A pair of young vacationers are involved in a dangerous conflict with treasure hunters when they discover a way into a deadly wreck in Bermuda waters. Featuring extended underwater sequences and a look into the affairs of treasure hunting. Based on a novel by Peter 'Jaws' Benchley. Written by
The movie's main movie poster mimicked the poster for Jaws (1975). Instead of a killer shark at the bottom of the sea and a girl atop the water swimming, the poster featured a girl where the shark had been positioned, and looking like she was struggling to swim to the top. The blurb evoked Jaws (1975) suspense with the tagline, "Is anything worth the terror of The Deep?". See more »

Treasure hunt underwater, romantic music of John Barry
I have the movie on Video, would buy it on DVD, I have read all the other reviews and surprised nobody mentioned the great music by John Barry. The theme made it to the radio top hits in 1977 For me, the music makes this movie, together with the three main stars including Shaw, Nolte and the beautiful Jacqueline Bisset. Is there an actress today quite so stunning? Don't think so... The Deep probably did not have the impact of Peter Benchley's Jaws but I like it just as much. The music is more melodic, the warmer location Bermuda, in contrast to the cooler Cape Cod of Jaws. I always appreciate a good treasure hunt anyway, Spanish doubloons and the possibility of reef predators adds interest. Watch it just to see Bisset in skimpy scuba swimsuit... you won't be disappointed
