During World War II, the passenger liner Goliath is sunk by a German submarine. Portions of the ship's hull remain airtight, and some of the passengers and crew survive. Over the decades they build a rigidly regulated society completely isolated from the surface world, until in contemporary times a diving team begins to explore the wreck.Written by

Scenes of the U-boat underwater, and of the U-boat crew preparing to attack the R.M.S. Goliath were taken from The Enemy Below (1957). See more »
In the credits, John McIntyre is listed as playing Samuel Bartholomew, however his wife calls him Oliver several times. See more »
Then you tell me why no one has challenged him to change his system.
How? With armed guards walking around & people believing how great he is? You'd end up in jail if you did. Like me. Or worse. You suddenly die of an affliction peculiar to Goliath. Mysterious affliction called Palmer's disease. And always fatal.

I remember this when it premiered in Nov. of 1981 when I was in the 7th grade. I remember the specifics very well, however other reviewers are wrong about a few of the facts. First off Christopher Lee's character was NOT the captain, he was the third officer of the ship and was in charge of the engine room. Second, the movie was not made to be a horror flick. I remember the T.V. Guide writeup about it then and it is a Mystery-Suspense story. Overall a very cool movie that had an interesting premise of what if? What if the Queen Mary sank or the Queen Elizabeth sank and what would the people be like after 40 years of isolation from the world. Lee is the most noteable when it comes to the acting. I like the other actors in the film but I will say that Mark Harmon, who is a good actor, in this one really overacted a few times. All in all a great story, decent acting and cool sets.
