Trivia

The primal goo was actually glitter slime, a 1980s variety of Mattel's Slime toy. When it originally arrived on toy shelves in 1976, it was green and sold in small plastic trash cans. Other versions added soft plastic worms, eyeballs, and cartoon hero characters. It was made from guar gum, a thickener used in food products. See more »

horrible... absolutely abysmal
15 February 2007 | by mckrackenSee all my reviews

This soggy underwater "epic" just doesn't fall flat, it reaches new lows of horror movie depths and keeps submerging itself into its own murky abyss. Originally, it was made to compete with DeepStar Six and Leviathan, and even those movies were quickly forgotten after James Cameron's The Abyss. But ouch... this movie is REALLY REALLY bad.

This movie has ZERO redeeming qualities. Just a wet mess with some actors nobody cares about, a rubber suit that substitutes for a monster and FX so bad, they were outlawed in the 70s. The acting is atrocious, the directing is a joke, the editing is a mess. Actually this movie looks a lot like something from the 1950-60's rather than updated FX from 1989. It is indeed deserving of the classic "Direct-to-video" moniker that describes many sci/fi movies as flat Velveeta cheese.
