The colony of small, stalked plants that Hank finds in the sand and from which he collects a sample is Penicillus, which goes by the common name of Merman's Shaving Brush, Neptune's Shaving Brush, or Shaving Brush Plant. It's a type of green alga commonly found in the shallows of the Caribbean. See more »


On the deck of the submarine after swimming in the ocean, Maggie removes her bikini top clearly leaving her back bare. As she puts on the bathrobe we can clearly see the lines of a bra across her back under the bathrobe. See more »


Dr. Craig Mosby: Uh, what's the matter with *her*?
Dr. Orin Hillyard: Eh, well we got a phone message for you from Dr. Boren. Your first choice for a medic is unavailable, and there's no time to shop around.
Dr. Craig Mosby: You mean they're getting new tremors.
Dr. Orin Hillyard: Oh yeah, big ones.
Dr. Craig Mosby: Oh, boy.
Dr. Orin Hillyard: Uh, Boren says you've *got* to take Maggie, even if you *don't* want her, and um, unfortunately, that was the part of the conversation she overheard.

If you are a fan of "diverting natural disaster" films – you will enjoy this one.
13 November 2005 | by (Lexington, KY) – See all my reviews

Enhanced by beautiful underwater cinematography – complements of Clifford Pollard – Lloyd Bridges gave a spectacular performance recapturing my fond memories of "Sea Hunt". I seem to be giving this film the only positive comments however, I really did enjoy the adventure, suspense, and even the somewhat "campy" personal interaction between the characters. Also, excellent performances by David McCallum and Brian Kelly – whom I remember very fondly from "Man from Uncle" and "Flipper". I found the plot as plausible as other "diverting natural disaster" type films both present and past. As the film begins, increased seismic activity throughout the world is threatening to produce more frequent and stronger earthquakes. Lloyd Bridges and his well trained crew – scientists and experts in their own fields – borrow a submarine from the military to place sensors in the ocean for early worldwide earthquake detection. Going along for the ride with the 4 men and 1 woman crew were 2 scientific experimental guinea pigs. Disaster threatens the mission a couple of times when a giant sea inhabitant becomes entangled in the sub after trying to eat one of the crew. Also, an underwater volcano erupts burying half of the sub in molten lava. However, quick thinking and fast action from our heroes bring a happy ending to the story. If you are a fan of "diverting natural disaster" films – you will enjoy this one – however – you need to catch it on TV because there is no DVD available and VHS is very limited.
