Despite the fact that the water tank was heated with gas burners, many cast and crew members got so cold during filming that plastic hot tubs were set up outside the tank to keep them warm during breaks. See more »

In the Special Edition an alternate take of one scene replaces that found in the original cut of the film, namely when Lindsay is relaying Bud's text messages to the surface ship by radio. In the original version, when she reads the line "This is Virgil Brigman back on the air", she appears amused and relieved, and looks away from the display. In the Special Edition when Lindsay says that line, she looks bemused and mystified, and keeps her eyes on the screen. See more »
I like short reviews so I will try to keep this short!
Let me begin to tell you this movie is original! Not to many movies are being made that have an underwater setting.
The movie is about a drilling team who operate a high tech underwater drilling station deep under the sea. As soon as they become cut off from the surface in a storm near an underwater crevice things are getting a weird.
Strange in a way that the movie slowly shows that something scary and silent is there with them on the ocean floor. It builds suspension gradually until it ends within a climatic ending of the movie which I really liked (but some people have other opinions about that!)
Acting is great and the story very original with just enough action!
**** out of five!
