Trivia

Like many shark movies, 47 Meters Down portrays its sharks in a slightly exaggerated way, i.e. with more aggression. But Outpost worked with the director to retain as much of the 'classic' aspects of shark behavior as possible while still creating the feeling of terror and panic for a horror film. Says Kolendo: "We looked at how the jaws behave when a shark attacks, what the gills are doing when it turns in anger, how fast is the tail moving to propel the massive body, and then we added that extra few percent to exaggerate the action, creating a shark that is not only believable, but also terrifying."

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).

Quotes

Sammie: Oh, it's like you're going to the zoo - except you're in the cage.
