The school of jellyfish featured in the movie showed up on the day the crew planned to film that particular scene; it was not switched to film that scene on behalf of the jellyfish. Coincidentally, after that day, no jellyfish ever appeared on location for the whole duration of the shoot. See more »

Hey Don. It's Daniel. Listen, don't put the boiler in until I get back. The framing inspection isn't for a couple of weeks, so we've got plenty of time. And I'll check in with you guys in a couple of days, OK? Take care. Bye.

When I first saw the movie cover of Open Water, I thought to myself OH GREAT! Another movie about sharks, what next? As I walked through the video store today, my younger brother insisted that I watch it. I thought to myself, do I really want to watch this, especially with it being about people lost at sea? So I rented it. After viewing it, I was left in a stage of sadness and could not believe what I had just seen. The plot was so turned around in the end that I was just left with my expressions still showing after viewing it. This movie was beyond an excellent thriller. It was like no other film I had ever seen before. I expected the same ending that most shark films had but it had a different ending than what I thought it would end up being. I was amazed at how unique this film was.
It is Movies like these that keep you wanting more and more of suspense.
