure with magnificent acting by Vincent Price as mean smuggler
WAR GODS OF DEEP contains fantastic adventures full of sea-monsters in a lost continent placed underwater . Set on the Cornish coast in 1903, the film starts when a body is washed ashore on a remote seacoast little town , it originates an investigation by an American named Ben Harris (Tab Hunter). He goes to the home where the dead had been an advocate and encounters tracks that indicate that the gorgeous Jill (Susan Hart) may be in deadly risk . Establishing menace and seeing off a suspicious strange monster like a gill-man who he trapped in the act of robbing a portrait of Jill but he gets escape . In the overnight Jill is abducted and Ben and Harold (David Tomlinson ) chase him. Finding a tunnel system going under the sea they walk across a dangerous rout . The duo discovering an underwater band of smugglers who never age residing in a lost underwater city along with their gill-man slaves . The group of people find inhabitants of the lost world that are ruled by one megalomaniac named Sir Hugh (Vincent Price)who has discovered the secret of eternal life but is desperate to avoid his world being destroyed by an eruption caused by a relentless volcano . Sir Hugh governs over the gill-men as slavers and wishes to rule the human beings and the creation a totalitarian state.
Based on Edgar Allan Poe writings with interesting screenplay by Charles Bennett . This fantasy picture packs thrills, weird sea monsters, lively pace and fantastic scenarios located undersea . Vincent Price is the real star of this production and its chief attribute such as Robur the conquer . The tale is silly and laughable but the effects and undersea scenes are quite well. Among the most spectacular of its visuals there are a deeply shrouded caverns full giant sculptures in Persyian style . Some illogical parts in the argument are more than compensated for the excitement provided by Vincent Price acting and the sea-monsters appearance , though sometimes are a little bit shoddy . Cheesy underwater city with mediocre matte painting .Filmed in glimmer cinematography by Stephen Dade on location in Cornwall Coast, Cornwall, England, Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, England, UK (studio). Colorful and stirring musical score by Stanley Black . The motion picture is produced by American International (James H Nicholson , Samuel Z. Arkoff) in average budget and middling directed by the classic director Jacques Tourneur in his final feature . He is an expert on terror cinema (Cat people , Curse of the demon, I walked with a Zombie) and adventures (Flame and the arrow ) . ¨City under the sea¨ will appeal to youngsters who swallow whole and sit convulsed in their armchair and of course Vincent Price fans.
