In the dark silence of the sea during World War II, the submarine U.S.S. Tiger Shark prowls on what should be a routine rescue mission. But for the shell-shocked crew, trapped together in the sub's narrow corridors and constricted spaces, this is about to become a journey into the sensory delusions, mental deceptions and runaway fear that lurk just below the surface of the ocean and deep inside the human psyche.

Some filming for this movie took place on an actual WW2 submarine. The USS Silversides (which is available for tours) located in Muskegon Michigan was towed out into the middle of Lake Michigan where scenes with Bruce Greenwood were filmed. The Silversides had some minor re-painting done (rust coloration), but is now back to her original gray color. The rest of the sets and models used in this movie were all based on the look and layout of the Silversides. See more »
All wet lead acid batteries release hydrogen when charging, this explosive gas gets trapped in the batteries and doesn't fully vent after charging, and can create an explosive localized atmosphere under many situations. The hydrogen is from the electrolytic action of the acid and the lead plates, having electricity run through them reforming the plates and releasing excess hydrogen from the H2SO4 (sulfuric acid) that develops as a result of the battery discharging.

[hands coordinates to Loomis]
This is almost a day behind us, sir.
Well who are they? Americans, Brits, Italians? It doesn't even say.
Well I think we can assume they're friendly, Mr. Loomis. Besides, it doesn't appear to be a suggestion, does it.

The only thing in the opening credits is the movie's title. Everything else is only shown after the movie is over. See more »
Interesting mix of a ghost story, WWII submarine thriller and murder mystery, with a topnotch cast headed by Olivia Williams as a nurse rescued from a torpedoed hospital ship and Bruce Greenwood as a submarine commander with a secret. Must have been a U.S.-U.K. coproduction, since much of the cast is made up of Brits playing Americans, but what the hey. It's a solid production through-and-through. Came out at the same time as the much-ballyhooed GHOST SHIP, with little or no marketing, and thus was overlooked in theaters. A must-see for thriller fans.
