Only Could Have Been Made in the 70's, 27 July 2001

Ah! The 1970's when disaster films and sex films were hot, and independent directors and producers made whatever they felt like. Deep Jaws is a softcore sex film about a movie company gone bankrupt that jumps(no pun intended) on the bandwagon and makes pornography in order to stay afloat. They decide to make a film about "hungry" mermaids, thus combining the two genres in one film. You basically get what you would expect in a film like this: lots of sexual situations, plenty of nude women, adolescent, vulgar humour, weird folks, and even foul language. The girls are very attractive and their actions are photographed well. The acting is typically abysmal. The humour is very, very dated and the film contains all kinds of references to things going on at that time like the release of Jaws and movies like Deep Throat(hence the name Deep Jaws...get it?..Boy, someone must have worked overtime for that gem of an idea!). The direction, sets, costumes, etc... are all very low budget and the soundtrack is definitely from that era. Candy Samples plays the wife of the owner of the studio, and my biggest objection is we see all too little of her and her assets and talents. I cannot recommend the film for more than anything other than voyueristic curiosity.
