Did You Know?


Originally the eels in the film were going to be created by the American CGI team, and looked similar to a giant moray eel with a more sinister grin. But to save money, the American eel was scrapped, and the work was handed to the Bulgarian CGI team. See more »


When a torpedo is launched, the head of the Hubris science complex, who is addressed as "Commander" (a naval rank) informs the United Nations Command Center buy saying, "Bird away."

Is the world poised for doom? Is this the eel deal?
14 December 2003 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

A mediocre Sci-Fi Channel original picture. A little squirmish, but not much. The nuclear powered submarine U.S.S. Jimmy Carter is on a mission deep below thick frigid ice near the North Pole when it is attacked by giant super charged electric eels. A member of the crew (Simmone Jade Mackinnon)thinks she has devised a way to communicate with the monsters, but is not given much chance for vague reasons. Also among the crew are:David Keith, Mark Sheppard and Sean Whalen. This movie could have been somewhat better if the eels/monsters were not so cartoonish.
