Trivia

On "Post Mortem with Mick Garris," director Johannes Roberts said the filming the underwater scenes generally started at 8 AM, where he would prep the actors on what to do for the scene, then they would set up and shoot until 1 PM, when they would wrap for the day. See more »

Goofs

At 47m, without direct light, blood looks green, not red, as spectrums of light are filtered out by the water. However, there are powerful lights attached to the cage and divers have flashlights, which would negate the effect of depth and explain why the red color is visible (both for blood and for the red patches on dive suits).

A cage dive you'd not want to be in.
3 March 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

How often do you watch a film from this genre and are made to watch 90 minutes of bad acting, unrealistic sharks, poor camerawork etc, my expectations weren't too high, and I for one was pleasantly surprised. This film is actually really well made, it's very solid, it's well acted, and it manages to generate both terror and claustrophobia, in a way I wasn't expecting. That ending also, talk about out of the Blue ;-) Beautifully filmed, superb location work, sharks that although maybe a little out of character to say the least certainly looked good, and of course added to the terror.

Pleasantly surprised. 7/10
