An American nuclear submarine encounters an alien species, which coincidentally causes massive electrical and hydraulic malfunctions, causing the sub to crash into an underwater cliff and sink. The navy asks the workers of a nearby underwater oil rig who are joined by a number of navy SEALS to locate and investigate the cause of the crash. As the crew embark on their mission, they encounter a number of difficulties and discover that they may not be alone. There is something else down there. Written by
A Facebook page exists for "Benthic Petroleum", the fictional company which owns and operates the drilling rig, and features an image of a promo for the company. The blurb on the poster footer reads "At Benthic Petroleum we drill deeper into the unknown than anyone else in the business. Why? That's where our future lies waiting, at the bottom of the deepest trenches. In the abyss." See more »

I like short reviews so I will try to keep this short!
Let me begin to tell you this movie is original! Not to many movies are being made that have an underwater setting.
The movie is about a drilling team who operate a high tech underwater drilling station deep under the sea. As soon as they become cut off from the surface in a storm near an underwater crevice things are getting a weird.
Strange in a way that the movie slowly shows that something scary and silent is there with them on the ocean floor. It builds suspension gradually until it ends within a climatic ending of the movie which I really liked (but some people have other opinions about that!)
Acting is great and the story very original with just enough action!
**** out of five!
