Trivia

While the movie might have been filmed in Ontario, Canada, the film takes place in Maine. About 3:30 minutes into the film, you can see the the name of the boat, Lover, and its home port, Winterport, ME, painted on the transom. Reinforcing this fact, is Barnard Hughes's Down East accent for his character, boat captain Andy Borchard. See more »

can't believe I'm not alone
31 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too saw this as a youth of about ten and remember being very frightened. I love the internet because I searched mud man and found this. Amazing, as I have been looking for this for maybe two decades. Most interesting though is I remembered yet another film from my youth about a giant turtle. I found the made for TV movie THE BERMUDA DEPTHS to satiate that search. Now heres the kicker. Somebody did enough research to find the TV Guide listing for our beloved THE WORLD BEYOND, lo and behold what movie do you think played right after world beyond? You got it THE BERMUDA DEPTHS. Quite a fine evening of television as you see that one night of programming has haunted me for more than 20 years. Brilliant! http://home.earthlink.net/~usondermann/mud.html
