Something terrifying is lurking just out of sight: a deadly force from the unexplored depths of the ocean that begins to snatch the horrified intruders one by one! Written by

Stephen Sommers began writing the script, then called "Tentacle", when he worked at Hollywood Pictures in the mid-90s. See more »
When the creature first strikes the ship, we see it attack from under the hull and towards the moving engine propellers. At this point in the film the engines, communication and emergency systems had been disabled by sabotage, hence the propellers should have been idle and not in full motion. See more »

Full Scream Ahead..? Better than your average slick..!
I bought this DVD last week. I've watched it for the first time with some friends. I must admit, that must be some movie.. Here, director Stephen Sommers try to prove that if Aliens scared you.. Then this one will do worse.. Well, it did at times.. The whole plot sounds simple to me.. with these bunch of thieves coming on board this cruise liner, the Argonautica.. Only to find that the passengers have vanished. It's not 'til they realise that they up against something more deadly and it came from the bottom of the ocean.. We're not talking giant squids here.. Something more sinister..
Treat Williams played well as Finnegan. Famke Janssen, Wes Studi and the rest of the cast kept their end of the bargain with their performance. A really good film, full of one liners.. A few jokes.. This, that and the other..
7 out of 10!
