There are very few scenes in the film that were actually shot underwater, as production went for the "dry for wet" look, with most of the scenes inside the Shack taking place on soundstages and a tank measuring 130ft x 270ft. See more »
One of the characters gets the length of her shift incorrect. The opening narration text states "Day 87 of 90 Day Shift". However, at about 11 minutes, Bow says, "It would be just my luck to finish two months' worth of work two miles under, and have the whole place fall apart with just three days left." See more »

The movie is an obvious Alien copy, only that it's settings have changed from outer space to under water.
In my opinion, '80s was the decade of low for good sci-fi movies. There were many really bad B sci-fi made during that time. But this is one of the few well made movies from that era.
If you're going to be cooped up in a small area, you might as well be with sexy good looking people like they did in this movie.
I liked the scene where "doc" just went right into the shower stall where Bowman was taking the shower, just saying "Bowman, it's doc". Doctor's privilege ?
I don't have much bad things to say about this movie except that in my opinion, they spoiled the movie at the last scene where the creature comes to the surface. The creature looked so fake that I think it destroyed the good image of the movie.
So asides from the ending, the movie was very well made, and was entertaining to watch.
