Peter (Robocop) Weller, Richard (First Blood) Crenna, and Ernie (Ghostbusters) Hudson head the cast of this deep-sea thriller that isn't ashamed to borrow the best bits from "Alien" and "John Carpenter's The Thing" to have a little fun. While exploring the remains of the Leviathan, a scuttled Russian ship, a crew of underwater miners accidentally returns with a hideous virus which transforms its host into gloriously gross 80's-era murder-beings. Trapped five miles below the surface with no means of escape and a retrieval operation compromised by a hurricane top-side, the crew has to survive the alien mutant menace. Gloriously cheesy sci-fi/horror fare with some incredible underwater effects that still hold up today. Far better than any "Alien" rip-off has any right to be, and great for Friday night beer-and-pretzels fare!
An underwater mining expedition is attacked by the mutant result of a failed genetic experiment.
