The cast of scruffy sea adventurers have obvious parallels with the crew of the Nostromo in Scott's classic, but aside from the late, great Miguel Ferrer as the cowardly technician, Snyder, they're an anonymous bunch of actors largely culled from American TV; Taurean Blacque was best known for his role in Hill Street Blues, while Nancy Everhard, as the vaguely Ripley-esque Joyce, had made appearances in such 80s staples as Airwolf and The A-Team. The real star of the show, we suppose, is the prehistoric monster, designed by Chris Wallas. The only trouble is, it takes what feels like an absolute eternity for the beast to arrive; in the meantime, we have to put up with soap opera character exchanges "You're pregnant!
The fun doesn't really start until the last half hour, when the big, brown, wobbly sea creature which looks uncannily like one of the Graboids out of Tremors leaps from an airlock and bites one of the supporting characters clean in half. Thereafter, DeepStar Six moves along like an early cousin of Renny Harlin's similarly watery Deep Blue Sea, as the remaining survivors paddle around a flooded base with an angry monster in their midst in DeepStar Six, it's an aquatic dinosaur of some sort; in Deep Blue Sea, the predators are clever sharks. Our favourite bit? The sequence where Miguel Ferrer's character accidentally harpoons one of his friends, runs off in a panic, then explodes from rushing to the surface too quickly in an escape pod.
It's not quite Scanners , but it's still fairly gruesome. Best line: "Don't be an idiot! We'll all decompress! We'll explode like a bunch of ripe melons! Of all the sub- Abyss water movies, Leviathan has by far the best pedigree. In sci-fi story terms, Leviathan is no less schlocky than DeepStar Six, though the expanded budget and work from cinematographer Alex Thomson Legend, Labyrinth, John Boorman's Excalibur means it's far better shot and lit. Again, the plot follows the Alien format: the monster doesn't appear until the midpoint, by which time we've met the neurotic cast and observed several blinking and beeping computer displays.
Then there's the quirkily creative way the monster gets inside the deep-sea mining platform: the mutant-making disease we mentioned earlier is stored inside a bottle of vodka discovered on a derelict Soviet vessel. Within hours of drinking the spiked hooch, several crewmembers begin to undergo hideous mutations until, by act three, there are all kinds of gelatinous fish-beasts running around the place.
Leviathan 's debt to John Carpenter's The Thing is obvious, and if the creature effects aren't as horrifyingly beautiful as the ones Rob Bottin made in that flat-out classic, then director George P Cosmatos at least keeps things going at an entertaining clip. Other highlights include Meg Foster as the obligatory cold, uncaring corporate type curiously, the expected moment where she's revealed to be a robot never comes , a scene where Michael Carmine's attacked by a giant eel, and Amanda Pays delivering one of the cheapest jump-scares in cinema history.motipocksualrio.ga

Best line: "You don't know shit about skiing, man! They don't have skiing in Spanish Harlem! Producer Roger Corman wasn't slow in jumping on the post- Alien sci-fi horror bandwagon with such films as Galaxy Of Terror and Forbidden World , so it probably wasn't surprising that he quickly caught wind of the " Alien under the ocean" zeitgeist at the same time as Leviathan and DeepStar Six. In fairness, your humble writer hasn't seen this film since the VHS days of the early 90s, so memories of this Corman joint directed by Mary Ann Fisher, who produced such Z-grade wonders as Android and Battle Beyond The Stars are somewhat fuzzy.
Where those undersea nightmares featured a prehistoric sea creature and mutant fish-men respectively, Lords Of The Deep sees a bunch of scientists encounter a race of aquatic aliens that - as in The Abyss - turn out to be peaceful sorts in the end. Curiously, the aliens even look like the ones Cameron came up with in The Abyss translucent, manta ray type things , there's a human villain Bradford Dillman's Commander Dobler and there's even a Big Theme war in The Abyss, destruction of the environment in Lords Of The Deep.
We're firmly back in horror territory with this relatively late entry in the undersea sci-fi genre, which features a surprisingly decent cast of character actors: R Lee Ermey, Ray Wise and TV star Jack Scalia Remington Steele, Dallas.

Drinking coffee while watching the sunrise is something that I look forward to every morning. Knowing that I get to work on projects that are contributing to the knowledge of Indigenous fisheries is what actually gets me up in the morning. I come from the Tsimshian people, my crest is the Gisbutwada orca , and I belong to the Gitwilgyoots People of the Kelp tribe. My passions are fish, streams, and oceans. My career path has allowed me to study juvenile salmon, track Dungeness crab, monitor Indigenous fisheries, and see most of my traditional territory.
My passions are driven by my culture and living a traditional way of life. My favorite type of Indigenous fishery to participate in is for eulachon. I chose to work in fisheries because this is what is closest to my heart and where I feel I can make the most difference for my community.
I have two dogs, both who get a lot of my attention! I have a husky mix named Lola and an Irish setter named Dave. Both have very different personalities and a lot of energy! They keep me in line and make sure that I get my daily dose of nature! In April , I had come home from school for my summer break. I was invited out with the Coastal Cultural Canoeing group on a traditional styled Tsimshian canoe.
