The Best Use Of Sound Effects In Screen History
29 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

The teaser (the start) of this episode has the best use of sound effects in screen history. What could of been just another season two flying sub crash is turned into something more interesting by the sound effects guy. As the out-of-control flying sub tumbles out of the blue sky (that is real blue sky not studio sky) and a well directed Richard Basehart struggles to control the falling apart craft...what do you hear? No music at all just an often used 20th Century Fox sound effect that sounds so cool when matched to what is happening on the screen!

After this teaser we get into the story more and the constant use of Enemy Below (1957) stock footage is not so pleasing to me because I own a wonderful DVD print of this film, so why watch it in edited form on a Voyage/Sea episode?

The non-stock-stuff: Full marks must go to the look of the down and dirty enemy sub crew, the colour seasons of Voyage featured a few enemy subs and it is too bad the crews of these subs did not look more like this bunch here. This crew and the knockout teaser make Killers Of The Deep well worth watching.
