In the dark silence of the sea during World War II, the submarine U.S.S. Tiger Shark prowls on what should be a routine rescue mission. But for the shell-shocked crew, trapped together in the sub's narrow corridors and constricted spaces, this is about to become a journey into the sensory delusions, mental deceptions and runaway fear that lurk just below the surface of the ocean and deep inside the human psyche.Written by

The use of grappling hooks was not an anti-submarine tactic used by the German Kriegsmarine during World War II. That tactic was used by German and British naval forces during World War I, but only in shallow water. There are also reports of the Japanese Imperial Navy using hooks in the Pacific during World War II. See more »

This is almost a day behind us, sir.
Well who are they? Americans, Brits, Italians? It doesn't even say.
Well I think we can assume they're friendly, Mr. Loomis. Besides, it doesn't appear to be a suggestion, does it.

The only thing in the opening credits is the movie's title. Everything else is only shown after the movie is over. See more »
I don't recall this one being released, but it didn't do very well. However it had a very tidy story, some more or less decent acting, and was a visual treat.
The story seems pretty simple - WWII sub picks up a couple survivor, is pursed by a German ship, and then strange things start to happen and some secrets about various crew members are slowly revealed.
This is more of a thriller than a horror movie. While it does contain some jump scenes in it and some spooky goings on, one is left with a feeling of "was it just cabin fever?" As said, visually, this movie looked nice. It somewhat captured the cramped life on a sub and the tense moments they go through. However, some liberties were taken on the set design to provide more room. The class of sub they are on are not nearly as comfy as this would make one think.
Bruce Greenwood gives what I though was a very good performance. The movie can even stand up to a little bit of rewatch as well.
