Twas the era of underwater films!
5 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

This underwater adventure rode the wave of waterlogged films coming out in 1989 (THE ABYSS, DEEP STAR SIX, LEVIATHAN, THE RIFT, LORDS OF THE DEEP, etc.). While the excellent cover sells the horror aspect, the film is closer to THE DEEP with treasure diving adventure taking up a majority of the running time. Horror elements do pop up though in the form of black magic, a big killer eel and a undead protagonist (who is never really explained). Stars Wayne Crawford of JAKE SPEED fame as the equally bizarre named Max Cash. Crawford is pleasant enough and somehow he ends up the object of every woman's affection in the film. How did he manage that? Oh yeah - he directed it! I guess that is as good as reason as any.
