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

The girls were told to do a 5 minute decompression stop at 20 meters. At the depth they were and with the amount of time they were underwater, this would not be sufficient and an additional safety stop would be needed at 5 meters. Instead they were told to then swim directly to the surface. This would likely have killed them due to decompression sickness. See more »

User Reviews

 
Everybody knows shark attack movies aren't realistic, so calm down.
10 February 2019 | by donttouchmeprimateSee all my reviews

Had a flick through the comments here and I saw a bunch of 1's from people complaining about coast guard tactics, ocean safety and even "shark behaviour". IT'S A MONSTER SURVIVAL MOVIE! Just calm down and watch it for what it is. Lame and uninteresting characters, a boat, ocean, sharks. Followed by cheap jump scares.

Sure, it's nothing new, but it holds its own.

But hey, what do I know, when I was young, my brother and I stood on a beach in Wales screaming at a dead crab for a good 5 minutes.
