Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Writer Lewis Abernathy sold his script at the same time that friend James Cameron was working on his own "underwater monster saga". Despite Cameron's asking that he delay this movie to avoid competing with The Abyss (1989), Abernathy went ahead and was thereby deemed persona non grata with Cameron and associates until they patched together their friendship when Abernathy accompanied Cameron on the September 1995 filming of the wreck of the Titanic for Titanic (1997) (but not any actual dives to the wreck itself).

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

The ending, when the monster surprises two survivors on a raft, is very similar to the ending in Friday the 13th (1980), also directed by Sean S. Cunningham.
