My Heroes Have Always Been Monsters Part 18

The Abyss? Leviathan? No children, if you're looking for underwater sci-fi action look no further than Deep Star Six!

This was a super fun movie from 1989, directed by Sean S Cunningham (Friday The 13th). At the bottom of the ocean a crew on an experimental underwater base disturbs a giant creature that starts trying to kill them and destroy the base. Claustrophobic and hopeless, this giant monster flick was one that always held a special place in my heart. Good cast, good concept, good directing, good writing. Missed opportunities?  Needs more gore. If you like giant monster movies, you couldn't ask for anything better than Deep Star Six.
Keep watching the sky, nerds!..And don't go in the water.
