There are very few scenes in the film that were actually shot underwater, as production went for the "dry for wet" look. With most of the scenes inside the Shack taking place on soundstages and a tank measuring 130ft x 270ft. See more »
You can see a crew member, probably the camera assistant, visible in the lower left hand corner of the mirror when Beck and the doctor are talking when the disease first makes its appearance. See more »

Look at my foot! This bitch put a goddamn sea monster in my bunk!
How do you know it was her?
It was her, goddammit! What, are you calling me a liar, Beck?

The movie is an obvious Alien copy, only that it's settings have changed from outer space to under water.
In my opinion, '80s was the decade of low for good sci-fi movies. There were many really bad B sci-fi made during that time. But this is one of the few well made movies from that era.
If you're going to be cooped up in a small area, you might as well be with sexy good looking people like they did in this movie.
I liked the scene where "doc" just went right into the shower stall where Bowman was taking the shower, just saying "Bowman, it's doc". Doctor's privilege ?
I don't have much bad things to say about this movie except that in my opinion, they spoiled the movie at the last scene where the creature comes to the surface. The creature looked so fake that I think it destroyed the good image of the movie.
So asides from the ending, the movie was very well made, and was entertaining to watch.
