The film's theme title song, "Down Deep Inside (Theme From The Deep)", was a collaboration between composer John Barry and disco queen Donna Summer. The song was nominated for a Golden Globe Best Original Song Award with a slower tempo version of the song included on the movie soundtrack. An extended version of the song was later launched on Summer's CD version of her 1978 album "Live and More". The song went to No. #6 on the Dutch Top 40 Chart; No. #5 on both the UK Singles Chart and the Netherlands GfK Chart and No. #3 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play Chart. Summer would go on to appear and sing in Thank God It's Friday (1978), again for the same production house, Casablanca Filmworks, that made The Deep (1977). For that movie, Summer's song won an Oscar. See more »

Saw this on HBO with my parents one vacation. I like this movie, it has a story which includes suspenses, horror, mystery and action. Not too many movies have this combination. Great acting by Shaw, his role is on par with Jaws. The under water filming is the best of any under water film. Then tension and fear with the under water scenes leave an impression on one's mind. A classic shown on TBS late night, I will tape the next time I see it on. They usually show the movie The Island afterwards, I never seen that one; I wonder if it is any good being the second feature. Rent it, tape it, or buy it! You will not be disappointed. 8/10
